The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect on 25 May 2018. GDPR replaces the old Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA).
Although many of the GDPR’s main concepts and principles are much the same as those under the DPA, there are a number of changes for clubs to consider.
Sport England commissioned the Sport and Recreation Alliance to lead a project to help support the sport sector meet the legislative requirements of GDPR. If you would like to access further guidance documents why not head over to the Sport and Recreation Alliance website.
There are also a range of guidance documents on the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) website.
Swim England North West have pulled together a set of Model General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) documents based on the Sport and Recreation Alliance templates which have been put into a generic format to be adopted by any affiliated organisation.
