General Date Protection Regulations (GDPR)

There has been an awful lot of questions, comments and conjecture about how the new GDPR applies to a Masonic Lodge.

Attached is a document giving some guidance on how Data Protection under the new GDPR might apply to us, as a fraternity, and what steps we should take to comply or to protect the data we hold on our members.

The second document attached is a template DP Privacy Notice that Lodges can use if they wish.

Please note that you DO NOT need to obtain consent from members to hold and use their data; however, you do have a duty to protect the data you have and you will find details in the guidance to assist in this.

This message and attached contents does not constitute legal advice.

Thanks

Stewart Graham
Chief Operating Officer
