GDPR Question time: your queries answered

Dealers, auctioneers and collectors ask our experts what the GDPR means for them

Legal eagle: Ian De Freitas, Partner, Farrer & Co

Ian is a litigator at Farrer & Co with over 25 years’ experience, in particular around the areas of IP, technology and data. He is also an expert on data protection compliance and has been helping clients prepare for the changes being brought in by the GDPR in May 2018. Much of Ian’s work has a cross-border element. He has strong connections with clients and independent law firms across the world, particularly in the US and Continental Europe. Last year Ian presented on the GDPR to members of auctioneer trade body SOFAA.

Marketing expert: Charles Ping Chairman, Fuel Data, part of Engine Group plc

Charles has over 30 years’ experience working with data in a marketing context. He was head of CRM at Guardian Media Group, chairman of the Direct Marketing Association and is an industry commissioner at The Direct Marketing Commission. His role at Fuel includes helping clients to succeed in marketing while meeting the GDPR’s requirements.

In ATG No 2327, we introduced the core principles of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which, when it becomes law on May 25, will change the way businesses must handle the personal data of individuals in the EU. These may seem straightforward – essentially, consumers will have more control over how organisations use their data and there is more responsibility on firms to manage data, with bigger fines for misuse.

But what are the day-to-day realities of the GDPR for art market businesses? We asked readers – dealers, auctioneers and collectors – to submit their queries. Here, data protection legal expert, Farrer & Co partner Ian De Freitas, and database marketing specialist Charles Ping, chairman of Fuel Data, answer those questions.
