GDPR and freelance writers
7

Estjab · 09/04/2018 08:50

Hi all, I've written a fair bit on the GDPR but applying to my own business is a different matter! Any freelance journalists/writers out there who can tell me what they have done to satisfy their clients? Thanks in advance...

Honestly, absolutely nothing. I don't have my own website though and I'm not storing anything I'd class as personal details.

It's not something any client has asked about either.

For heavens sake don’t read that blog it is nonsense.

Just call the ICO small business helpline.

I thought the blog was pretty good - and aligns pretty much with what i understand the GDPR to mean for freelance writers. So how's it nonsense? it would be very helpful to know.

The ICO won't give specific advice - i've tried.

sorry to be so grumpy. This jumped out.

The blogger has applied things she has learned about data protection law to completely different legal aspects of her business. She's like a patient who is applying her knowledge of how tumours grow to a musculoskeletal problem (not that I've ever done this....Blush)

"Changes to how I will ask clients to accept my terms and conditions

I used to send clients a copy of my terms and conditions with a quotation and said that if the client agrees to the quotation, I take that as acceptance of the terms and conditions. However, under the new GDPR, I believe this acceptance has to be more active, so I will instead ask for explicit confirmation that the client accepts the terms"

Revisiting this - you didn't actually say why that blog is 'nonsense' - if anyone can point out where she's legally incorrect that would be more useful! Though i can see what she says about terms and conditions is not right!!! GDPR is such a minefield.
