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.
