After adoption of the GDPR data protection law in the EU, businesses are still scrambling to study out and comply with all the rules of the new law.
The GDPR law came into force on 25th of May, 2018.
What is GDPR?
This new legislation is unique in it's reach: every business — even those outside of the EU — is required to follow the law, if that business is processing and/or controlling the data of EU citizens. Failure to adhere to the new law will result in heavy fines.
GDPR = General Data Protection Regulation
The main purpose for introducing the GDPR is to protect individuals against intrusive practices (work methods including invasion of privacy and imposition of goods or services). This includes both the information targeted at the individual and the information collected from them.
In essence, the GDPR guarantees the right of every EU individual to:
know how their information is processed,
see that it is correct,
be sure that it is modified or deleted on their request,
and much more.
Protection of the individual data is also emphasized, as security breaches and data leaks are treated much more seriously now.
Generally, the new law will introduce a more transparent environment for the relationship between a customer and a business. You can learn all about GDPR here.
