Fundraising Regulator releases consent and data guidance
Guide designed to help charities better understand their responsibilities in relation to donor consent, data protection and legitimate interests
The Fundraising Regulator has today released it’s guidance titled Personal Information and Fundraising: Consent, Purpose and Transparency, aimed at helping charities better understand their responsibilities in relation to donor consent, data protection and legitimate interests.
The guidance has been published alongside six case studies, showing examples of charities at different stages in the process of achieving full data compliance who have reconsidered their approach to donor consent over the past 12 months.
An actions checklist and self-assessment toolkit has also been published to accompany the guidance, and help charities with the practical issues surrounding consent and personal data processing.
