The 25th May is the day when the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will enter into force.

Leisure providers as all entities processing personal data will need to comply with the new Regulation. In doing so, they will have to review the contracts, especially the consent rules, the possibility to transfer personal data, the rights of individuals toward their data, the accountability of the data holder in case of data breach, etc. In general, stricter rules will be applied on how to handle, protect and use personal data  and increased penalties will be in place for non-compliance.
