New data regulation legislation known as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect from 25 May 2018. Speaking about it, Professor Rob Campbell, NFHW Trustee said “As a registered charity, the National Forum for Health and Wellbeing has taken steps to comply with this regulation. NFHW will contact all organisations and individuals whose details it holds, to inform them of our responsibility and seek their consent. Anyone interested should contact the NFHW for further details.”
Below is the communique sent by the NFHW to all the interested parties.
“We are contacting you as you are included in one of our lists of contacts who might want to be sent information relating to events and activities organised by the National Forum for Health and Wellbeing.
New legislation applies from 25th May this year which changes the way we keep and use your data. This is known as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and means we have to seek your permission to continue to retain your details in order to contact you.
