The new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) has been published and comes into effect on 25 May 2018. The legislation will provide key changes that will need to be addressed even by Allotment Associations. These regulations apply to any data controllers or data processors, so if you collect personal data in the running or organisation these regulations will apply to you.
It is better to use the Regulator as a source of direct information. www.ico.org.uk
The National Allotment Society is happy to provide guidance on specific members’ queries as they arise and there are new guidance documents in the members section of the website.
