In preparation for the upcoming changes to GDPR on 25th May 2018, we are actively reviewing our Data Protection Policy. This will include reviewing membership lists and mailing and contact lists to ensure we have explicit consent to hold all personal information.
The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is Europe’s new framework for data protection laws. It replaces the previous 1995 Data Protection Directive, which current UK law is based upon and covers how organisations look after individual’s personal information. The Government has confirmed that the UK’s decision to leave the European Union will not alter this.
