Despite the UK exiting the EU, the British government has said GDPR will still apply and charities must comply. Many charities are still learning the details of the new regulation and whether or not their current data practices will still comply with data protection law.
This breakfast briefing aims to cut through the confusion and give you practical advice to ensure your charity is prepared for the future.
Book before 19 January to take advantage of our early-bird discounts.

This session will explain the key concepts: what is ‘personal data’; which activities count as ‘processing’ and how to understand whether you are a controller or a processor. We will visit the new requirements for valid consent and how and when you can use other lawful bases for your activities. Serena will also touch on the new standard for transparency and how that affects your privacy policies.Serena Tierney, partner, VWV

10.20AM - 10.50AMWhat GDPR can't tell you
How many times to contact a supporter? How long to keep donor records? Should you use consent or legitimate interest? As GDPR is looming, lots of charities and fundraisers are asking these questions (and others), but the new legislation in itself doesn't provide all the answers. GDPR is about following principles, being clear and open, giving people choice over how their data is used, and making sure that your charity can demonstrate compliance. In this session we'll go through what GDPR can't tell you, and how charities can take an approach that puts their supporters first and keeps them on the right side of the law.Daniel Fluskey, head of policy and research, Institute of fundraising
