UK-GDPR Representative Service

The UK-GDPR representative is the point of contact for all questions concerning the data protection of UK citizens and the contact for data protection supervisory authorities. 

When do you need a UK-GDPR Representative?

If you are a controller or processor not established in the UK and process personal data of data subjects who are in the UK, you must appoint a representative. This representative in the UK is the point of contact for all questions concerning the data protection of UK citizens and the contact for data protection supervisory authorities.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is applicable irrespective of where a company is located and where the processing takes place as long as the processed data pertains to data subjects in the UK.

A representative must be appointed when the processing activities are related to the offering of goods or services, irrespective of whether a payment of the individuals is required, or the monitoring of the behaviour of individuals in the UK.

Even the analysis of visitors of your website can be considered monitoring. If one of the above criteria is given, you need to appoint a representative, unless an exception applies. The obligation to designate a representative in the UK does not apply to processing which is occasional, does not include, on a large scale, processing of special categories of data like racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs or processing of personal data relating to criminal convictions and offences, and is unlikely to result in a risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons, taking into account the nature, context, scope and purposes of the processing.
