GDPR

Highlights

The new rules address these concerns by strengthening existing rights and empowering individuals with more control over their personal data. Most notably, these include:

  • Easier access to your data: individuals will have more information on how their data is processed, and this information should be available in a clear and understandable way;
  • a right to data portability: it will be easier to transfer your personal data between service providers;
  • a clarified "right to be forgotten": when you no longer want your data to be processed and provided that there are no legitimate grounds for retaining it, the data will be deleted;
  • the right to know when your data has been hacked: for example, companies and organisations must notify the national supervisory authority of serious data breaches as soon as possible so that users can take appropriate measures.
