GDPR-Data Protection Regulation
EU’s Data Protection Regulation GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) application will begin on 25 May 2018. Pilvia has taken this into account as part of good service and maintenance practices.
With the Data Protection Regulation, the EU data protection of EU citizens is enhanced. Each person under the Regulation are entitled to:
- Get to know what information about them is collected
- To be able to prohibit the collection and processing, including request the deletion of the data collected
- To get information about them in machine-readable format so that the data is negotiable on another system
- The right to know the information leak, in which their information may have been leaking
In the Regulation, the obligations of personal data collector or the data controller will increase substantially. The EU Data Protection Regulation can be found in the EUR-Lex information service. Pilvia Ltd is a company registered in EU member country Finland and comply with all Finnish law and norms now and in the future.
