Attendance of the Conservative party conference this year required consent for the attendee’s personal data to be shared with a third party, namely the company that developed the Conservative Party Conference 2018 event app.
It has been published that “The principles of, and rules on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of their personal data should, whatever their nationality or residence, respect their fundamental rights and freedoms, in particular their right to the protection of personal data.”
Its reported that many guests appeared to have no option but to agree to “utilise” their data SO it would appear that the political conference is at odds with recently introduced legislation!!
Given the current state of play with BREXIT I’m sure this will further fuel the tensions given this month’s impending deadline.
