The New General Data Protection Regulations 2018

Are you currently seeing an increased volume of privacy notifications when you visit a website or online store? Does your web browser also send you more and more notifications regarding important changes and do you get asked to constantly confirm that you have read the privacy policy? If you do not know why Europe is in a hurry, here is the answer. From May 25, 2018, the new EU data protection regulations will be implemented across Europe. This brings very important changes for both individuals and companies. Since the new privacy policy will replace the Federal Data Protection Act and the EU Data Protection Directive (Directive 95/46 / EC), it is of vital importance for all HR specialists to understand the changes brought by these new regulations. 

What will be different with the new GDPR?

Essentially, this regulation serves as the legal basis for data processing, the rights of data subjects, and regulates the obligations of those responsible. The aim behind it is the protection of the fundamental rights of natural persons and in particular, their right to the protection of their personal data (subject matter and objectives: Article 1, paragraph 2) and the free movement of personal data. (Purpose and objectives: Article 1, paragraph 3)

Article 1 (2): This Regulation protects the fundamental rights and freedoms of natural persons and in particular, their right to the protection of personal data.

Article 1 (3): The free movement of personal data in the European Union shall not be restricted or prohibited for reasons of the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data.

Speexx is GDPR compliant

As a German company, Speexx is, of course, obliged to follow these guidelines – like any other European company.

Therefore, we are also very proud that Speexx is already ahead of the game in terms of being 100% compliant with these regulations.

Would you like to know more about GDPR?

The new General Data Protection Regulations is a very dry and complicated topic. To make it easier to understand and accessible to all and, above all, to highlight the impact it has on human resources, we decided to hold a short, but informative webinar. However, this webinar should not give you a legally binding statement as to whether your company is compliant with data protection laws and acts. Our Speexx expert will explain the topic of the EU data protection basic regulations for human resources in a simple and accessible manner. Register now for the EU GDPR Expert Webinar.
