The GDPR covers the processing of personal data and replace the laws in each country covering how personal data is processed and handled. The GDPR introduces some changes in the definitions of what constitutes personal data, and this is something that we keep a close eye at, to make sure that we are compliant with the new regulation.

What is GDPR?

The GDPR is the new data protection regime that will replace the current regulation and substantially harmonize data compliance requirements across the EU. The GDPR covers the processing of personal data, which may include, for example, IP address, mobile device identifiers, location data, and any other personal information related to an identifiable natural person.

What about the EU ePrivacy Regulation?

The European Commission (EC) has made a proposal for a new ePrivacy law, this proposal will not take effect in 2018. It is expected to be adopted in the later part of 2019. The purpose is to regulate how to handle the processing of electronic communications data as well as the use of cookies and other similar technologies. This proposal is not just about cookies as it covers all technologies used in the processing of data, whether personal or not. Also – at this stage – this is a proposal and one that has to go through the Brussels legislative process and until then we won’t know exactly what it will state.
