The issue of personal data protection is particularly relevant, as there is practically no business left that does not handle the processing of personal data. Any questionnaires, tests, or even simple electronic forms that just require a user to fill in tick boxes – are considered the processing of personal data. Every day, the legislation on the personal data protection is becoming more and more regulated, personal data – more protected, and the responsibility for violating the data processing rules – more severe.
To enhance personal data protection the General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter – GDPR), approved by the Parliament of the European Union will be in effect as of May 25, 2018. The GDPR is the new, more stringent rules for handling personal data. GDPR will be mandatory not only for companies located in the EU territory but also for foreign enterprises that sell goods or provide services to EU residents or process, store and transmit data of such individuals.
Thus, to act in compliance with the GDPR as well as with Ukrainian legislation on protection of personal data, it is necessary for businesses to get their documents, procedures and policies in line with the new rules.
