Important Reminder: Information for clubs about General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

We would like to remind you of important information regarding Data Protection. A change in government legislation regarding data protection called The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be in place from 25th May 2018. Athletics and running clubs will have to ensure that they are compliant with the new Government regulations. Last November England Athletics produced guidance for affiliated clubs and associations to help with identifying the key areas that they should now be addressing as a result of the additional requirements arising from the upcoming introduction of GDPR.
