DATA PROTECTION REGULATION - GDPR
Handling of personal data
On 25 May 2018, the new Data Protection Regulation GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) from the EU entered into force.
In short, it is about an EU law that will strengthen the protection of private individuals when processing personal data.
It replaces the Data Protection Directive of 1995, as well as the current national regulations of all Member States. In Sweden’s case, it is about PUL, the Personal Data Act.
GDPR also imposes new requirements on all companies, authorities and organizations that collect and handle personal data. In simple terms, it can be said that the GDPR concretises the regulations regarding the protection of personal data, and clarifies the responsibility for data that is handled and stored.
It is important that everyone who stores, or otherwise processes, personal data gets to know the basics of the GDPR.
If you want to know more about what GDPR is and is about, there is deeper information at the following links:

We have created a document that applies to you as a customer of Haagtech AB regarding GDPR issues.
