The Little Edi Foundation is aware that the security of your personal or company information is an important concern. The protection of your data is a serious matter to us and we want to be transparent about the data we maintain and the data we discard.

This privacy policy outlines the security measures we have in place for data protection, in line with the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) enforced from May 25th, 2018.


The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most important change in data privacy regulation in 20 years. This new regulation replaces the existing Data Protection Act (1998).

As part of the process of working to compliance with the new regulations internally we have:

  • Reviewed the purposes of our processing activities, and selected the most appropriate lawful basis (or bases) for each activity.
  • Checked that the processing is necessary for the relevant purpose, and are satisfied that there is no other reasonable way to achieve that purpose.
  • Documented our decision on which lawful basis applies to help us demonstrate compliance.
  • Included information about both the purposes of the processing and the lawful basis for the processing in this privacy notice.
