  1. Claire Archibald

    I was so pleased to find this useful guide for freelancers- an accessible, comprehensive yet concise guide that is much needed. I often meet freelancers/small companies that offer services to my clients and many of them need specialised guidance. I try to give them a bit of free advice and then point them in the direction of the ICO website. However, I will now be telling them to purchase RM Girls Data Protection for Freelancers Guide. I bought a copy for myself as well, it’s already highlighted, flagged and well-thumbed!

    This has proved indispensible to me, and has opened my eyes to the subject.

  3. Dave Smyth (verified owner)

    A great guide to data protection for anyone running a small business. Data protection is often viewed as a dry and complicated subject, but by framing the guide around practical questions (e.g. “do I need a cookie notice on my website?”), everything is tackled an engaging way. Highly recommended.
