StarSwift EU General Data Protection Regulation

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The General Data Protection Regulation is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy in the European Union and the European Economic Area. It also addresses the transfer of personal data outside the EU and EEA areas. The GDPR aims primarily to give control to individuals over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU.

GDPR Compliance

Introduced on the 25th May 2018, the EU General Data Protection Regulation expands the rights of individuals to control how their personal data is collected and processed, and places a range of new obligations on organisations to be more accountable for data protection.

The regulation requires organisations to demonstrate compliance with the following key principles:


  • Lawfulness, fairness and transparency

  • Purpose limitation

  • Data minimisation

  • Accuracy

  • Storage limitation

  • Integrity and confidentiality (Security)

  • Accountability

This involves taking a risk-based approach to data protection, ensuring appropriate policies and procedures are in place to deal with the transparency, accountability and individuals’ rights provisions, as well as building a workplace culture of data privacy and security.

The EU ePrivacy Regulation takes on board all definitions of privacy and data that were introduced within the EU GDPR and acts to clarify and enhance the law. It applies to any business that provides any form of online communications service, uses online tracking technologies, or engages in electronic direct marketing.
