Does your company collect and/or use information from customers, web visitors and others for the purposes of your business? You have a legal duty of care to protect that information, as governed by a series of laws including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
If you are in business, you are more than likely aware of the GDPR. When you collect and use personal information, you have a legally binding duty to protect it and keep it private. You can only use the data for the purposes you describe at the time it is collected and you cannot share or sell the data to another organisation without the person’s explicit permission. It is essential that you keep the data secure, and it doesn’t matter how much time passes – you can only use that data for the purpose it was collected.
There are severe penalties for businesses that do not comply with the GDPR, including significant financial penalties and even jail time. As a result, it is important you thoroughly understand your responsibilities.
The team at Dillon Geraghty Solicitors LLP can provide you with the most up-to-date legal advice and help you comply with GDPR requirements.
