AVG; protection of personal data

On may 25th 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation (Dutch: AVG) came into force. As a result, the Dutch Personal Data Protection Act (Dutch: Nederlandse Wet bescherming persoonsgegevens) lost its legal effect and since then the same uniform privacy legislation applies throughout the European Union. The GDPR brought many changes and therefore entails major consequences for companies and organizations that process personal data. It is important for them that they meet the requirements as laid down in the GDPR.
