    If only! Today I've been reading 158 pages on GDPR and being on hold for an hour to talk to the ICO ...

    Had to Google GDPR and ended on Wikipedia a quick scan through and I saw the word "pseudonymization" so had to check what that meant and found this.

    Pseudonymization is a data management and de-identification procedure by which personally identifiable information fields within a data record are replaced by one or more artificial identifiers, or pseudonyms. A single pseudonym for each replaced field or collection of replaced fields makes the data record less identifiable while remaining suitable for data analysis and data processing.

    After reading that think I need a lie down

    They sure don't make it easy for people storing or handling personal data, such as people who run forums or charities.

    I'll send you a triple hug Suzi

    Edit: Not found anything meaningful what ICO means.

    In our church we have to sign forms about how it handles our personal data. I really don't understand it but it must be affecting a lot of organisations.
    I hope you manage to get through it.

    They look at me and think I'm cool, I'm purplefan at night I rule.

    It's the new replacement for Data Protection... ICO is the Information Commissioners Office. Basically I'm trying to get a straight answer and not getting one! It's all a bit of a minefield, but if I mess it up then it's up to a 20 million Euro fine! So it's lots of reading and trying to work out which way is up, but I've got 8 days to sort it, so it'll be fine lol

    All companies whether a big business like who I work for or a sole trader the nhs, police and fire service the dwp if they store a customers personal information they have to make sure it is secure, that is what data protection is about and the gdpr is the new rules that come into affect on 24 or 25th of May, it is data protection why you get asked so many quetions when you ring your bank or electric provider or mobile phone provider etc they need to be sure that they are talking to the correct person how your data is stored is another part aswell and how it is used, its a minefield
