Are you aware of the new GDPR regulations?
Did you know?
Data Protection law reform means that from 25th May 2018:
All teachers are data controllers under the General Data Protection Regulations.
Data protection legislation covers everyone about whom you keep personal data. This includes employees, volunteers, service users, members, supporters and donors. The legislation:
- requires organisations to register if they keep records (unless they are exempt and includes many smaller charities)
- governs the processing of personal data including 'personal sensitive data'
- requires organisations to comply with eight principles
- allows employees, service users and other contacts to request to see the personal data held on them
