We’ve provided below a Template Privacy Statement and an Example Data Audit. A reminder, we are not Data Protection Specialists or Lawyers, but these come from our practical analysis of the current and emerging Data Protection / GDPR regime. Other templates and suggestions could be equally valid, but its our belief these comply with requirements. They are offered on a community use basis, and without liability.

Template Privacy Statement
Sample Data Audit

We also have a guide to Data Protection and GDPR as we understand it.  As a recap, from our last post:

The guidance in this document is aimed at individual teachers and small studios. Please remember we are accountants and business advisers, not Privacy Lawyers, and this content is our practical interpretation of the law – our MD Jessica runs a small yoga business, and this guidance is based loosely on what she has done.

In all honesty, although its fashionable, you probably don’t need to be sending blanket emails to all your contacts asking them to resubscribe or opt in, unless your mailing list was acquired through nefarious means – in which case data protection probably isn’t really troubling you (although it should).

You probably do need a Privacy Statement on your website, and to spend a bit of time auditing the classes of data you have.
