The data protection regulation commonly referred to as the ‘GDPR’, will come into force throughout the EU and EEA on May 25th, 2018. This regulation is highly significant for any organisation who handles or monitors the personal data of individuals within the EU and EEA. The regulation aims to:
- Safeguard the personal data privacy rights of individuals.
- Heighten accountability for how personal data is acquired and handled.
The GDPR applies to all organisations who collect, share and use the personal data of EU/EEA residents or who offer goods and services to, or monitors EU/EEA residents. South Dublin County Volunteer Centre and South Dublin County Sports Partnership are delighted to collaborate on an information workshop for community groups and sports organisations operating within South Dublin to hear more about the legislation and learn about best practice and the law.
