General Data Protection Regulations

The European Union's General Data Protection Regulations come into effect on the 25th of May.

When will clubs and societies be given advice by the Union on how to comply with the new law?

What action will SUSU be taking to ensure GDPR compliance?

How does this affect the information that the union shares with societies? For example, member lists?

Hi Dan, 

Thank you for your question. Guidance has now gone out to all societies about how to ensure that they are GDPR compliant. An outline of GDPR compliance for societies can also be found here:

I believe that some more guidance will also be going out to society committees closer to Freshers', in time for your influx of new members. If there are any specific questions you have surrounding GDPR and your society, you can contact, or myself and our director of operations are happy to meet committee members to discuss these.

Many thanks, 

Evie Reilly (VP DCI)
