There are some new privacy regulations coming in to effect which affect all businesses, online sites, charities and clubs. Regardless of the size.

When the regulations come in to force, every organisation or individual that collects personal information about its users, clients, members etc. will be required to have processes and policies in place. The main benefit is to allow the individual to see what personal information is held about them and the ability to request a change of incorrect information or the removal of the information. Thus giving the individual more control over their personal data.

Personal information doesn't mean just your sensitive information, such as medical records and bank details. It also covers less sensitive information such as email address and IP addresses.

Pre-ticked opt-in boxes for marketing or opt-out boxes for marketing, will no longer be allowed. The user must positively indicate consent that they opt-in.

To show what we are doing to ensure the DIBB is compliant with GDPR, I have put together some points below.

What is GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)

GDPR is a European regulation that comes into effect 25 May, 2018. The GDPR regulates the collection, processing (this also refers to storage of data), transport, and use of personal information about individuals in Europe.

Where can I get more information about GDPR

This post is unable to cover all aspects of this new regulation. The GDPR itself is HERE and there is a guide to GDPR at the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) HERE

Why does GDPR apply to the DIBB

To allow users to interact with our web site and it's features we ask visitors to register with the DIBB. By registering you use a small amount of personal information to create an account. The personal information you provide is stored within our software and as such that means we have to comply with the GDPR.

How will the DIBB comply with GDPR

We have been evaluating theDIBB for the last few months to identify how theDIBB collects and handles personal information that is subject to GDPR. We have identified a few areas that need to be changed to allow the DIBB to comply with GDPR.

What we are doing:

  • Creating an easy access facility for members to see exactly what personal information we hold about them and to outline the process for change or removal of personal information.
  • Changing our Terms of Use, Site Rules and Privacy policy. Please refer to these regularly as they may change to comply with GDPR and any additional data protection laws the UK may pass as we leave the EU.
  • Creating an optional opt-in facility for things like marketing, offers, newsletters, etc.

How will this affect your use of the DIBB

Under normal use there should be no real change to the way you use the DIBB or what the DIBB provides as a service.

The DIBB already takes members privacy seriously and we only collect and process the personal information that is necessary to allow the use of the site and it's features such as your log in details.

{Edit} GDPR changes have now been completed for the DIBB. You find new Terms and Conditions and New Privacy Policy in the footer of the page.
Change the way you look at things & the things you look at change
