General Data Protection Regulation

Whenever a data subject is about to submit their personal information the data controller has to make sure the data subject has given their consent. Essentially, your customer cannot be forced into consent, or be unaware that they are consenting to processing of their personal data. That allows data subjects to demand a copy of their data in a common format. Data subjects always had a right to request access to their data. On the security side, the GDPR will require many businesses to have a Data Privacy Officer to help oversee their compliance efforts. 

Organisations requiring DPOs include public authorities, organisations whose activities involve the regular and systematic monitoring of data subjects on a large scale, or organisations who process what is currently known as sensitive personal data on a large scale. Since the GDPR is all about transparency and fairness, Controllers and Processors will need to review their Privacy Notices, Privacy Statements and any internal data policies to ensure they meet the requirements under the GDPR. If a Controller engages third party vendors to process the personal data under their control, they will need to ensure their contracts with those Processors are updated to include the new, mandatory Processor provisions set out in Article 28 of the Regulation. The GDPR contains a new requirement that controllers must notify their country’s supervisory authority of a personal data breach within 72 hours of learning of it, unless the data was anonymised or encrypted. In practice this will mean that most data breaches must be reported to the DPC. 

Breaches that are likely to bring harm to an individual – such as identity theft or breach of confidentiality – must also be reported to the individuals concerned. While the current legislation, the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive, governs entities within the EU, the territorial scope of the GDPR is far wider, in that it will also apply to non-EU businesses who market their products to people in the EU or who monitor the behavior of people in the EU. In other words, even if you’re based outside of the EU but you control or process the data of EU citizens, the GDPR will apply to you. The importance of the GDPR’s new provisions is underscored by the new penalties it imposes for violations. Depending on the type of violation in question, controllers and processors who mishandle personal data or otherwise violate data subjects’ rights could incur fines of up to €20 million or 4% of their global annual revenue.

Olark and the GDPR Legislation

On May 25, 2018, the new General Data Protection Legislation will be coming into force in the European Union. While we are not able to answer legal questions regarding how your own organization achieves compliance, we can and will support your compliance efforts by providing information about the data that Olark collects, transmits and stores for your organization. The GDPR is territorial – meaning the GDPR applies to any organization that processes EU personal data, regardless of where the organization may be located. We have worked hard with our legal and engineering teams to ensure to the extent Olark directly collects EU personal data it is in compliance with the GDPR. We are fully compliant with the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss – U.S. 

Privacy Shield Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information from the European Union and Switzerland to the United States. The data subjects are your customers or end users residing in the EU. You are the data controller because you decide the purposes for which you need to collect personal data from data subjects and the means by which you want to collect it. Olark is a data processor because we process data from your data subjects on your behalf and on your instructions. 

Individual Rights: The GDPR expands data subjects’ rights to their personal data. Except as limited by applicable law, EU data subjects have the right to access the personal data a company is processing on them; to restrict the processing; to correct incomplete or inaccurate personal data; to have their personal data deleted; and to object to their data being used for certain purposes. As a data processor, Olark does not and cannot determine the legal basis for processing visitor personal data on behalf of its customers;. Additional context: One of the changes under the GDPR is the expansion of privacy rights for individuals located in the EU. As a data controller, you will need to be ready and able to comply with applicable individual rights requests, such as deleting a customer’s personal data from your records or providing them with a copy of the data you hold. 

You may continue to use transcript data because you have a legal obligation to retain the data, if processing the data is in your website visitors’ legitimate interest, or if your use of transcript data is directly related to performance of a contract or to steps a customer has requested you take prior to entering into a contract. Finally, you may be able to fulfill your GDPR obligations by refraining from certain uses of transcript data.

Most firms will not be GDPR-ready by compliance deadline

With just one month to go until the compliance deadline for the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation, research data shows that many companies will not be ready in time. Start Download. Only 51% of companies polled say they have all the systems in place that will enable them to remove EU citizen data from servers on request, including back-ups, in accordance with Articles 16 and 17 of the GDPR. Worryingly, 21% do not yet have any systems in place to meet these requirements, according to a study published by data security company WinMagic. In many cases, the survey shows that companies lack the systems and processes to ensure compliance with the new legislation, which affects all companies holding and processing EU citizen data. 

Organisations found to be non-compliant could also face a range of other punitive actions from data protection authorities, including compulsory data protection audits, warnings, reprimands, enforcement notices and stop processing orders. Data management delays: A quarter of respondents admitted that systems were only part implemented, and would not allow the automated removal of citizen data from back-ups. Failing to encrypt data: An average of 20% of the companies surveyed lack continuous encryption for personally identifiable information across their cloud and on-premise servers, despite appropriate levels of encryption and anonymisation being a requirement for GDPR compliance. Where companies lack strict security and encryption management for technologies such as virtual machines and hyper-converged infrastructure, uncontrolled data sprawl can be common, leading to silos of hidden data and a fragmentation of governance, which leaves companies non-compliant and at risk of heavy fines. Poor data breach monitoring: When a data breach occurs, the report said speed is the key element in responding to ongoing attacks, but also to controlling the spread and abuse of data by cyber criminals. 

