What do you need to know about GDPR ?

Our company has numerous references regarding data protection. Our colleagues have not only experiences but also have state accredited certificates.

GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is a general data protection regulation accepted by the European Union.  Earlier, there was only an EU guideline available about the management of personal data, but from now on GDPR has a compulsory effect, and is to be applied as generally binding  in each member state of the European Union. Hence in the member states, unlike earlier, the most important rules to apply about the management and protection of personal data will not be the national regulation any more, but the  DECREE 2016/679 (27th April, 2016) of the EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND THE COUNCIL that has been binding since 25th May 2018. 

When our clients hear about the GDPR, we typically receive from them the following four questions:

1) Am I also affected?

In case somebody (independently of the organizational form) manages any data, it is necessary to prepare information materials and rules of data protection. Do you have an employee? Then you already are affected. GDPR has to be applied if your venture is operating in the EU, and its data management relates to this operation.   

2) What is the worst that can happen? Who is in charge of control?

It is the NAIH (Nemzeti Adatvédelmi és Információszabadság Hatóság or National Authority for Data Protection and Freedom of Information) who is in charge of checking the adherence to GDPR. It can make inspections and can sanction the violation of data protection rules. The highest amount of the fine is 20 million euros or 4% of the global revenues of the preceding year, whichever is higher. Certainly it is the NAIH that decides about the necessary sanction.  

3) What can I do?

We have experience in legal advice re. data protection, the preparation of data protection rules and information materials. To the satisfaction of our clients we have prepared the data protection rules of numerous ventures and organizations. Our typical clients are condominium managers and SMEs.  In case you feel you are uncertain if you are affected, or what the next steps should be, you can contact us with full confidence. We see the efforts of several companies without any relevant experience to use this market niche, opened by the new regulation. In most cases they provide cheap, but useless, low-quality materials to those who are interested. In other cases they dictate unbelievably high fees abusing the exposure of their clients to quick actions and lack of  experience. Would you like to receive valuable skills and experience for a fair price, you can contact us.  

4) How much does it cost for me? Considering already being late for keeping the deadline, by when can the missed actions be made up ?

The good news is that we have not yet heard news about an NAIH inspection made. This does not mean that there will not be initiated any soon. Foreseeably we can be ready with the necessary documentation within 1-2 months. Its price can be different depending on the number of employees, website(s), newsletter circulations, entrance systems, car trackings, etc. In order to receive a quick and accurate feedback from us, please contact our colleague. You will be assisted in filling our questionnaire for a price calculation for you.
