As a first step, it is necessary to understand the legal framework of the general European data protection regulation. In order to be able to apply the rules of the GDPR, it is necessary to understand the legislation and the consequences of non-compliance.
The General Data Protection Regulation is the new reference text in the European Union regarding personal data.
With the explosion of digital technology, the emergence of new uses and the implementation of new business models, it has become necessary to harmonize European legal rules on the protection of personal data. This general European data protection regulation therefore applies to all member states of the European Union. It also applies to foreign companies that process the personal data of European citizens.
The aim of the GDPR is to protect the personal data of Internet users. Indeed, with the implementation of the GDPR, it is compulsory to obtain the prior consent of the persons concerned if the company wants to be able to collect their personal data.
