For the last 12 months the V&A’s Data Protection Team has been preparing for this major advance in the laws around personal data.
We have reviewed all of the museum’s activities that involve collecting, holding and processing personal data (for example data from employees, visitors, members and donors), to ensure that what we hold is relevant and is appropriately collected and managed. We have been improving how we document our use of personal data, and updating our policies and procedures – but also the information we provide to you wherever we collect data.
We constantly review and improve information security and strengthen the tools we use to protect personal data – and the privacy of everyone connected to the V&A. We see GDPRs as an opportunity to enhance standards of information management and transparency, and to build stronger relationships with our audiences, stakeholders and staff – now and for the future.
