She can be reached via A new Working Party has been formed to produce guidance on Legitimate Interests and the GDPR.The DPN Legitimate Interests Working Group has been formed by The Data Protection Network (DPN), the DMA, ISBA and cross-sector data protection specialists, and is chaired by Robert Bond, partner at Bristows LLP. It is producing the guidance on the basis of Article 40 (2) of the GDPR, which states:“Associations and other bodies representing categories of controllers or processors may prepare codes of conduct, or amend or extend such codes, for the purpose of specifying the application of this Regulation, such as with regard to … (b) the Legitimate Interests pursued by controllers in specific contexts.”The guidance will be aimed at both the not-for-profit sector and commercial businesses, and will include practical advice on a number of areas including:Understanding what Legitimate Interests areIdentifying areas of processing where Legitimate Interests may applyMaking Legitimate Interest Assessments (LIAs) that meet the crucial ‘Balance of Interests Condition’ thresholdEffectively and transparently communicating Legitimate Interests to consumersSupporting the individual’s right to object to processing under Legitimate InterestsIt will cover a wide range of uses of personal data to highlight potential risks and help individuals understand why Legitimate Interests may be beneficial for them as well as for organisations.The Working Party expects to submit its draft guidance to the ICO for review and comment in early April.Rachel Aldighieri, DMA managing director, said:“Specifics for using legitimate interest are currently conspicuous by their absence from the ICO’s guidance. Marketers need to know the “how, when and why” of Legitimate Interests as a legal basis for contacting potential customers so they can better understand and better prepare their businesses to operate properly and compliantly under the GDPR from May 2018.“The Information Commissioner, Elizabeth Denham, said she wants to work with industry to develop practical guides, which is why the DMA joined the Data Protection Network’s Legitimate Interests Working Party to work with the ICO and draft practical guides to help the industry.” Advertisementcenter_img Chair of the Working Party, Robert Bond said:“A cross-industry guide to the appropriate reliance on the use of Legitimate Interests to lawfully process personal data is both timely and necessary in order to support the work of the ICO in creating practical advice on Consent and other lawful data processing mechanisms both now and under GDPR.”  105 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis19 Melanie May | 31 March 2017 | Newslast_img read more

Trail Mix: Visiting the Ralph Stanley Museum

first_imgAfter leaving Charlottesville in 2004 and moving to the mountains of Southwest Virginia, I taught in a school located just miles from hallowed ground in the bluegrass world.Ralph Stanley, bluegrass icon and patriarch, was born and raised in Dickenson County. With his brother Carter, in The Stanley Brothers, and later with his own band, The Clinch Mountain Boys, Ralph forever altered the American songbook with his high lonesome take on old time and bluegrass music.The year I began teaching outside of Clintwood, Virginia, the Ralph Stanley Museum opened its doors. With a calendar full of events and workshops, along with a stunning collection of artifacts and memorabilia, the museum is a hallmark on The Crooked Road, the musical road trip that winds through Virginia’s mountains and showcases traditional music, and it is a must see for fans of Ralph Stanley and bluegrass music. A mere $5.00 affords you entrance to the museum and,with rooms available to rent upstairs, you can even spend the night!I recently got the chance to talk with Judy Steele and Vonda Shortridge about the museum, its importance to the town of Clintwood, and the legacy of the man it honors.BRO – We are approaching the first anniversary of Ralph Stanley’s death. Pretty easy to say that the museum is now more important than ever?JS – Absolutely, and his legacy in old time music will continue through the videos and the music that can be seen and heard in the museum. His fans knew he remained true to his roots and the museum will give generations to come a chance to visit a museum that highlights the old time music in its original form. Already, the museum has brought generations together, as older fans have passed their love of Ralph Stanley’s music down to their loved ones by listening to the music or going to concerts and festivals.BRO – What does having a museum like this mean to a small town like Clintwood?VS – For a small town, having a state of the art museum for visitors to tour, whether special plans were made to visit or the stop in our beautiful town was spur of the moment, is great. Everyone that enters the doors of the museum is immediately impressed by Dr. Stanley’s vast display of memorabilia, and being able to see his life portrait in videos and listening to his music on interactive screens brings his love of music to life. And the museum offers a walk through the history of Ralph Stanley’s music, along with the music he made with his brother, Carter, in The Stanley Brothers.BRO – What is the one thing you recommend visitors to see when they are in the museum?JS – As you enter the museum, one of the first rooms you see is the church room. In this room is an introduction video which begins with Ralph’s early life and ends with him sitting on the porch of the museum. This will set the tone for the rest of your tour.BRO – When you think of Ralph Stanley, what’s the first song that comes to mind?VS – For me, probably “O, Death” or “Man of Constant Sorrow,” but many of his fans ask for “Pretty Polly” or “Little Maggie.”BRO – I am sure you have a way of noting from where your visitors have come. Any idea of the longest distance traveled by a museum patron to visit?VS – Visitors have come from all over the United States, and from Australia, Canada, Japan, Ireland, England, South Africa, and New Zealand. So many of those fans have such interesting stories on how they became fans of both Ralph Stanley and bluegrass music.Another visit to the Ralph Stanley Museum is definitely on my horizon. If you are interested in learning more about museum, its hours, events, and exhibitions, please visit the website and plan a trip there soon.
