The new European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is on its way. As of 25th of May 2018, GDPR’s increased protections will apply to the collection and use of EU personal data. GDPR will apply to organisations with European operations, regardless of where the company is established or in which country the data is being processed. It raises the bar for data protection, requiring greater transparency, imposing stricter limits on the use of EU personal data and giving individuals more enforceable rights.
Organisations will only be able to use EU personal data that has been collected in compliance with GDPR. If an organisation is relying on an individual’s consent to process the data, that consent must be given freely and voluntarily, and individuals may withdraw their consent and request that their data be modified or deleted.
Preparations for GDPR are well under way here at GHX. We are working hard to continue to protect the security, privacy and availability of your personal data under the new GDPR requirements.
