The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) is a regulation by which the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union and the European Commission intend to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union (EU). The UK Government has incorporated these requirements into UK law under the Data Protection Bill, with the regulations coming in to force on Friday, 25th May 2018. The focus of the regulations is to lay out the way in which all organisations handle personal information. They specify the rights of the individual (the data subject) and the responsibilities of any organisation that captures and stores data that can be identified as personal. This includes names, dates of birth, addresses - anything that relates to a person.
DRTT exists to:
“extend the relevance of music, singing and the arts to the widest possible local and regional audience.”
As such, information to enable contact between DRTT and its beneficiaries is an integral part DRTT’s activities and an individual’s involvement with them. DRTT aims to record and use only the minimum amount of information about its beneficiaries to enable its purpose to be achieved.
In our policy, the term "beneficiaries" refers to any individual interested in being kept informed of our activities or projects, or directly taking part in them.
This policy sets out DRTT’s approach.
