Conducting Business in Compliance with EU Data Privacy Laws
With the adoption of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the EU’s approach to data privacy and security has expanded in regards to the obligations of companies holding the personal data of EU data subjects and in regards to the companies which will now be subject to the requirements of EU data protection law. APEX LEGAL assists companies in their efforts to comply with these new requirements.
To comply with the new requirements, companies collecting or holding the personal data of EU data subjects will need to review, and likely revise, their internal data practices and privacy policies, their consent procedures and procedures concerning the information provided to employees and customers when personal data is collected. Companies may also need to amend their business agreements to ensure that the agreements properly address each party’s legal obligations regarding the protection and handling of personal data.
