(thread) Do you want to take control of your online presence? Check out what the #GDPR offers! #GDPRexplained gdprexplained.eu
The #GDPR is the new EU regulation that protects you from having your personal data abused by private businesses, state administrations and other organisations. #GDPRexplained gdprexplained.eu
Personal data is any information that can be linked to an identifiable individual. It can be very broad since linking can be done by connecting pieces of information you leave behind in many different (online & offline) places. gdprexplained.eu #GDPRexplained
In practice, the #GDPR protects people, not data. Anyone living in the EU can benefit from more online protection from now on. gdprexplained.eu #GDPRexplained
What’s new with #GDPR? 1) All EU countries will now need to apply the same one law. 2) You can move your data from one service to another. 3) Online services and other companies can now receive huge fines for a breach of your privacy. gdprexplained.eu #GDPRexplained
The EU and its Member States are responsible for applying #GDPR. Contact your country's Data Protection Authority (DPA) whenever you feel that you data is being exploited. edpb.europa.eu/about-edpb/boa… #GDPRexplained
Who needs to apply the law? Any organisation using the personal data of individuals living within the EU has to protect your data according to #GDPR - no matter where that company/organisation is based. gdprexplained.eu #GDPRexplained
