We hope that these updates to the Code will help fundraisers understand their responsibilities to members of the public when they use their personal data.”Further changes are possible when PECR is reviewed and the new Data Protection Bill is enacted, so the Regulator’s latest revisions to the Code highlight this areas.Dan Fluskey, Head of Policy at the IoF said: “As the deadline for GDPR gets ever closer, it’s really important that fundraisers can see how the Code of Fundraising Practice will change when it comes into effect. We know there has been uncertainty and confusion over recent months and hope that being able to see what the Code will include will help to give fundraisers reassurance and confidence in how they can communicate with supporters after May 25th.” Advertisement Tagged with: Code of Fundraising Practice data protection Fundraising Regulator GDPRcenter_img Changes announced to six areas of the Code of Fundraising Practice (2 August 2017)Dogs Trust breached Code of Fundraising Practice by calling TPS-registered individual (7 June 2016)  156 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis46 About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
