Musicians’ Union Releases Practical GDPR Examples for Members

The Musicians’ Union (MU) have put together some practical examples of how the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) may impact on members.

GDPR came into force on 25 May 2018, changing the way that organisations are allowed to collect, hold and share information about individuals.

The new document sets out three case studies – the gigging musician, the music teacher and the crowd funded musician. It covers the basic issues that these separate examples may face.

Guidance from the MU

Earlier this year, the MU published guidance to the new data protection regulations, specifically advising musicians who teach.

On our GDPR advice page you can find out more about:

  • What GDPR is, and how it may affect you
  • The different data protection laws
  • Using and storing data safely and legally
  • Frequently asked questions about data protection.

Further resources

The TUC ran a webinar with advice on preparing for GDPR, which you can watch on youtube, as a replay on crowdcast, or by downloading the presentation slides as a PDF.

For more information on the regulations, there is an online guide to GDPR on the Information Commissioner Office’s website.
