understanding and preparing for GDPR

what fundraising professionals need to know

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new set of rules governing the privacy and security of personal data in Europe. When it goes into effect on May 25, 2018, it will replace existing regulations including the Data Protection Directive from 1995.

GDPR goes into effect on May 25, 2018.

Will your organisation be ready?

Know the risk.

If you handle personal data about European individuals, you need to understand your legal basis for being able to use it. You may have to seek consent from those individuals for the activities you undertake with it or rely on your legitimate interests and explain what those are. Either way, GDPR cannot be ignored and if not taken seriously, your organisation could be faced with costly fines.

Think GDPR doesn’t apply to you? Think again.

If you collect data from anyone residing in Europe, GDPR applies to you.
