On May 25th 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) signified a change to data protection laws in the UK. They inevitably impact membership businesses. Membership businesses will now need to be more transparent about their use of member data and gain overt consent for data collection.
Though larger organisations can appoint a dedicated Data Protection Officer to understand and implement GDPR compliance, smaller businesses may not have the budget. We advise asking your members to opt-in to receive email marketing communications. Also, it’s worth clearly stating your intentions surrounding their personal and behavioural data.
Fortunately, our uHubs are fully compliant with GDPR.
They reduce the bureaucratic costs of factoring in data regulations.
