new Data Protection Regulation The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect in May 2018 and this will have an impact on the way fundraising operates. An important part of complying with GDPR is considering how well your CRM system will support your ease of compliance, as well as reviewing and revising your approach to handling personal data. The Fundraising Regulator’s new guidance has highlighted that organisations should be assessing “what impact their approach to Direct Marketing will have on any existing data management systems (for example, Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems; databases) in order that these systems support the delivery of the agreed approach”.
