GDPR Solicitors

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Solicitors

 

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – Are you compliant?

The GDPR came into force on 25 May 2018, replacing all national data protection laws across Europe, including the 1998 Data Protection Act.

GDPR therefore affects every business processing personal data in Europe, whether an EU member, or an organisation that provides goods and services within the continent.

What are the Penalties?

Non compliance under this new legislation brings significant fines for businesses which can range from €10 million (or 2% of annual global turnover) to €20 million (or 4% of annual global turnover), depending upon the breach.

What Do I Need to Do?

If you and your business are not already compliant now, we strongly recommend you start to assess, plan and implement the changes to procedures and systems that are required.

Farleys’ Commercial team can help you meet your GDPR obligations,  including advice on the following:

  • Data protection audit
  • Providing new and updated policies to comply with GDPR
  • Review of existing terms and conditions/retainers with customers, clients and suppliers
  • Advice on and preparation of privacy notices
  • Advising on changes to be implemented to comply with GDPR
