Protecting Personal Data
Personal data is any information relating to an individual’s private, professional or public life. This information can range from a name, a photo, or an email address to bank details, medical data, or a computer's IP address. The collection and storage of personal information are essential in today’s digital age, since myriad businesses and organizations use the data continuously in diverse ways.
Under European Union law - the GDPR - personal data can be gathered legally only under strict conditions and for legitimate purposes. Furthermore, businesses and organizations that collect and manage the information must protect it from misuse while respecting data owners’ rights, which are guaranteed by EU law.
Every day, EU businesses, public authorities and individuals transfer vast amounts of personal data across the borders of the union’s 28 member countries. EU rules have been adopted to ensure that personal data enjoys a high standard of protection within the union’s boundaries.
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and was designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens data privacy and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy.
