On the 25th May 2018, the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into force across the UK. This enhances and changes commitments to handling personal data set out in the Data Protection Act (1998), strengthening and unifying data protection for all individuals.
GDPR applies to organisations that take personal data from its customers or members, for example via manual or electronic based formats e.g. member forms, online platforms or club website. It
relates to how the club not only obtains personal information but how it then stores and uses this data.
The British Judo Association is committed to helping clubs and members alike to ensure that they become GDPR compliant by the May deadline.
As such, we have produced a series of toolkit for clubs to assist in the development of their plans. The toolkit is aimed at clubs and is based on Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) guidelines and standards for meeting GDPR compliance.
