Building the Database
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
New regulations that give individuals more rights over their personal data and stronger protections of that data are currently being introduced in to UK law. The final version of the General Data Protection Regulation will take effect from May 2018. While definitive guidance is not yet available, all UK churches must make preparations for their introduction. Guidance for Anglican churches, which may also be suitable for some non-Anglican denominations, is available through the web link shown opposite.
As the new regulations will have a direct impact on the creation of Communication Database, specific guidance will be provided when the final legal position becomes clear.
