Crowell & Moring LLP is pleased to offer you a guide to help you understand the impacts of the European General Data Protection Regulation. This regulation will apply from May 2018 and will not only affect companies that are established in Europe, but also businesses that offer goods or services to individuals in Europe or monitor the behavior of those individuals.

The protection of individuals in relation to the processing of their personal data is a European fundamental right laid down in the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union and the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union. Businesses that want to process personal data of EU residents must therefore respect strict rules and conditions.

These rules and conditions are now predominantly laid down in the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The GDPR replaces the EU’s 20-years-old Data Protection Directive (95/46/EC) and the 28 national laws of the EU Member States that implemented this Directive.

The aim of the GDPR is to provide a uniform law that strengthens the rights of individuals with regard to the processing of their personal data while at the same time facilitating the free flow of data in the digital single market and reducing the administrative burden for businesses.

This guide aims to provide businesses worldwide with a useful tool to further their understanding of the key aspects of the GDPR. It is not, and nor is it intended to be, exhaustive. Please see it as a first step on your path to compliance and feel free to contact us so that we can help you build up your overall compliance strategy taking into account your particular circumstances.
