Governance Policies

What is the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) exactly?

GDPR was adopted by the European Parliament in April 2016 and comes into force on 28 May 2018.

In the UK, the current Data Protection Act 1998 sets out how your personal information can be used by companies, government and organisations. GDPR changes how personal data can be used. Both personal data and sensitive personal data are covered by GDPR. Personal data, a complex category of information, broadly means a piece of information that can be used to identify a person. Companies covered by the GDPR will be more accountable for their handling of people’s personal information, which means that organisations will need to implement vigorous data protection policies and possess relevant documents on how data is processed. As well as putting new obligations on companies and organisations collecting personal data, GDPR also gives individuals more power to access the information that is held about them. One of the most talked about elements of the GDPR is the power for regulators to fine businesses that do not comply with it. GDPR states offences with serious consequences can have fines of up to 20 million euros or 4% of a firm’s global turnover, whichever is greater.

GDPR will have a varying impact on businesses and organisations. To help prepare for the introduction of GDPR, certain steps such as making business leaders aware of the regulation, determining which information is held, updating procedures around subject access requests and requests for personal information to be removed, and what should happen in the event of personal data breach must be implemented. Policies and procedures for these are below. In short, Naval and Military Bible Society may hold information relating to name, address, telephone number and email, linked to an organisation such as ATC, Royal Air Force, AFCU or Mission to Seafarers (or similar organisations); data held about you can be accessed by writing to us at the Castaway Office address; and you can request removal of any or all information held about you from our records, again by writing to us.
