What is GDPR?

New data protection regulations came into force on 25th May 2018 with the General Data Protection Regulation, so what does that mean to you?

General Data Protection Regulation or GPDR is a new set of EU regulations to replace the existing Data Protection Act.  The new regulations set guidelines for the collection and processing of personal information.

Have the Hospice got any of my personal information?

Personal information is any information that can be used to identify you.  The information the Hospice holds and how they use it can depend on the relationship you have with them.  They are legally required to hold some personal information to fulfil statutory obligations such as the collection of Gift Aid.

Sandra Britten, Deputy Chief Executive at the Hospice said, “We use your information to give you content about how patients are helped by hospice care, to let you know about other ways you can help such as fundraising, volunteering and ambassadorship.  On some occasions we will have to share your data with a Third Party so that they can print and deliver Direct Mail and Email from us.  Your data is protected by our contracts with them. We never have and never will sell your data.”

Rebecca Jobson, Senior Manager Fundraising added, “You are in control of your data.  You can contact us at any time to change the data we hold and how you want to be contacted.  You can find out more in our Cookies and Privacy Policy
