What you need to know to get in shape now

GDPR comes into law on May 25th 2018. That may seem like a long way off, but to minimise any negative impact to your organisation from that date, you need to start getting ready to be compliant now.

Blackbaud Customers: Collecting Consent User Guide

GDPR will require non-profit organisations who rely on consent as a basis for processing personal information to make certain that data subjects affirmatively opt-in to the processing of their data by you. Further, GDPR will require that organisations be able to demonstrate they have collected such consent. Whilst GDPR doesn’t come into law until May 2018, savvy non-profits are beginning to collect opt-in consent right now.
To help you do this, we have consulted closely with a wide range of customers as well as our Blackbaud legal counsel, and have produced a single User Guide that covers managing consent across the total suite of Blackbaud solutions. This means no matter which ones you use, you have clear, step-by-step instructions that will help you to collect consent, record consent, and then effectively use that consent to determine what processing activities may be taken with respect to each of your supporters.
