General Data Protection Regulations
GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation and it will change how organisations process and handle data, replacing the old data protection directive from 1995. The aim of this new legislation is to synchronise data privacy laws throughout Europe, whilst also giving greater protection and rights to individuals.
It comes into effect from 25th May 2018.
The data that this relates to is essentially any piece of information which could identify you. This will include your name, address, phone numbers and email addresses.
Under GDPR you will have a number of rights. These are:
JDA uses the data collected to maintain accurate internal records of our supporters, volunteers, staff, service users and their families and others, and our engagement with them. These records facilitate our activities run in accordance with our charitable objectives, communicating with our supporters and raising funds and awareness about our work through campaigns and events.
The CRM software we use is called eTapestry and is a product of Blackbaud Europe. Blackbaud Europe is fully committed to making sure their solutions are compliant with all regulations, as they are currently.
