Right. There are bound to be loose ends and special cases we haven’t thought of with GDPR, so please share any questions, problems or comments from your club and let’s make sure we pool our knowledge via these pages. I hope we won’t have to spend too much time on the subject… but DO make sure you incorporate the simple practices and documentation required by GDPR into your club routine without delay. It is the law now, so let’s not cut any corners.
