Apra Australia is excited to offer our first collaboration with the Fundraising Institute Australia, with a presentation from CEO, Katherine Raskob.
Best practice collection, management and use of data in fundraising activity is critical in order to meet community and donor expectations.
While Australia’s privacy principles are stringent, they don’t go as far as the 2018 GDPR regulations in the European Union. There, consent must be freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous. And it must be expressed by a clear affirmative action. That means that generally no pre-ticked boxes, silence or inactivity is allowed. It must also easy be to withdraw consent.
It’s important to review the way in which consent is obtained for best practice and also in advance of potentially stricter legislation around the issue of consent which likely to land in Australia in the coming year or two. Therefore, in fundraising, we ensure our data is collected and managed and how we can further our own data standards in preparation.
Join Katherine to discuss issues around data privacy and ethics in data in fundraising including as they relate to the FIA Code.
Katherine is CEO of Fundraising Institute Australia, the largest representative body for the $10.5 billion charitable fundraising sector.
