The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been applicable since 25 May 2018. This regulation ensures that the same privacy legislation applies throughout the EU.

As of today, the new European privacy legislation, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), applies. This gives people more and stronger privacy rights. And organizations have more obligations to deal with personal data carefully. The Authority for the Protection of Personal Data will initially focus on compliance with the accountability of organizations, the security of medical data and the trade in personal data when monitoring compliance with the new rules. Chairman Aleid Wolfsen: “This is a historic moment. We now have the same privacy rules across the EU. The privacy legislation is adapted to this time and gives people more control over their personal data. This means that everyone’s fundamental right to the protection of your personal data is better anchored.

Organizations must handle the personal data of their employees, customers or the people to whom they provide services in a responsible manner. They have a duty of accountability: for example, they have to record well what data they process, for what purpose, for how long they retain that data, that they secure the data properly and with whom they share the data. Privacy settings must also be as privacy-friendly as possible; people should be able to consciously choose to tick something, instead of having to uncheck something. And a large number of organizations are obliged by the new legislation to appoint a Data Protection Officer, an internal supervisor.

Dyna also acts in accordance with these regulations. How privacy is dealt with is stated in its privacy statement.
