The Fundraising Regulator's Code consultation on data protection: our final response
The Institute of Fundraising welcomed the opportunity to contribute to the Fundraising Regulator’s consultation on the Code of Fundraising Practice (the Code) reviewing data protection. With GDPR coming it is of course a hugely important area, and one where there has been a lot of debate and discussion.
It is essential that all charities and fundraising organisations are fully compliant with data protection requirements. With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into effect in May 2018, we fully support a review of the Code so that it clearly includes the standards that charities must meet to fulfil their legal obligations and ensure that the privacy rights of individuals are respected.
As always, we responded to the consultation in full to reflect the thoughts and priorities of our members. You can read the final response here.
