Concerned About the Upcoming Data Protection Changes?

Advice for Musicians’ Union (MU) members who are concerned about GDPR and how it will affect them.

We are aware that Musicians’ Union (MU) members may be concerned about the effects of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) which will come into force on 25 May 2018.

GDPR will change the way that organisations are allowed to collect, hold and share information about individuals, amongst other things. It will be enforced across all EU member states, and affects business of every size.

Guidance from the MU

The MU recently produced a guide to the new data protection regulations, specifically advising musicians who teach.

You can read the advice on the MU website, and find out more about:

  • What GDPR is, and how it may affect you
  • The different data protection laws
  • Using and storing data safely and legally
  • Frequently asked questions about data protection.

Further resources

The TUC ran a webinar with advice on preparing for GDPR, which streamed on 21 March 2018.

If you missed it, you can still watch the recording on youtube, watch a replay on crowdcast, or download the presentation slides as a PDF.

For more information on the regulations, there is an online guide to GDPR on the Information Commissioner Office’s website.