The GDPR requires companies to report data breaches to the relevant data protection authority within 72 hours of discovery, yet 41% of respondents said they could not achieve this today. Many companies lack the tools that will identify whether a breach has ever occurred or the data taken. Commenting on the fast-approaching GDPR compliance deadline, Tamzin Evershed, senior director and global privacy lead at Veritas Technologies, said that in recent months, companies have been striving to gain complete visibility and control of their data – including what information is stored, who owns it, who has access and how it is used. This approach is in line with that advocated by UK information commissioner Elizabeth Denham, who has repeatedly emphasised that the GDPR is about gaining and maintaining consumer trust, which is essential for the development and innovation of business using data.

On May 25, the General Data Protection Regulation will go into effect in the European Union, but its implications will reach far beyond the borders of the 28 member states of the EU.US businesses need to know the regulation, understand how it can impact their business operations so they can protect against the legal consequences and sizable fines for non-compliance. Now more than ever, US companies must be sure that data security, including the data that is shared in communication channels, is secure and compliant. The fundamental principle of the regulation is the right to privacy and protection of EU citizens by giving them right to anonymity in the data that they share with businesses and enterprises. GDPR’s impact on US businessesAny personal data that is sourced from citizens currently residing in the EU must comply with the GDPR. Therefore, businesses that retain such data and/or behavioral information, even if it doesn’t leave the EU will still be subject to GDPR regulations. 

Once the US retailer gets permission to use their email address, the retailer would have to appoint a representative in the EU to be responsible for following GDPR in their collection and processing of that data in the Cloud. GDPR’s impact on internal US communicationsCustomer data, including that of people who fall under the protection of GDPR, is often shared within companies via channels like email, and increasingly on business messengers like Microsoft Teams, Atlassian’s Stride, Slack, and others. Collaboration is the primary selling point for such solutions and teams often share documents using these platforms which can also be connected to other external platforms like Google Docs.If the documents shared contain personal data, those platforms must also comply with GDPR.Going forward, US companies will need to not only get permission to collect and process customer data, but also get permission to make that personal data available to any tools they use internally for collaboration. The exception to the rule is when the chosen internal communication and collaboration tool secures all data with end-to-end encryption as the service provider does not then get access to any customer data. Right to access: Consumers, or data subjects, have the right to confirm if their personal data is being processed and they can ask the data controller for a copy of the personal data, free of charge. 

Right to be forgotten: Data subjects have the right to have their data erased, and they can ask for their data not to be disseminated and potentially have third parties halt processing of their data. Data portability: Data subjects can have their data sent to them or even transmitted to another data controller. GDPR will be the foundation for well-regulated data sourcing, collection and behavioral information of internet residents throughout the world.

General Data Protection Regulation

The General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679) is a regulation by which the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union and the European Commission intend to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union. It also addresses the export of personal data outside the EU. The GDPR aims primarily to give control back to citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU. When the GDPR takes effect, it will replace the data protection directive of 1995. The regulation applies if the data controller or processor or the data subject is based in the EU. 

Furthermore the regulation also applies to organizations based outside the European Union if they collect or process personal data of EU residents. They must include the retention time for personal data and contact information for data controller and data protection officer has to be provided. In order to be able to demonstrate compliance with the GDPR, the data controller should implement measures which meet the principles of data protection by design and data protection by default. Processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data, in particular where the data subject is a child. Where the processing is carried out by a public authority, except for courts or independent judicial authorities when acting in their judicial capacity, or where, in the private sector, processing is carried out by a controller whose core activities consist of processing operations that require regular and systematic monitoring of the data subjects, a person with expert knowledge of data protection law and practices should assist the controller or processor to monitor internal compliance with this Regulation. 

The notice to data subjects is not required if the data controller has implemented appropriate technical and organizational protection measures that render the personal data unintelligible to any person who is not authorized to access it, such as encryption. A Data Controller has to provide, upon request, an overview of the categories of data that are being processed(b as well as a copy of the actual data (Article 15(3. Furthermore the Data Controller has to inform the data subject on details about the processing such as; what the purposes are of the processing(a , with whom the data is shared(c and how it acquired the data(g. Article 17 provides that the data subject has the right to request erasure of personal data related to them on any one of a number of grounds including non-compliance with article 6.1 (lawfulness) that includes a case where the legitimate interests of the controller is overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. Protection against automated decisions in Article 22, brought forward from the Data Protection Directive’s Article 15, has been claimed to provide protection against growing numbers of algorithmic decisions on and offline, including potentially a right to an explanation. 

Therefore education in data protection and privacy legislation, particularly keeping in compliance with new rules as they arise, will be a critical factor for the success of the GDPR. The European Commission and DPAs have to provide sufficient resources and power to enforce the implementation and a unique level of data protection has to be agreed upon by all European DPAs since a different interpretation of the regulation might still lead to different levels of privacy.
