Data protection specialists
Do you know why you should have the support of data protection lawyers? A correct data protection policy means generating greater trust in clients. Your privacy is protected by preventing your personal data from being disclosed and used for purposes other than those authorized by the users. In this way, the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) are applied. The lack of knowledge on the part of many companies and the lack of advice from specialist data protection lawyers means that they risk being seriously sanctioned with very high fines.
The GDPR was approved on 25 May 2016 and its effective application began on 25 May 2018. In other words, companies have had a two-year adaptation period until the authorities have begun to apply sanctions in accordance with this new regulation.
The GDPR provides for infringements that can be categorized as minor, serious and very serious. Similarly, the national regulations of each Member State also reflect this categorization and provide for a modulation of the penalties to be applied taking into account the specific case. Sanctions can be imposed up to 20 million Euros or 4% of the annual turnover of the group of companies to which the sanctioned company belongs.
In fact, there are numerous sanctions imposed so far by the national control authorities of the various Member States of the European Union. For issues such as the basis of legitimacy for the processing of user data, the time of conservation of user data, access to data illegally, etc.
