GDPR: Important Changes to Data Protection Law
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into force on the 25th May 2018, replacing the existing data protection framework under the EU Data Protection Directive.
As a regulation, it will have ‘direct effect’, addressing any organization involved in data processing of any sort and imposing strict requirements on the gathering, storage, use and deletion of personal data. The GDPR emphasises transparency, security and accountability by data controllers and processors, while at the same time standardising and strengthening the right of European citizens to data privacy. Hanna Moore + Curley welcomes the new Regulation and has prepared fully to comply with its requirements.
We are therefore communicating over the coming weeks with all our newsletter and marketing contacts to remind you of your enhanced rights under GDPR and to ensure that we have your express permission to continue to recieve our useful newsletters.
