UK data protection law

"The Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) has published a statement of intent outlining planned reforms in the Data Protection Bill. Reforms include: giving individuals more control over their personal data by providing easier access; parents or guardians will be required to give consent to information services where a child is under the age of 13; the right to be forgotten whereby individuals will be able to ask for their personal data to be erased - this will include provision to allow people to require social media platforms to delete information they posted during their childhood."
