Changes to data protection
06 November 2017 IN: Parish News
New regulations on data protection come into effect on 25 May 2018 which give individuals more rights and protection in how their personal data is used by organisations. Parishes must comply with its requirements, just like any other charity or organisation.
As Data Controllers, all parishes need to be aware of the actions they should take in order to meet the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).
A guide to the new regulations, draft documentation and a useful checklist have been prepared and are available for you to download from www.parishresources.org.uk/gdpr
