The EU are bringing into force a new regulation on data protection called GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations), which is coming into effect on the 25th May 2018. The GDPR strengthens individual’s rights in respect to their personal data that any organisation may hold on them. This will not only affect businesses, but also voluntary bodies, community groups and sporting organisations.
To help clubs prepare for how this may affect them, Dun Laoghaire Rathdown and South Dublin County Sports Partnerships are hosting a practical information seminar on the evening of the 22nd March in the Talbot Hotel, Stillorgan.
The regulation will be enforced from May 2018 and the transition period is now. This is your chance to find out the facts about how the GDPR will affect your club and the simple steps you can take to get started on the path to being GDPR compliant.
The seminar will address:
- An overview of the Data Protection legislation
- Specific changes arising from GDPR
- Impact to sports clubs
- Tools and supports available
Of particular interest to the person in the Club responsible for managing membership information, admission is free, but places are limited and must be pre-registered at https://gdprinformationseminar.eventbrite.ie.
