GDPR - Useful resources
GDPR - resources for my club
GDPR may seem like a challenge to implement, however there is lots of support available to sports clubs.
Commissioned by Sport England, the Sport and Recration Alliance (SRA) is working on a project to help the sports sector comply with GDPR. It has developed a GDPR Toolkit with national organisations, regional organisations and clubs can access to help them develop the correct methods of data processing.
The Toolkit includes template documents which your club can use. These include:
Privacy Notices - this document tells individuals your club deals with what information you collect and why
Data Protection Policies - these policies guide your club's staff and volunteers as to how to handle personal data
Individual Rights - these templates show clubs how to respond to an individual's request for access or erasure of their data, as well as advice on data breaches.
Transferring Data - templates of processing agreements of how to share data outside your organisation
Direct Marketing - template of consent wording and advice on direct marketing to your members
GDPR - is my club compliant?
To help ensure your club is GDPR compliant, the Sport and Recreation Alliance have created a GDPR Compliance Questionniare. This comprehensively goes through GDPR and poses the questions you need to answer to ensure your club is compliant. It can almost be a tick sheet for your club, that goes through almost every aspect of GDPR.
