As part of our communications strategy, we started publishing a monthly newsletter in October 2018. As of May 2021 we are also offering a quarterly newsletter specifically about Project Bijou.

We offer two newsletters you can sign-up to via the form below: 

  1. ODPA newsletter (monthly) 
    Sign up to this option to receive a monthly update covering all ODPA activities. 
  2. Project Bijou newsletter (quarterly) 
    Sign up to this option to receive a quarterly update about Project Bijou specifically. 

Our monthly newsletter is a key channel for us to fulfil our commitment to transparency around publishing regular information and statistics related to our activities and governance.

More broadly, our communications activity seeks to:

  • Promote public awareness of risks, rules, safeguards and rights in relation to processing of personal information, especially in relation to children.
  • Promote Guernsey’s position as a jurisdiction with excellent and innovative data protection standards which retains its ‘adequacy’ recognition from the EU
  • Promote awareness of the legal duties placed on organisations who are controlling or processing personal information.
  • Protect the ODPA / Data Protection Authority’s reputation by communicating in-line with our mission, vision and values.
