This information (PHI, PII, personnel data, etc.) is covered by the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 2018). Meeting these data protection requirements can present issues both for normal service operations as well as specific issues for demo and short-term loan equipment.
