We’ve Made It Easy for You to Comply with GDPR

Posted in News, tagged with GDPR, government, on April 5, 2018

The GDPR – General Data Protection Regulation – becomes law on 25th May 2018. It creates rules about what data you keep – email addresses, account details etc, how you use it, how you safeguard it and how long you retain it.

There is a considerable amount of scaremongering and poor advice at large, which if followed would put you to unnecessary time and expense.

It is quite simple to meet your GDPR obligations – and to make that as easy as possible for APA members, we have created two documents, which you can use to ensure you comply – attached below:

  1.  A checklist, setting out what data you can keep, how you should safeguard it and the options you should give people to unsubscribe from your emails if they wish to do so.
  2.  A Data Protection Policy (which you need under GDPR). You simply put your company name on it and adopt it as your policy and you have complied.

We will organise a meeting for APA members shortly, to explain the documents further and, if you have any questions, please ask.
