The GDPR is a new EU legal framework which will come into operation on 25 May 2018 and introduces additional regulations for all organisations that process (collect, manage and use) personal data.
Members need to be aware of how this affects adding photographs to our Facebook or Meetup Group, as photographs of people are a type of personal data.
