GDPR - build your own privacy notice
As part of your journey to GDPR compliance you'll need to update your privacy notice (or create one if you don't have a policy already).
Your privacy notice usually sits on your website, and you can link to it when you're asking people to subscribe to your newsletter or enter their booking details.
The Information Commissioners have issued some of their harshest penalties for non-notification. Your privacy notice is a way for you to inform your audience on what data you collect, what you do with it, and why.
It's a chance for you to build that relationship of trust with your audiences, and present yourself as an open and honest organisation. These are qualities that set the arts, culture, and heritage sector apart from the commercial sphere - so we should be emphasising them as much as we can.
Best of all - this is an easy win. It doesn't take long to create, and it doesn't have to be a wordy or complex document. In fact, the ICO encourages you to keep it simple.
Download this free toolkit to create your own GDPR compliant privacy notice. We’ll provide a real-life example for each section, along with a text box for you to fill in the information about your own organisation.
