Hi all, last week I spoke to you about General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Here is a brief summary of what it is all about. I will be in touch again about it means for the parish. Pat.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Because of impending requirement to comply with new date protection legislation, we have compiled s synopsis of requirements under the legislation, as we currently understand them. We will continue to monitor the situation as it evolves.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new EU law that comes into effect on 25 May 2018. These new regulations apply to organisations and individuals, including small businesses that process personal date. The Irish Data Protection Commissioner (DPC) has stated that "Every company is now a data company...". Personal data is any information related to an identified individual, including names, addresses and other specific items that identify an individual. Processing of personal data covers many different uses of personal data in either electronic or physical format, including collecting, recording, storing, adapting, using, disclosing and deleting data. Therefore, processing personal data is storing the personal data of members electronically or in hard copy.
There are wide powers to enforce compliance and significant administrative fines for non-compliance and individuals may seek redress from organisations for material and non-material damage suffered because of a breach of the GDPR Data controllers and processors maybe liable for damage caused by a breach of GDPR.
It is now necessary to:
1. Obtain and process the information fairly
2. Keep it only for one or more specified and lawful purposes
3. Process it only in ways compatible with the purposes for which it was given to you initially
4. Data should be safe and secure
5. Data should be accurate and up-to-date
6. Data should be adequate, relevant and not excessive
7. The data should be retained no longer than is necessary for the specified purpose or purposes
8. Give a copy of his/her personal data to any individual, on request.

What does Data Protection Legislation mean to an individual?: The legislation sets out rules about how this information (personal Information) can be obtained, how it can be used and how it is stored. Every person must give their consent for their data to be collected and processed for a specific purpose which must be communicated to them at the time the data is obtained. They must specifically Opt-In and must be allowed to Opt-Out at any time. They must also be given the opportunity to review the consent they have given on a regular basis (i.e Yearly). Data must be kept safe and secure and must be kept accurate and up to date. An Individual can request a copy of all of the personal information held about them (this is called a Subject Access Request) and must be allowed to have all of their data deleted or returned to them, if they so wish.

First Friday Toames
Hi all,
For some time the poor attendance at First Friday Mass in Toames has been a concern of mine. Currently the time for the Mass is 7 pm. It was at 8 pm and I moved it back to 6.30 pm. Attendance has not improved. To my mind for its viability, more than 5 people in regular attendance would
be acceptable. I need suggestions of time and location for the Mass to continue. On the last First Friday, attendance was 1. We already have Mass and Adoration at Johnstown at 10am on a Friday morning which is well attended. I need suggestions of time and maybe a change of venue for First Friday evening Mass. Please drop them in at Parochial House or by email to news@kilmichael.org
Regards, Pat.
