Charity compliance with GDPR – privacy notices

Does your charity receive, collect, hold or use any personal data? It is very likely that it does, in which case you will hopefully have already implemented the necessary measures in order to comply with the GDPR. In particular you should have adopted a privacy notice to provide information to data subjects about what you do with their personal data. In case you have not yet adopted a privacy notice, or if you wish to review and amend or replace your current form of notice, a form of privacy notice has been added to the portfolio of charity document templates.

New form of privacy notice document:

This new Privacy Notice For A Charity (GDPR Compliant) template will assist your charity’s trustees to formulate a privacy notice tailored to their own requirements. The template can be edited and then used by a charity to provide detail to data subjects in a number of key areas, as required by the GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018, including how their personal data is collected by the charity, the source of that data, how it is used, and how it is shared by the charity.

You will need to adapt the template to meet your charity’s particular needs and circumstances. As always, you should seek legal advice as to whether and how this template will need to be edited to meet the particular requirements of your charity.
