GDPR - General Data Protection Regulation
As of May 25th 2018, the EU's new GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) came into effect.
The following provides additional information for you on what exactly GDPR is, how GJIHC will comply with these new regulations as well as useful resources for you to review to better understand GDPR.
So What Exactly Is GDPR?
GDPR is a new set of regulations being implemented across the European Union to standardise data privacy regulation.
It will apply to all organisations that handle data from EU citizens, including organisations based outside of the EU.
What Are The Things That GDPR Cover?
GDPR outlines the responsibilities for both Data Controllers (those collecting personal data, for example, a sports club from its members) and Data Processors (those processing this information, for example, GJIHC / EIHA when registering players to the leagues).
It aims to ensure that data is:
handled in a lawful, clear and transparent way
collected and processed for legitimate purposes
accurate and up to date
processed in a manner that is secure, preventing unauthorised access.
Ability to manage Right to access requests and the right to be forgotten requests
How is GJIHC becoming GDPR Compliant?
At GJIHC we have always taken the management of our members data seriously and we're implementing additional safeguards through our processes for handling data, the transmission of data, right to access, and right to be forgotten and additional requirements that GDPR regulation brings.
