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.
