“As will writers, we collect a lot of personal information which can include sensitive notes also. The whole GDPR issue has brought on a new challenge to our working practice but the build-up hype it seems has been forgotten. Data collection and storage is an extremely important part of our work and this is a great opportunity to get professional advice on this issue to avoid a possible challenge later on.”
