WHAT IS GDPR?
The GDPR was adopted by the EU Parliament to:
Create consistency within all the member states of the EU as to the rules regarding data protection, implementation of the law, and how the rules are enforced.
Modernise the principles laid out in the 1995 Data Protection Directive (Directive 95/46/EC), which was written before the advent of social media, 'smart' mobile devices that now can access things like cameras and geo-location information, and the ubiquity of online services and communications.
Reinforce the rights of individuals to control and protect their personal data.
Strengthen the EU internal market, ensuring stronger enforcement of the rules, streamlining international transfers of personal data and setting global data protection standards.
GDPR defines personal data broadly as: any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person ('data subject'); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
