GDPR refers to the ‘accountability principle’, which means the expectation that organisations – in this case all local Petanque Clubs, Leagues and Regions – will put measures in place to minimise the risk of breaches and uphold the protection of personal data.

When managing data within Sport:80 you can be confident that your data is held in a technically secure and compliant way.

What this means for you

You should use the Sport:80 system directly as far as possible and avoid using ‘offline’ saved data. However, if you really need to export data into spreadsheets, reports or other systems you should use the minimum amount of data necessary and be aware that you are personally responsible and accountable for keeping it secure, and compliant with UK GDPR. How secure is your laptop?

Thank you for taking the time to read and understand this overview of GDPR principles.
