In compliance with GDPR.
“The GDPR aims to define and control the processing of personal data of any individual who is in European territory.
Below we have the definitions of what personal data is according to GDPR:
(i) Personal Data: means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, especially through references to an identifier such as a name, an identity number, location data, an online identifier, or through one or more characteristics related to physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person;
(ii) Processing: means any operation or set of operations that are performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether automated or not, such as: collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation, alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination, making accessible in any form, combination, restriction and destruction;
(iii) Controller (Controller): means the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other entity that, alone or together with others, determines the reasons and forms for processing personal data;
Moving on to the analysis of some of the established obligations, the first to be highlighted concerns the consent of the subject holding the personal data processed. Entities/companies involved in processing activities must clearly indicate the reasons for using the personal data collected, as well as obtain an explicit declaration of consent from the owner of those data. In this case, there is no need to speak in terms of extensive use and full of other provisions – it is an objective, clear and explicit statement, through which the user undeniably becomes aware of what will be done with their data (and that it is easily verified in the future).
To the data owner, GDPR granted the right to obtain from the entities/companies any and all information regarding their data and how they were and are being used.
The GDPR has as one of the main novelties, the user’s right to be forgotten, that is, if the user requests that their personal data be erased, the person responsible must comply with the request without undue delay.
Among the main definitions and requirements of GDPR we can mention:
1 · Definition and expansion of the concept of Personal Data, including genetic and biometric data. For purposes of understanding, the GDPR has defined as personal data any data that, isolated or associated with other data, is capable of identifying a person;
2 · Creation of Local Controlling Bodies for each member country of the European community. These bodies will be responsible for receiving and investigating complaints, complaints about the adoption of GDPR;
3 · Appointment of a representative of the organization to be responsible for the management of personal data. This representative can be a person, a department or even external companies. Will be responsible for implementing appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure and demonstrate that personal data held by the company complies with GDPR requirements;
4 · Communication to the Local Controlling Bodies of any breach of personal data, within a maximum period of 72 hours. If the violation poses risks to the holder, he must also be notified;
5 · Establishment of various rights for citizens, such as:
– Right to be deleted – When triggered, organizations must delete all personal data of the applicant;
– Right to object – The individual can deny the use of their personal data for certain situations, such as marketing campaigns, for example;
– Right to rectification of data – The individual may request and indicate the correction and completion of incomplete personal data;
– Right to Portability – Citizens can request the transfer of their data from one organization to another, without obstacles or bureaucracy;
– Right to transparency – Citizens can request information about the processing and storage of their data, including: retention time, contact details of the person responsible for personal data in the organization, justification for keeping personal data stored;
– Privacy of Children’s Data – All storage of personal data of children under the age of 13 must have parental consent.
GDPR proves to be more complete and demanding than bill 5276/16 not yet approved, thus complying with European legislation would consequently comply with Brazilian legislation.”
