The Data Protection Manager (DPM) of MDA BOOKS WORLD, hereinafter referred to as BIZNIZWEB-SK, proclaims and accepts its responsibility to protect the user’s personal information. This declaration document contains the rules and regulations upon which such information and data are collected and used, and also the reasons for disclosure of such information and data. These rules apply to any personal information collected by MDA BOOKS WORLD.
2. WHAT IS GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a EU-wide regulation that controls how companies and other organizations handle personal data. It is the most significant initiative on data protection in 20 years and has major implications for any organisation in the world, serving individuals from the European Union.
To give people control over how their data is used and to protect "fundamental rights and freedoms of natural persons", the legislation sets out strict requirements on data handling procedures, transparency, documentation and user consent.
Any organisation must keep record of and monitor personal data processing activities.
As data controller, any organization must keep record of and monitor personal data processing activities. This includes personal data handled within the organisation, but also by third parties – so called data processors.
Data processors can be anything from Software-as-a-Service providers to embedded third party services, tracking and profiling visitors on the organisation’s website.
Both data controllers and processors must be able to account for what kind of data is being processed, the purpose of the processing and to which countries and third parties the data is transmitted.
If personal data is being sent to organisations or jurisdictions beyond the reach of the GDPR or that are not deemed 'adequate' by the GDPR, one must inform the user specifically about this and the risks involved.
All consents must be recorded as evidence that consent has been given.
No processing of sensitive personal data is allowed without a person’s explicit consent. For non-sensitive data, implied consent will do. In either case the consent must be freely given on basis of clear and specific information about data types and purpose – and always before any processing takes place, also known as ‘prior’ consent. All consents must be recorded as evidence that consent has been given.
Individuals now have the "right of data portability", the "right of data access" along with the "right to be forgotten" and can withdraw their consent whenever they want. In such case the data controller must delete the individual’s personal data if it's no longer necessary to the purpose for which it was collected.
In case of a data breach, the company must be able to notify data protection authorities and affected individuals within 72 hours.
Furthermore, GDPR imposes an obligation on public authorities, organisations with more than 250 employees and companies processing sensitive personal data at a large scale to employ or train a data protection officer (DPO). The DPO must take measures to ensure GDPR.
