As one of the core principles of the GDPR is data minimisation, consider whether the data that you are requesting is important for your needs. Are you asking mandatory questions? Questions should only be mandatory when you have a specific purpose for this data.
Acceptable use: Requiring participants at your sporting event to provide emergency contact details for the sole purpose of their safety.
Not acceptable: Requiring all attendees to provide their date of birth and gender, with no opt-out, for marketing and demographics.
For custom questions which are not important to your needs, set these as optional questions. Also, consider whether you are asking too much information. Do you need to ask for their full date of birth, or will just their age or birth year suffice?
