New EU Data Protection legislation
« on: June 01, 2017, 02:42:18 pm »
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and was finally approved by the EU Parliament on 14 April 2016. The Enforcement date is 25 May 2018.

It tightens the restrictions on holding personal data and increases the penalties for breaches.

If you work with EU countries then you MUST conform to it even after Brexit.

The most notable feature is that opting-out is now a requirement. If you want to receive further information or join a mailing list then you must actually opt-in.
