about art for artists
On the 25th May 2018 - in less than 60 days - The General Data Protection Regulation comes into effect. It affects everyone and every organisation having data transactions with individuals who live/work in the European Union.
This blog post is about resources I've been trying to pull together about GDPR - for artists and art organisations - societies, charities, schools, galleries etc.
This means it INCLUDES:
NEW PAGE Today I'm launching my new resource page about General Data Protection Regulation for Artists and Art Organisations. - which is very much a work in progress. You can find it in the Office Practices section of the website. The art organisations include: art societies, art galleries, art dealers and art schools.
Previously, I've written two long blog posts on Making A Mark:
The NEW PAGE includes links to useful resources not included in the blog post and builds upon what I've previously written. I'm still looking and still finding new resources which might be helpful - but you may have to do a lot of reading.
RECOMMENDATION: Besides the links to the publications and resources produced by the Information Commission (first section), the section I'd suggest people take a look at is that relating to Issues for Art Organisations. It includes a very useful document written by The Arts Society providing guidance to its branch societies.
I'm also hoping to develop a section for "Artists as Sole Traders".
The one thing I have discovered is that more and more information is being published the closer we get to 25th May - and it's likely that a lot more will emerge as issues are tested in the courts thereafter.
Bottom line - this is a live issue for anybody who is creating transactions involving the personal data of anybody living in the EU.

DISCLAIMER: I am NOT an expert on this topic - even if I know more than you! Like you I'm just trying to work my way through the maze of online information about GDPR. You are also not my client and I do not know your individual circumstances - meaning I have no liability to you in any circumstances should you choose to rely on any of the materials on this blog or website - although whatever is published by the ICO should be more authoritative than most!
