GDPR - Data held from event attendees

Hello,

We hold several events as a business and therefore have data (email addresses etc) of our attendees. We only use this data for informing them about the event they are attending and any similar events.

How are people handling this with the new GDPR rules?

Any tips would be great!

Hi Amy, thanks for posting this. It’s on all of our ‘to do’ lists. For starters I would recommend checking out this blog by @Belinda_Booker https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/blog/data-protection-for-event-organisers-ds00/

If they didn’t specifically opt in to your mailing list for hearing about future events you’ll need to get that permission, I believe.
