General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is legislation to ensure that any organisation that holds personal data provides a reasonable level of protection for it.
What does it all mean?
GDPR places legal obligations on organisations that hold data and enables individuals to better control their personal data. This is a great change for all types of consumers.
Ahead of the new data protection laws, which come into force in May 2018, the NBN Secretariat will be making some changes to the way we process and store data on behalf of the NBN. This will ensure that we are compliant with the new laws, and that everything we do with our member, supporter and data partner information is as clear and transparent as possible. The NBN only holds data that is adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to its purpose. Examples of the data the NBN holds includes names, emails and addresses.
What does this mean for our supporters?
At NBN we strive for best practice and we will make sure that all of your personal information stays secure and that we meet the terms of all upcoming data protection laws and regulation. If you would like more information on GDPR at the NBN please do not hesitate to contact our Nottingham office.
