A Quick Reference Guide to GDPR Do’s and Don’ts (a checklist)
The following advice (strongly recommended) will become second nature as we increasingly get into the habit of “thinking GDPR” when we know we are dealing with personal data items such as names, postal and/or email addresses, telephone numbers etc which can be used to identify an individual person.

Each one of us at LNPC (Liberton Northfield Parish Church) has responsibility for compliance with GDPR (the EU General Data Protection Regulation) enforced from May 25th 2018, whether part of a recognised group within LNPC or not.
