On 25th May, an update to the 1993 Data Protection Act will come into force. This is known as the GDPR. You have probably heard of it as most of the websites, apps and services that we all use on a day-to-day basis are updating their privacy policies and sending out notices like this one.
COPE collects the personal details of people in association with a journal or publisher becoming a member journal of COPE. We need to collect personal data to allow us to carry out our duties to your members and to allow us to process and maintain membership.
We are busy making the necessary changes to our site and an update will be posted with the June issue of COPE Digest.
If you have any questions or concerns about the changes brought about by the GDPR or how COPE handles your personal data, you may send an email to the COPE Web Manager, Dom Mitchell.
