GDPR Q&A

 

What is the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation Legislation)?

GDPR is an EU law that is meant to, in the age of the internet, empower everyone to control their personal data.  Companies and organizations in all industries are required to ask for consent for collection of personal data, especially on their websites and email marketing lists.  They’re also required to store data securely, to delete that data when people request it, and to share the personal data they’ve collected responsibly.

 

Who does GDPR apply to?

GDPR applies to any business that works with European Union consumers.  Even if you’re based in the US or anywhere else in the world, you could still be liable for GDPR requirements.  No matter where your business is headquartered or based, if you’re serving EU clients, you must ensure that your website and data-handling practices are GDPR compliant.

 

What will you need to translate for GDPR?

  • Privacy policy, if your website is multilingual
  • Consent forms
  • Agreements with clients in other countries
  • Forms for doctor’s offices
  • New engagement letters for legal clients
  • Contracts with vendors, suppliers, and clients
  • And more…

 

When does GDPR come into effect?

The European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been in effect since May 25, 2018.  It’s important to note that this law does not just apply to personal data your company or organization has collected since then.  You must also handle any data collected pre-May 2018 in compliance with GDPR requirements.
