GDPR and Personal Data

What is GDPR?

GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation.

It’s the UK version of EU data protection legislation. If we break this law, we risk consequences to the whole organisation and our ability to communicate.

Here's a short 6-minute video explainer of why GDPR is important to you and XR.

GDPR is about showing respect to rebels. We want to ensure that all rebels’ personal data is treated with respect and protected from misuse. GDPR provides a sensible set of principles that can help us to do that. If you’re collecting or using personal data, the resources here will help you to understand what you need to do.

Our GDPR training deck is packed with exercises to help you remember the core concepts!

It's available here.

What to do next

Planning on getting personal data? Already got personal data? Changing what you do with personal data?

There is a Data Checklist here to prompt questions about new data collection. Its also a good starting point if you have data and have got to catch up on the planning part.
