Data Protection for Unions

It is increasingly important for Unions to protect their members’ data.

We would work with you to map out your data requirements, as a data controller and with your data processors so we can identify your data protection issues and advise you how to be legally compliant with your members’ data and what you need to do with it.

Our comprehensive services include:

Process: legal advice around process improvements for data protection and processing

Documentation review: to ensure existing privacy statements and membership documentation is compliant with current and future legislation

Breaches: breach notification to the ICO, navigating fallout with members and third parties, dealing with threatened claims and litigation against providers in your member services supply chain

International: assisting you if you have a requirement to work with international unions and bodies so that your obligations are met when processing the data of UK and EU citizens
