General Data Protection Regulation
What is the GDPR?
Commencing on May 25, 2018, a new privacy law called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) took effect in the European Union (EU). It regulates how an organization treats and/or uses the personal data of EU citizens, including organisations located outside of the EU. It will replace the national data protection laws currently in place with a single set of rules, directly enforceable in each EU member state. The GDPR’s focus is the protection, collection and management of personal data, (i.e. data about individuals) and it applies to all businesses who hold or otherwise process personal data (including sole traders) of people in EU Member States.
What does the GDPR regulate?
The GDPR will regulate the processing of personal data for EU individuals including the collection, storage, transfer, or use. Personal data refers to any piece of data that, used alone or with other data, could identify a person. This includes mailing lists, email addresses etc.
How does GDPR change privacy law?
GDPR gives people more rights over how companies collect and use personal data. The act specifically gives people the right to access, correct, delete, and restrict processing of personal data, and lays out strict guidelines about consent for data usage.
