General Data Protection Regulations

Monday, April 09, 2018

General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union. The aim of the GDPR is to protect all EU citizens from privacy and data breaches.

GDPR comes into force from 25 May 2018 and will impact on all organisations including tennis clubs, venues and in many cases coaches. It will affect how organisation’s collect, use and store individual’s data and information. Tennis clubs and coaches are encouraged to review and amend their data processes in order to ensure that they are compliant with the new regulations and to avoid potentially significant financial penalties.

The LTA have developed GDPR guidance and template resources to help tennis clubs and coaches understand GDPR and put in to place the necessary processes and procedures to be fully compliant.
