England and the UK are apparently following this too. Would you please click “Comment” following the web or app version of this item and tell (anonymously, if you prefer) how these new laws might impact your org, agency, or church?

    You are right in suggesting that “England and the UK are apparently following this too”, since England is part of the UK, and the UK is part of the EU!

    How will this affect us? We’re having to put in place stricter guidelines on how we collect data from people (primarily contact details), what we tell them at the point of collection, and what we do with that data once it’s obtained.

    It’s a bit of a headache having to put together all the policies and procedures that will make us proactively compliant, but in the end it will mean we are using our data not only in a legal way but also a more effective way.
