As many of you may know, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is set to replace the Data Protection Directive on 25th May 2018. The GDPR is designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe.
As a result of GDPR, Essex Hockey has been advised by our system providers, of changes that need to be made to ensure our website and systems are fully compliant with this new law.
Over the coming weeks and months, and before the 25th May deadline, a number of changes will take place to both the Essex Hockey Website, Essex Umpiring Association's System and Essex Women's League System. Some of these changes are background changes users will not notice, but others will have an impact on how you interact with the systems.
The introduction of GDPR will also have an affect on clubs affiliated to Essex Hockey. England Hockey have provided guidance for clubs, which can be seen by clicking here
