Thread: Forthcoming EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) - how does it affect us?

    Default Forthcoming EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) - how does it affect us?

    The reason I'm asking is how long should we keep emails and payment details for sales?

    | Your data rights


    The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a tough regulation regime for companies that gather personal data, introduced by the EU in April 2016. Enforcement begins 25 May 2018.
    The GDPR legislates eight data rights for individuals:

    1. Right to be informed – You must be clearly informed when your data is collected and the purpose for which it is intended.
    2. Right of access – You must be allowed to view the data companies have gathered on you.
    3. Right to rectification – You have the right to correct erroneous information about yourself in a company’s data records.
    4. Right of erasure – Also known as the “right to be forgotten”. You have the right to request the deletion of personal data held on you, although this right is not absolute.
    5. Right to restrict processing – You can request the suppression of your personal data file, or restrict its processing.
    6. Right to data portability – You have the right to take the data a company has collected on you and share it elsewhere, eg. to get a better customer deal.
    7. Right to object – You have the right to object and prevent your data being used for particular purposes, eg. for direct marketing. This right is superseded by legal claims.
    8. Rights related to automatic decision-making – You may only be profiled with your explicit consent, where this is necessary to enter into a contract or where such processing is authorised by the state.

    Post-Brexit the UK is likely to introduce its own equivalent data protection law. In any case, companies which gather data on EU citizens will have to abide by the GDPR.

    Unless you are a company then probably not at all.

    It might apply to anyone registered as a business. It might not be necessary to be a company.

    I don't know if this is relevant in this case but when I used to work for a solicitor some years ago the general files had to be kept for a period of six years before they could be disposed of. Others had to be kept longer for special cases like child protection etc.
