Important Updates (updated 21th April 2020):
1. There have been many changes in the way the Party operates due to COVID-19. Operating from home brings about new challenges and it is important to be aware of your data protection obligations. Read more here, including data security when using Zoom:
2. It is against the ICO’s guidance to purchase phone numbers from a databroker. You must not purchase phone numbers under any circumstances.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a piece of EU legislation adopted into UK Law via the UK Data Protection Act 2018, came into force on Friday 25th May 2018.
The Party must comply with this legislation in the same way as we need to for Electoral Law. It is vital that Local Party Officers, campaigners and members understand their obligations under the new Data Protection laws.
The Party has adopted a set of Members Data Protection Rules that must be followed by all members of the Party. This page covers all rules, guidance and information published. For further information contact [email protected].
