Opt in, opt out or shake it all about — a free briefing on the new data protection laws

Charities have had a bumpy ride recently, with some big-name organisations under severe scrutiny because of their fundraising practices and others fined for data protection breaches.

Our old friend Simon Lee, now of Hempsons Solicitors in London, has kindly sent us a new factsheet he has written with his colleague Philippa Doyle.

In it they consider the implications for charities, social enterprises and the wider third sector of the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), which will be law from May 2018.

How will the GDPR change our lives? Should we opt in or opt out? What about the personal data we already hold? Do people have to consent to everything we do with their data? And what could happen if we get it wrong?

These are the questions their paper considers.
