Resource: Briefing on data protection from Voluntary Arts

Voluntary arts logoThe Voluntary Arts Briefing on data protection covers all the basics you need to know. It explains everything about the Data Protection Act 1998 and what it means for UK charities and arts organisations. Virtually all groups and organisations hold data of some sort, electronically or in hard copy, and there are certain responsibilities to bear in mind when handling or sharing this information.

This short guide outlines:

  • The purpose of the Act
  • Who and what the Act covers
  • Good practice approaches to data protection
  • Definitions of key terms used in the Act
  • Steps to ensure you are handling your data correctly

Download the briefing on the Voluntary Arts website.
