Advice on all aspects of privacy law
The use of personal data is governed by strict privacy legislation. Currently, the Personal Data Protection Act still applies. On 25 May 2018, this Act will be replaced by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). With effect from that date, the same privacy legislation will apply throughout Europe. The GDPR strengthens and expands the privacy rights of the persons to whom they apply. More obligations will be imposed on enterprises and governments. In addition, the privacy controllers will have more power to take action against those who breach the rules.
The GDPR will have a great impact on enterprises and governments which process personal data. Enterprises and governments must therefore take action to ensure that on 25 May 2018, they will be compliant with this Regulation. The sanctions for acting in violation of the provisions of the GDPR can be sizeable.
