After four years of preparation and debate the GDPR was finally approved by the EU Parliament on 14 April 2016. It will enter in force 20 days after its publication in the EU Official Journal and will be directly application in all members states two years after this date. Enforcement date: 25 May 2018 – at which time those organizations in non-compliance will face heavy fines. The EU General Data Protection Regulation 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. The key articles of the GDPR, as well as information on its business impact, can be found throughout this site.

A major focus of GDPR is on conditions of consent which have been strengthened. So companies will not be able to use vague or confusing statements to get you to agree to give them data. Firms won’t be able to bundle consent for different things together either. Another rule will make it mandatory for companies to notify their data protection authority about a data breach within 72 hours of first becoming aware of it. When it comes to user data, consumers will have more control. 

You will be able to access the personal data being stored by companies and find out where and for what purpose it is being used. This means you can ask whoever is controlling your data to erase it and potentially stop third parties processing it too. Another provision of GDPR allows people to take their data and transfer it to a different service provider.

DigitalOcean: Cloud computing designed for developers

Passed in 2016, the new General Data Protection Regulation is the most significant legislative change in European data protection laws since the EU Data Protection Directive, introduced in 1995. The GDPR, which becomes enforceable on May 25, 2018, seeks to strengthen the security and protection of personal data in the EU and serve as a single piece of legislation for all of the EU. It will replace the EU Data Protection Directive and all the local laws relating to it. We support the GDPR and will ensure all DigitalOcean services comply with its provisions by May 25, 2018. Not only is the GDPR an important step in protecting the fundamental right of privacy for European citizens, it also raises the bar for data protection, security and compliance in the industry.

Achieving GDPR Compliance shouldn’t feel like a struggle. This is a basic checklist you can use to harden your GDPR compliancy. If your organisation is determining the purpose of the storage or processing of personal information, it is considered a controller. If your organisation stores or processes personal data on behalf of another organisation, it is considered a processor. It is possible for your organisation to have both roles. 

Use the filter below to view only the relevant checklist items for your organisation. This list is far from a legal exhaustive document, it merely tries to help you overcome the struggle. Select your organisation’s role:Data Controller: I determine why data is processed. Data Processor: I store or process data for someone else.

Salesforce’s GDPR Commitment: Our Guide for the Path Ahead

The protection of our customers’ data is paramount. The General Data Protection Regulation is a comprehensive European privacy law that takes effect on May 25, 2018. Salesforce welcomes this law as an important step forward in streamlining data protection requirements across the European Union and as an opportunity for Salesforce to deepen our commitment to data protection. We are committed to our customers’ success, including compliance with the GDPR. Similar to existing privacy laws, compliance with the GDPR requires a partnership between Salesforce and our customers in their use of our services. Salesforce will comply with the GDPR in the delivery of our service to our customers. We are also dedicated to helping our customers comply with the GDPR. We have closely analyzed the requirements of the GDPR, and are working to make enhancements to our products, contracts and documentation to support compliance with the GDPR. Preparing our Customers for the GDPR. Today we are announcing several resources to help our customers prepare for the GDPR:. GDPR Resource Website: We have created a GDPR resource website. In the coming weeks we will be releasing several white papers explaining how customers can comply with key GDPR principles in using our services. New Trailhead Module: We have launched a Trailhead module titled “EU Privacy Law Basics,” which provides a detailed overview of the key principles of the GDPR as well as suggested actions for organizations. We hope our customers will take advantage of this free resource and use it to educate their own employees about the GDPR. Contractual Addendum: We are also releasing an updated data processing addendum that contains revised or additional provisions to assist our customers with their compliance with the GDPR. Our Ongoing Commitment to Data Protection. These resources supplement Salesforce’s robust privacy and security program that meets the highest standards in the industry. In October 2015, within hours of the European Court of Justice invalidating the EU-U.S. Safe Harbor program, we offered all of our customers a data processing addendum that allowed them to continue to transfer data to Salesforce without interruption. In November 2015, we became the first top-10 software company to achieve approval for binding corporate rules for processors from European data protection authorities. In August 2016, we became one of the first companies to certify compliance with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework. Our Trust and Compliance documentation provides more information about our privacy and security certifications and controls. We look forward to working with our customers’ GDPR compliance efforts.
