Frequently Asked Questions

What is GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation in EU Law whose goal is to protect EU citizens’ data privacy. It came into effect on 25th May, 2018.

Does the GDPR apply to me?

  • Does your website have Google Analytics in place?
  • Do you embed YouTube videos in your pages and blog posts?
  • Do you have a contact form for visitors to get in touch with you?
  • Do you have Social Media sharing buttons for any of your content?
  • Do you have a WordPress website? Do your plugins comply with GDPR?

If to any of these questions the answer is “yes”, then it does. Please note that these are just a few examples to show how “little” it takes for data privacy to be at risk.

What do I risk by not complying? Do I get fined?

Businesses that do not comply with the GDPR are facing a potential fine of €20M or 4% of your turnover (whichever is greater). Compliance is a crucial for your company and, as such, should be not taken lightly.

Am I a Data Processor or a Data Controller?

Generally speaking, the entity who performs operations on personal data, such as storing, collecting, recording, organising, sharing, erasure, consulting and so on, is a Processor. An entity becomes a Controller too if they also decide what purpose such data processing activities have.

A quick example: your business collects the emails from your customers and stores them using an email management service hosted by a third party. This makes you the Controller and the third party the Processor.

Do I need a Data Protection Officer?

Absolutely, if:

  • you are a public authority or body, except for courts acting in their judicial capacity;
  • your Controller\Processor activities regularly and systematically monitor data subjects on a large scale;
  • your Controller\Processor activities process special categories of data on a large scale, including (but not limited to) political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, genetic and biometric data, data concerning health or data concerning a natural person’s sex life or sexual orientation or personal data relating to criminal convictions and offences.
