GDPR Support for Clubs
General Information Information relating to Data Protection and GDPR is available on the Data Protection Commissioner’s website http://www.dataprotection.ie. Additional information and how data protection specifically impacts on the GAA and supporting templates, forms and process documentation is available on the GAA website http://www.gaa.ie/ dataprotection.
Queries and Support Queries regarding Data Protection can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
An online module to train club administrators, registrars, club executive committee and members is available at learning.gaa.ie/courses/dataprotection
All GAA members and Club Officials are encouraged to review the content to familiarise themselves with the requirements of GDPR.
A number of Data Protection seminars have taken place in Croke Park and in each Province over the last few months. Further seminars will be organised over the coming months and Clubs will be notified in advance on how to attend.
IT Systems Enhancements have been developed to facilitate compliance with GDPR using technology. This includes a GAA App which will allow GAA Club members to register their details on-line, thus making management of consent easier for clubs and reducing the amount of paper records.
Additionally, the functionality available with the Microsoft Office 365 suite of products (available to those with @gaa.ie email addresses) will assist in managing personal information in a secure and controlled manner. Further guidance on the processes that should be used is available in the “GDPR for GAA Clubs” document on this page and within the Microsoft OneDrive of all administrators. This content can be viewed by administrators by logging on to OneDrive with their @gaa.ie email address and selecting the following menu option: OneDrive> Shared> Shared With Me > GDPR Repository.
