The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force in May 2018.
It applies to any organisation processing and holding personal data.
Personal data is any information related to someone, that can be used
to directly or indirectly identify that person. It can be anything
from a name, postal address and telephone number(s), an email address,
bank details, posts on social networking websites, medical
information, or even a computer IP address.
As a charity, we have always been committed to data protection and
adhering to current legislation. The way that we handle and process
data will be affected by this new regulation when it comes into force
and we have been working on the requirements for some time.
GDPR requirements include:
consent that can be withdrawn as easily as given
right to view all data
right to be forgotten
right to data in a readable format
unambiguous or explicit consent, which may be service-specific
