News: Data Protection Seminar

Posted on 21st April 2016

Free seminar: Be Prepared: major changes to Data Protection are on the horizon

In the next 2 years, any personal data that you collect, process and retain will be subject to new legislation.  The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will place greater compliance obligations on businesses and give individuals more rights.  But more importantly, if you fail to comply you could be liable for fines of up to 4% of your company’s global turnover!

Find out more at this free seminar by BHBPA member law firm, RB:
Date:     28 April
Time:    9-10am with coffee and bacon rolls from 8.30am
Venue: Rawlison Butler LLP, Griffin House, 135 High Street, Crawley, RH10 1DQ

Think this will not apply to your business? – it will.
Think you don’t need to worry about it now? – you do.

For example: if you

  • keep personal data about customers and potential customers
  • have a website that collects personal data (eg via an enquiry form or subscribing to newsletters)
  • have companies based outside the EU that offer services to people in the EU
  • act as a data processor

Changes coming under the GDPR could affect how you collect, process and retain personal data – relying on consent may not be an option.  The aim of this free seminar is to give you a practical view of the fundamentals of the GDPR which are due to be adopted in Spring 2016.

Testimonials

"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"

Bruce Millington, Manager
(Sutton Winson Ltd)

"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.

It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"

Susan Fleet, Managing Director
(Lea Graham Associates)

"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."

Wendy Agate, Community Fund Raising Manager
(St Peter & St James Hospice)

"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
