Legal Developments3rd November 2017
Legal basis and principles of GDPR
On 27 April 2016 Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the
European Parliament and of the Council, General Data Protection Regulation (the “Regulation“ or “GDPR“) was adopted. This Regulation is directly applicable in all Member States and constitutes the legal framework for personal data protection applicable in the whole of the EU. It protects the rights of EU citizens from unauthorized treatment of their details and personal data. In particular, the new legislation strengthens individuals’ rights affected by personal data processing. Individuals may now obtain information regarding which data about them are processed and why, and have a better opportunity to demand that entities administering or processing their personal data comply with the rules, and remedy any defects. The strengthened rights of individuals as data subjects are also evident from the reformulation of tasks and obligations of controllers and processors.
