Is your organisation GDPR compliant?

By Admin April 27, 2018

There is now less than one month until the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect on the 25th May. If your organisation has an active CRM or sends online correspondence to a mailing list, chances are you have heard a little about GDPR over the last 24 months.

If you haven’t, no stress but do get in touch!

GDPR, the EU’s newest regulations on data protections and privacy, can feel like a large weight on an organisation’s online communications given the strict compliance requirements.

However if your organisation has planned effectively and gone through the necessary checklists, the GDPR storm will eventuate to be nothing more than a light sunshower. 

Are you ready?

So have you gone through the steps, asked the right questions and received the correct permissions? Hopefully, the answer is yes. Though, it never hurts to ask for a second opinion.

SMI’s core business operations exist around gathering data and engaging with our various sports databases. As a result, it’s been crucial we implement practices which are 100% GDPR compliant not only for ourselves but for our clients.

Our sports partnerships are crucial to our operations so we are here to help any organisations who are not 100% sure about their GDPR status. Not only this but we are keen to illustrate that organisations can still effectively develop fan panels and implement research initiatives in the new data landscape.

Request a chat with our internal GDPR expert and alleviate any of your data concerns.
