The GDPR, the General Data Protection Regulation, has been in operation since May 2017 and enforceable from 25th May 2018. It's a Regulation by which the European Commission strengthened data protection for individuals within the European Union (EU). During the transition period, as the United Kingdom leaves the EU, this legislation still applies. After December 31, 2020 it will be incorporated into the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 2018). Its obligations include minimised collection of personal data, deletion of personal data that is no longer necessary, to restrict access, and to secure data through its entire lifecycle. Consequently, the legislation affects the way the Charity contacts its members and stores personal information about its membership. The equivalent to GDPR in Zambia is covered in sections of the Electronic Communications and Transactions Act (ECTA) 2002.

Exilda’s Angels will comply with the personal data requirements of GDPR and ECTA, and will request trustees, donors, supporters, contributors, beneficiaries and other key contacts to consent to their data being held in accordance with these policies.
