A free toolkit to help sports clubs and organisations become compliant with the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) has been made available to downloadOpen in a new window.
The documents, produced by the Sports and Recreation Alliance and funded through an £85,000 grant from Sport England, explain the new laws regarding the collection and processing of personal information.
GDPR, which replaces the Data Protection Act 1998, comes into effect on 25 May and all sports organisations will need to be compliant – irrespective of their size.
The Sports and Recreation Alliance toolkit, which will be released in three stages before the deadline, is a series of templates specifically tailored for grassroots clubs to help them achieve compliance.
There is also a series of handy guidance notes and advice summaries to help clubs use them correctly and adapt them to their own situation.
The GDPR toolkit includes:
- Data privacy notices
- A consent form for direct marketing
- A GDPR compliance questionnaire to help clubs create a checklist of things to consider.
