General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) - Resources Available

Sports and Recreation Alliance have developed a free toolkit to help sports clubs and organisations become compliant with the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). The resources have been produced with support from Sport England, explain the new laws regarding the collection and processing of personal information.

GDPR comes into effect on Friday 25th May 2018 and replaces the Data Protection Act 1998 - all sports organisations will need to be compliant – irrespective of their size.

The Sports and Recreation Alliance toolkit, which is being released in three stages before the deadline, is a series of templates tailored for grassroots clubs to help them be compliant, there is also a range of guidance available that summarises the regulations and helps clubs to adapt the templates to their own situations.

The GDPR toolkit includes:

  • Data privacy notices
  • A consent form for direct marketing
  • A GDPR compliance questionnaire to help clubs create a checklist of things to consider.
