It will do. CHQ are working on a policy that conforms to the new legislation and new GO fits in with that. The crux for most of us is how we hold and use personal data and to try and ensure that we keep it safe. So trying to dissuade us from keeping information locally or printed/paper copies of details unsecure ( ie lying around at a HQ ).

New guidance will be published in due course.

Does this cover the difference between having given permission for GG to hold my data and very definitely never having given permission for them to make my name and unit (and therefore where I will be and when) available to hundreds of women nearby?

My understanding is that yes, it does, and that's why some access is more limited than previously. But like BrownieBeth says, speak to HQ, it's their baby.
