The need to protect, process and utilise data lawfully is crucial and essential to basic charity governance. In recent years, both the UK and the EU have introduced stringent regulation to control how businesses process valuable information and customer data, and organisations in the not-for-profit sector are not exempt.

Non-compliance can carry the threat of imprisonment and considerable fines, not to mention sometimes irreversible damage to the valuable reputation and public relations of a charity. Our practical down-to-earth advice and strategies coupled with our in-depth experience of advising charities and social enterprises will ensure that you are fully compliant with the law, and could include a full audit of your data storage and processing systems.

We can advise on:

  • UK Data Protection Act and EU data protection law
  • GDPR
  • Confidentiality agreements
  • Privacy Policies and other data-related policies
  • Data loss and security breaches
  • Data protection audits
  • E-privacy and new technology
  • Global data transfers
  • Reputation management
  • Subject Access Requests
  • Social media
