General Data Protection Regulation
New laws on data protection will come into force later this year. The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will take effect in the UK from 25 May 2018 and will replace the existing law on data protection (the Data Protection Act 1998). This new law gives individuals more rights and protection regarding how their personal data is used by organisations.
Parishes and churches must comply with the requirements of the GDPR and a GDPR Toolkit has been developed to help parishes in Southwark understand what they need to do to comply with the new laws. The GDPR toolkit as well as individual checklists and editable templates can be downloaded below.
If you have data protection queries please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We will be organising GDPR events, and dates will be posted here and on our What's On pages.
