GDPR – the new European law
EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaced the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC on May 25th 2018. It was designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens’ data privacy and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy. The new legislation contains changes in a company's obligations regarding the collection, storage and dissemination of personal data. Hydroscand analyzes continuously the business and implement measures to fulfill the requirements.
