GDPR: Privacy re-defined

New heights for Accountability Transparency Contracts Response

The quick version

The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation has a wide reach in terms of its international scope and the obligations it places upon those who wish to process the personal data of people in the EU.

To all intents and purposes, the Data Protection Act is ‘GDPR plus’. It enshrines the GDPR into UK law and ensures that, even after BREXIT, UK companies are required to treat personal data with the same level of care and transparency.

It also includes the UK’s requirements in certain areas such as law enforcement, intelligence and defence and introduces two new criminal offences designed to enforce and protect the rights of UK data subjects into UK law.

There is no getting away from it. If you are a UK business or want to do business in the UK, you will need to comply with both the GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018.

This is a good thing. Privacy is integral to the modern economy and the reality is most businesses at least want to do the right thing.

The main impacts

For those who have always made an effort to comply with data protection legislation, many of the changes introduced by the GDPR and Data Protection Act are fairly small. There are however, some areas where the requirements of the new legislation are substantial.

This is not intended to be another site where the wording of each article and recital is reproduced with dire warnings of catastrophic fines for each infringement – there are plenty of those around.

The ICO has some great guidance for business on their website if you want detailed information, but here is our summary some of the areas we think have seen the greatest impact and how that impacts on your business operationally.

It's not all bad news

There are commercial benefits

This video produced by Lloyds Banking Group and featuring the Information Commissioner – Elizabeth Denham – highlights some of the commercial benefits to a Privacy Friendly approach to business and GDPR compliance.

We're excited you'd like to come along!

However, we need to tell you something important before you do:

How we use the personal data you provide when booking to attend an event.

In short, we ask for your name, email, the organisation you represent and phone number. For paid events we also collect billing information to process your order. We use this information to manage the event and your attendance by sending you email and SMS (if you provide a mobile number) confirmations and reminders about the event and any replays which are available. For some events we may invite you to complete optional surveys to either help us tailor the event beforehand or get feedback from you after the event is over.

The information you provide will be transferred to our Webinar platform provider where we use analytics to help measure the effectiveness of our webinars e.g. record whether you attend the event and how long you attended for. We also store your information in our CRM where it may be combined with publicly available information about you or the organisation you represent (such as that from LinkedIn or Companies House) and your communications with us. This combined picture will be used to help identify which of our services may be of interest to the organisation you represent; so, yes, we may market to you but only in your professional capacity and only in a targeted way once we know more about how our services may be of benefit to the organisation you represent. Above all, we promise to stop when you tell us to.
