EU General Data Protection Regulation

The European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) contains new data protection requirements that will apply from 25 May 2018.  This affects all Australian business (regardless of size) if they:

  • have an establishment (e.g. physical store) inside the EU.
  • offer goods and services to individuals inside the EU, or
  • monitor the behaviour of individuals in the EU.

The Australian Government has a great resource about what you need to do – click here to read.  ABC News – also has a great article here.

We would encourage you to review this information carefully and seek legal advice where appropriate. Any clients that fall under GDPR are advised to contact TMD to discuss options.
