Preparing for the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)
Change in law from 25 May 2018
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) is a regulation by which the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union and the European Commission intend to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union (EU). It also addresses the export of personal data outside the EU. The GDPR aims primarily to give control back to citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU.

DLT (District Leadership Team) has been in touch with TI world headquarters Legal department. They have informed us that they are aware of the upcoming changes and that their team is working on proper procedures and policies which will be communicated with the clubs and districts in the near future.
We have also been informed that they will be having high-level discussions with TI Board members soon now that the new World HQ in Denver has been officially opened this week.
Whilst we understand the frustration that the lack of information is having across our district, please do not seek advice from GDPR experts as their information may very well conflict with the directions from TI Legal.
