GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation. It’s the core of Europe’s digital privacy legislation. This new EU framework applies to organisations in all member-states and has implications for businesses and individuals across Europe, and beyond.
The digital future can only be built on trust. With solid common standards for data protection, people can be sure they are in control of their personal information.
Under the terms of GDPR, not only do organizations have to ensure that personal data is gathered legally and under strict conditions, but those who collect and manage it are obliged to protect it from misuse and exploitation, as well as to respect the rights of data owners – or face penalties for not doing so.
GDPR applies to any organization operating within the EU, as well as any organizations outside of the EU which offer goods or services to customers or businesses in the EU. That ultimately means that almost every major corporation in the world needs a GDPR compliance strategy. This website is GDPR compliant.
What is personal data under the GDPR?
The types of data considered personal under the existing legislation include name, address, and photos. GDPR extends the definition of personal data so that something like an IP address can be personal data. It also includes sensitive personal data such as genetic data and biometric data which could be processed to uniquely identify an individual.
