Join us Monday 3 September for a FREE WORKSHOP with ORG legal consultant Alex Haydock about two tech projects by Open Rights Group and Projects by IF.

Data Rights Finder is a new service designed to help you take advantage of the data rights gained from the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). It cuts through the mind numbing jargon in leading company privacy policies so you don’t have to. Want quick, clear answers about how a company stores your data, or whether they share it with third parties? Need to know exactly who to contact to make a subject access request? Data Rights Finder has answers.

Blocked! allows you to easily check if your own (or any) website is being mistakenly blocked by default filters on major UK Internet Service Provider (ISP) broadband and mobile networks. If you identify any wrongful blocks (there are a shocking amount of these), Blocked! lets you submit an unblocking request with just a couple clicks. You’ll learn how to check local websites and help document and expose the damage done by algorithmic filters that rampantly overblock and damage free speech.

Laptops are recommended but not necessary.

Before the workshop starts there’ll be a short briefing on the September 12 vote in the European Parliament, its importance and the need to contact MEPs urgently about it. Jamie and Rowena will then talk briefly about making ORG known to students at the start of the academic year via Freshers’ Fairs, etc.

All are welcome to this FREE event. Please join us!
