What is GDPR?
GDPR is a new set of rules designed to give EU citizens more control over their personal data. It aims to simplify the regulatory environment for business so both citizens and businesses in the European Union can fully benefit from the digital economy.
GDPR was approved by the European Parliament in April 2016 and the official texts and regulation of the directive were published in all of the official languages of the EU on May 2016. The legislation came into force across the European Union on 25 May 2018.
What does GDPR mean for consumers/citizens?
Consumers are guaranteed an easier access to their own personal data in terms of how it is processed, with organisations required to detail how they use customer information in a clear and understandable way. You will also be given the right to opt-out if you wish to withdraw your consent
GDPR also brings a clarified ‘right to be forgotten’ process, which provides additional rights and freedoms to people who no longer want their personal data processed to have it deleted, providing there’s no grounds for retaining it.
What is personal data? What personal data does IES retain from its webpage and how is this data obtained?
