We’ve had a couple of approaches from Companies wanting to complete on-line surveys using their existing database before GDPR comes into force.
Providing the database meets current UK’s Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) rules you can still us it for survey purposes - so it’s worth considering if you want to gain some valuable insight from your existing databases before the May deadline.
There is no doubt the focus on GDPR is hoting up and the new obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will affect every company that collects or processes data of EU citizens.
The good news is that the GDPR will unify data protection and ease the flow of personal data across the EU when it comes into force in May 2018, superseding national data protection laws like the DPA and will apply to every organisation that does business with EU residents.
The Regulation will come into effect in EU member states on May 25, 2018 and introduces a number of key changes for organisations – and the change from DPA compliance to GDPR compliance is a complex one.
