GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATIONS (GDPR)
The new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) legislation comes into force from 25 May 2018. More information about the GDPR is available on the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) website: https://ico.org.uk/
NAKMAS is committed to process any personal information it holds only in ways that are fair, transparent and meet its legal obligations; in other words, in accordance with the Data Protection Act and its successor the General Data Protection Regulations.
NAKMAS will take care over email addresses which in addition to the GDPR are subject to the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations (PECR).
, which sets out how data is used by NAKMAS to supply membership services.
We have also updated some of our forms to fulfil our legal obligations for ongoing consent: affiliation application, student and instructor licence forms, so far. Please use the forms from the downloads section of our website rather than old copies. The DBS packs also now include an additional form for consent.
Guidelines for instructors are included in this pack, along with a sample form which can be used in your clubs, and a form of consent which needs to be completed and returned to us before the deadline of 25 May 2018. Data Protection Principles
The legislation sets out various data protection principles. These include that personal information is:
*Used fairly and lawfully
*Used for limited, specifically stated purposes
*Used in a way that is adequate, relevant and not excessive
*Kept for no longer than is absolutely necessary
*Kept safe and secure
*Not transferred outside the European Economic Area without adequate protection
We also recommend a training module with Educare which is certificated, gives a CPD point, and can be done online for a low cost in approximately an hour. This is easy to understand and will give you a general overview of GDPR. This can be found at https://www.educare.co.uk/courses/an-introduction-to-the-general-data-protection-regulation
should you wish to do this.
The website and social media feeds will be updated as we get information and with any changes of documentation. GDPR Compliant NAKMAS Forms
