On the 25th of May 2018, the new laws regarding Data Protection which replace the Data Protection Act of 1998 come into play, and this has an impact on charitable organisations and how they operate. It’s a fundamental legal responsibility of every charity to ensure that policies and procedures are put in place before the deadline so that everyone involved can ensure the safety and protection of individuals’ rights.
The rise of the internet has meant that accessing information about charitable organisations, and contributing towards those charities, has become more successful than ever. With the invention of sites such as JustGiving, it’s easier to showcase the plight of your charitable cause, and connect with those willing to help financially.
There’s no need to worry! Data Protection legislation has been around for decades, and this is just an update of those legalities. It’s likely that you already comply with many of the regulations, but at Web Adept, we can check your digital data and make sure that the processes we run on your behalf are compliant.
Our comprehensive GDPR Compliance Check takes the stress out of the changes by creating a checklist that we can use to inspect your site and supply you with a report of any changes that you will need to make. For only £30 + VAT, we can work through your site and supply you with a report of any changes that you will need to make in order to comply. (Please note that if you are currently signed up to a monthly Service Level Agreement with us, your GDPR Compliance Check is FREE).
Please note that this check is on the digital element of your company. For full information regarding the compliance of your everyday business operations, please see the ICO regulations online: https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-the-general-data-protection-regulation-gdpr/
