What is the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the implementation of which started on May 25, 2018, applies to companies based in the European Union, but also to international companies that process personal data belonging to natural persons residing in the European Union.
Although many of the principles of the GDPR are in fact an extension of existing EU data protection rules, the GDPR has a wider scope and stricter standards, and provides for significant financial sanctions. For example, it sets stricter conditions for obtaining consent to the use of certain types of data and extends the rights of individuals to access and transfer their data. It also provides for significant penalties, enabling regulators to impose financial penalties of up to 4% of a company's total annual revenue for certain infringements.
The commitment and preparation of the Pc Computers Store
Data protection is a key issue for the Pc Computers Store, which complies with current European Union data protection legislation and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Having already started the necessary procedures for our compliance with the GDPR, we undertake the following commitments:
Transparency: Our Data Policy will remain the only means of describing the methods we use to process users' personal data. At the same time, however, we will provide consent for new and existing customers and recipients of our updates, notifications within the products and solutions we advertise as well as training campaigns for our end customers.
Control: We will continue to provide our customers and recipients of updates with control over how their data is used. In this context, we will always provide the opportunity to exercise the "right to be forgotten" through the informative newsletters that we will send.
Accountability: We are responsible for our practices and have established Privacy Principles that illustrate our rationale for protecting privacy and data. Our legal department has regular meetings with regulators and legislators, as well as with privacy experts, in order to stay fully informed and make the necessary adjustments where needed.
Relevant legal bases
According to the GPDR regulation, there are a number of reasons that justify the processing of personal data. Below we describe the most relevant legal bases, according to the GDPR regulation.
The data being processed must be necessary for the execution of the project and must be defined in the contract concluded with the individual.
Specific and clear consent is required, which should be given freely, having been informed of all relevant information and with clear, positive action.
Recipients have the right to withdraw their consent and should be informed of this right.
A company or other third party must have legitimate interests, which are not undermined by the rights or interests of the individual who consents to the processing of his personal data. Data processing must be stopped in the event of an objection.
Data controller: The data controller is the one who determines the "objectives" and "means" for each case of personal data processing.
Data controllers should adopt compliance measures that cover how data is collected, their purposes of use and how long they are retained, and ensure that individuals have access to the data held.
Perform data processing: Perform data processing is the person who processes personal data on behalf of the data controller. Also, cases that directly concern the data processors, the data controllers must bind them, in order to ensure the safe and legal processing of the data.
