The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will benefit all of us, it will ensure that your personal information is protected from misuse by any organisation. It will also ensure that, as a data controller, each club, commission and board member will be accountable for how they collect, use and store information about Volleyball Ireland members under their remit. It is critically important that every member is aware of the changes that GDPR will bring and how that impacts them, either as a volunteer working on behalf of the club or as an individual member.
This awareness will also benefit all of us in our personal lives as GDPR also relates to banks, insurance companies, utility providers, on-line marketing etc. Clubs and commissions should ensure that information relating to GDPR is made available to Volleyball Ireland.
