BALPPA & GDPR

What is GDPR?

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most important change in data privacy regulation in 20 years. The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and was designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens data privacy and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy. The enforcement date is 25th May 2018 at which time those organisations in non-compliance may face heavy fines.

About BALPPA

BALPPA is a Membership Association which businesses request to join and therefore offer their contact details to be used by the Association for communication purposes.

BALPPA regularly sends out information to Members on its seminars and events, newsletters, surveys, general industry events and news, briefings and updates relating to all aspects of leisure including health and safety and lobbying.

How are Members’ details stored?

BALPPA has a Member Database, accessed only by BALPPA Staff Members in which it stores information and contact details on each Member business including business name, Membership category, date of joining BALPPA, business address and telephone number and key contact personnel (name, job title, email address and telephone number).

How do Members verify the data BALPPA currently stores?
