GDPR Workshop for Tourism Businesses
Tuesday 3rd July 2018
MWT Offices, The Station,Machynlleth, SY20 8TG
Pre Booking is Essential - Only 12 Places Available
1 Attendee Per Business Only.
As requested by members, we're pleased to announce that we have teamed up with Business Wales to provide a GDPR workshop which covers aspects of GDPR which are specific to the tourism industry.
Businesses can attend this course Free of Charge.
We ask that only one attendee attend per business due to the restrictions in numbers and booking is essential.
This will be an all day course with tea & coffee provided with 1 hour for lunch but lunch will not be provided. There are a number of outlets in and around Machynlleth where you can purchase lunch (or bring your own :)
The tourism industry processes large volumes of personal and sensitive data in taking bookings and in its marketing activities, including using direct marketing via email and post, websites using cookies and sharing data in offering excursions and making third party bookings etc. In addition to this, the industry must also comply with GDPR in processing employee and seasonal worker data.
Come and explore how the new GDPR data protection legislation affects your business and marketing activities. Be clear on what you should be doing, including to audit the data you hold: in taking bookings and payments; for direct mail; on websites; in handling employee data.
It is important that you understand your legal basis for processing data; what privacy notices and consent authorisation you need in place; the role of data protection officers; and review any data sharing arrangements.
THE SILVER MOUNTAIN EXPERIENCE, LLYWERNOG, PONTERWYD, ABERYSTWYTH, CEREDIGION, SY23 3AB
At the Silver Mountain Experience there have been very exciting developments recently, in the areas of visitor experience through to the conservation and development of the fascinating heritage here at this unique Silver-Lead Mine, which dates back to over 250 years ago.
Silver Mountain would like to invite MWT members to to one of their local business network sessions on Thursday 7th June or Tuesday 19th June.
The sessions will include two free guided tours, an opportunity to see the surface attractions and developments around the site, and to join us for a cuppa and a chat in the café.
All they ask in return is that you take away some of their leaflets, events flyers and a poster to display in your business.
We very much hope you will be able to come. Spaces are limited.
If you are unable to make any of these dates, feel free to contact them on 01970 890 620 and they can help arrange another time for you to come for a complimentary visit!
