GDPR and Cycling Ireland.

As you are probably all aware by now the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into force on the 25th May 2018, replacing the existing data protection framework under the EU Data Protection Directive.

This will impact all organisations, including sporting bodies like Cycling Ireland. We have put together a comprehensive FAQ section outlining the main queries you may have, and including our updated privacy policy. If there is anything missing that you would like to see included, please EMAIL US with your queries.

Note that Club Officials, Event Organisers and Commission Officials will have more specific queries for us, and we will be circulating updated forms and more comprehensive guidance to them shortly.

You will receive an "opt in" email from us before Friday evening, so you can register your intent to stay with us there - or just fill in THIS FORM now.
