The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most significant piece of European privacy legislation in recent history, replacing that of the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive (European Directive 95/46/EC). It aims to support the rights individuals have on data about themselves which is collected and stored. It also aims to detect, identify and mitigate against data breaches or leaks for all companies in the EU, as well as enforcing reporting on these issues. This aims to create one uniform policy across the EU regardless of whether the UK is part of the European Union. Any business that deals with EU nationals and business alongside their data must comply with the legislation.


Momentum Athlete Group Ltd aims to comply with the applicable GDPR regulations as a data processor and controller. Working alongside its employees, athletes and partners it will comply with the GDPR legislation that came into force on 25th May 2018.
