The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) sets out legal guidelines for the collection and processing of personal information and it replaces the Data Protection Act 1998. It comes into effect on 25 May 2018. All organisations will need to be compliant.
To support organisations with their GDPR compliance The Sport & Recreation Alliance have launched a suite of resources which are targeted at national organisations, regional organisations and clubs operating across the sport and recreation sector.
The first batch of resources include data privacy notices, a consent form for direct marketing and a GDPR compliance questionnaire to help you create a checklist of things to consider. These templates are supported by guidance notes and advice summaries to help you use them correctly and adapt them to your own organisation.
You can access the first batch of resources on the website below, additional batches will be available in the coming weeks.
Please note: some National Governing Body's (NGB) have also issued guidance notes and you may already be following these. If you are a charity you can also look at the ICO (Information Commissioner's Office) and their GDPR guides for charities. The ICO are the body that control GDPR.
