GDPR came into force on 25 May 2018, bringing about a number of significant changes regarding the use of personal data, including:

  • Greater transparency requirements for privacy notices.
  • New and enhanced rights for individuals.
  • Detailed requirements for contracting with processors.
  • New security rules and breach reporting obligations.
  • Obligations that arise depending on the legal basis for processing personal data.
  • A revamped regime for enforcement, remedies and liability.
