Further to the information we circulated in the Charter Standard Clubs
e-newsletter on Friday 2nd February, there is a new data protection law, the
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into force on 25 May this
year. The GDPR will replace the Data Protection Act 1998 in its entirety and
will, from 25 May 2018, regulate the processing of personal data in the UK.
The FA recognises that clubs collect, hold and process personal data – this
email is therefore intended to give you further information about the GDPR,
what it is, the main concepts and how the changes might impact on your club.
We have set out a series of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) in the
attached which provide further information and summarise the work which The
FA is undertaking in this area.
In summary, where your club relies on an FA system, for example Whole Game
System (WGS) or FullTime, The FA will ensure that FA systems meet
requirements on information security and we will also update the associated
online terms and privacy notices in accordance with the GDPR. In addition,
The FA will make sure that contracts are in place with any relevant software
providers and with other footballing stakeholders as needed under the
Where your club uses non-FA systems or processes personal data in hard copy
format, these will not be reviewed by The FA, and compliance activities will
need to be undertaken by your club in respect of such systems and/or
processing. Please see FAQ9 for further information on the support that is
available for any compliance activities that you may need to carry out.
