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:
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.
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.
