With the new EU Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) due to come into effect on 25 May, what advice and guidance will the Union be providing for Clubs and Societies in advance of this so that they can be prepared to meet the new stringent requirements?

Hi James, 

We plan to be issuing guidance to our clubs and societies within the next few days. Unfortunately we are still waiting on the University for some clarity/support on certain issues, as our own student data is supplied by them. In the meantime, myself and the Director of Operations have met with several students from different societies regarding specific queries/concerns. If any society would like to come in and talk about this topic we'd be happy to meet them.

If you have nay more specific questions I can find an answer them for you at

Many thanks, 

Evie Reilly (VP Democracy and Creative Industries)
