The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a comprehensive data protection law established by the European Union (EU) and enforced in all of its member states as of May 25, 2018. It replaces the EU’s 1995 Data Protection Directive, broadening and unifying the provisions for personal data protection to empower individuals with more control over their information. And it applies to organizations that process EU individuals’ personal data, regardless of whether the organization is physically located in the EU. For Sling customers, that’s any organization with one or more employees in the EU.
After the GDPR takes effect on May 25, 2018, companies must maintain full compliance with its terms or face steep fines. In preparation, we’ve updated our processes, systems, and policies to make sure we’re fully compliant.
The GDPR defines “personal data” as “any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’).” It stipulates that such data identifies a person “directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person” (See GDPR, Chapter 1, Article 4-Definitions).
