General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and what your club will need to do to comply with the Law.

The new General Data Protection Regulation will be replacing the Data Protection Act 1998 and will come into force in the UK on 25 May 2018.

 All Archery Clubs, Counties & Regions will need to comply with the regulations.  GDPR applies whether you pay staff or are all volunteers, whether you have a club house or not, whether you have 10 members or 1000 members………… there are no exemptions!   

 There is now a period up to 25 May 2018 for implementing any changes that organisations need to make to become ‘GDPR compliant’. 

 In order to support you we have produced a short guide which will give you an introduction to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the first steps that you need to take to ensure that your club is GDPR compliant.

There is further information available at the ICO’s website and the sports & recreation alliance have a tool kit with downloadable documents at
