Data protection experts FP Logue Solicitors have created 'General Data Protection Legislation: What Charities Need to Know', a helpful toolkit for charities, and we are happy to provide it for free to charities in Ireland.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into force across the EU on 25 May 2018, replacing and repealing national data protection law. This legislation introduces significant changes including legal and compliance obligations for data controllers and enhanced rights for individuals - so charities need to ensure that they are compliant in the way that they handle the data of beneficiaries, donors, campaigners, volunteers, and more.
This toolkit gives an accessible overview of what data protection is, explains the legislation and recommends practical steps that your organisation can take to ensure compliance and best practice.
The toolkit is free to download, we just ask that you provide some details.
