Data Security & Email Validation: Who to Trust with Your Data

Did you know that basic information such as email addresses are classified as “personal data” and you need to collect and share them in a way that complies with the law? It's not worth to take the risk.

As you already know, "personal data" means data relating to a living individual who is (or can be) identified either from the data or from the data in conjunction with other information that are in the possession of a third party.

Since May 2018, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and is designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe. The aim is to protect and empower all EU citizens data privacy and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy. 

The key articles of the GDPR, as well as information on its business impact, can be summarized as follow: 

  1. Increased Territoriality
    The GDPR has an extended jurisdiction and applies to all companies processing the personal data of EU residents, regardless of the company’s location.
  2. Huge Penalties
    In breach of GDPR, organizations can be fined up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20 Million (whichever is greater).
  3. Intelligible Consent
    With GDPR the request for consent must be given in an intelligible and easily accessible form; consent must also be distinguishable from other matters and provided in an accessible form, using a clear and plain language.
  4. Data-Subject Rights
    Under the GDPR, breach notification will become mandatory within 72 hours; data subjects have the right to know whether or not their personal data are processed and can also ask to be forgotten.

Adoption of the good practice recommendations will help organisations to collect and share personal data in a fair and transparent way, but also in line with the expectations of the people whose data is being shared.
