Safeguarding BHUK Member Data and the new General Data Protection Regulation May 25th 2018


The integrity, security and confidentiality of member personal data is very important and a priority for Bladder Health UK.

Your information is held securely by us in order to properly administer the charity, resolve queries you might have and ensure you receive appropriate membership material.

The charity regularly reviews its arrangements for physical and IT security, ensuring these remain aligned to industry-leading practice and continue to robustly safeguard member personal data, protecting against its unauthorised access or misuse.

The charity is also preparing for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which comes into force on 25 May 2018 and will overhaul the UK’s current data protection legislation in place since 1998. While an EU initiative, the Government has broadly welcomed its updating of standards, and committed to its implementation irrespective of Brexit.

GDPR is a response to the enormous technological change (ie. email, internet and social media usage) which has driven dramatic increases in the scale of personal data collected, processed and shared. It recognises that over time the risks of loss or misuse of personal data have grown, with data increasingly transferred and processed globally. In response, GDPR introduces a range of new requirements and enhanced rights for Data Subjects (the individuals to which data relates to) underlined by significantly higher penalties for entities falling to meet its requirements.
