Frequently Asked Questions About GDPR

The General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR is a European-wide data privacy law that replaces the Data Protection Act 1998 in the UK. It places greater obligations on how organisations handle personal data and contains 99 articles detailing those requirements. It came into effect on 25 May 2018 and applies to all companies that offer goods or services to citizens in the EU.

The GDPR applies to “data controllers” which are any private or public bodies that process the personal data of individuals called “data subjects” residing in the EU.

Yes. The GDPR also applies to organisations outside the EU such as the US that offer goods or services to individuals in the EU.

The GDPR protects “data subjects” whose personal data are processed by a data controller established in an EU Member State at the time of data processing or whose data are processed by an off-shore controller offering goods and services or tracking their online behavior, provided that such data subjects are physically present in the EU at the time of that processing activity.

A data controller must inform the data subject of the following:

  • The purpose for processing personal data.
  • The legal basis for processing personal data
  • The categories of personal data that will be collected and processed.
  • Who the recipients of their personal data are.
  • The contact details of those processing their data.
  • If the personal data will be transferred to a third country.
  • The period that the personal data will be stored.
  • The existence of automated decision-making.
  • All of the data subject’s rights defined by the GDPR.

Data Subjects have the right to:

  • Withdraw consent of processing their data for marketing purposes
  • Access their personal data
  • Erasure of their person data within certain scenarios.

The GDPR requires data controllers and processors to implement technical and organizational measures (TOMs) to ensure the reasonable safety of their data processing operations. The GDPR adopts a risk-based approach to determine what level of technical and organizational measures are required in each case. Relevant factors include the nature and volume of the data processing activities, criticality of the data processed and the risks associated with the specific processing operations.

The GDPR defines information that is protected as “personal data”, which is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person, including:

  • Names
  • Identification numbers
  • Location data
  • Online identifiers
  • One or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of a natural person.

The GDPR does govern certain types of vendor relationships. In addition to the data controller, the GDPR recognizes the role of the “data processor” as a party that processes personal data on behalf and at the direction of a controller. In their processing activities, data processors must strictly abide by the instructions of the data controller. The GDPR establishes minimum requirements for the contract that a data controller must enter into with a data processor.

Co-controllers and “third parties” are parties other than the original data controller or its processors who may lawfully become engaged in the processing or personal data. In addition, co-controllers who jointly define the means and purposes of a processing activity must allocate their responsibilities in a written agreement.

A controller determines the purposes and means of processing personal data. A processor is responsible for processing personal data on behalf of a controller.

The GDPR calls for the mandatory appointment of a Data Protection Officer or DPO. He or she is responsible for overseeing an organisation’s data protection strategy and implementation of the GPDR requirements. The DPO is the main point of contact with the relevant regional data supervisory authorities.

A supervisory authority can impose a fine of up to 20 million Euros or 4% annual turnover, as well as issue warnings or reprimands.
