Through this newsletter, we would like to inform you about a completely new legal framework for the protection of personal data, namely the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which will enter into force on 25 May 2018. The Regulation will significantly increase the protection of personal data, however on the other hand it will bring several new obligations. What changes does this Regulation bring?
The Regulation introduces new obligations for all companies, institutions and individuals who process personal data across segments, including companies that only track or analyse user's behaviour on websites and companies that use mobile apps or smart technologies.
In the event of a breach of these obligations, the GDPR allows to impose very high fines, up to 20 000 000 EUR, or in the case of undertaking, up to 4 % of its total worldwide annual turnover of the preceding financial year, whichever is higher. The amount of the fine will depend not only on the extent of the breach but also on the steps taken by the companies for the protection of personal data.
Appropriate measures relating to the following changes in the area of personal data protection can avoid breach of these obligations and any sanctions that may arise therefrom. If you are interested in taking appropriate action the experienced team of RD Legal is fully available to you and ready to help with changing your model contracts, internal regulations or introducing other measures that suit your needs and your business.
This Newsletter is prepared to inform you on an important development in the regulation of criminal liability of legal entities in the Czech Republic. Relevant changes will become effective on 1 December 2016 based on an Amendment to the Czech Criminal Liability Act.
The Amendment represents new risks to be covered, as well as it represents, in comparison with the current regulation, an opportunity to mitigate related risks of Czech legal entities to be held criminally liable for actions of its employees, with potential severe sanctions (even dissolution of the legal entity or imposition of material fines).
Both can be covered by a set of measures to be adopted by the legal entities. The criminal law team of RD Legal is fully available to review the measures you currently have in place and to adjust them so that your protection against criminal liability of legal entities, when considering the specifics of your business operations, is fully set based on the new regulation. Alternatively, based on your preference, we may also implement the standard set of measures we have available for this topic.
