[Video]: The Best FAQs About GDPR

Home > Branding > [Video]: The Best FAQs About GDPR
Still have some pending questions about complying with GDPR in your company? Our expert answers readers' queries to review the most critical topics and go over specific cases related to this legislation.

The famous and controversial, EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that replaced the former Spanish Organic Law on Personal Data Protection (Ley Oficial de Protección de Datos (LOPD)) is about to celebrate its two-month anniversary after going into effect on May 25th, 2018. Despite that, some doubts remain about how to apply the legislation as well as hope that the time to put all the updates that the legislation demands into practice would get extended.


The truth is that GDPR is already here, and for nearly two months now, it’s imperative that you get updated on all the requirements. The legislation was passed in 2016, and they gave a two-year margin, until May 25th, 2018 for all European corporations to adapt. We are therefore no longer in the time given to adjust nor will there be a grace period for those who are the farthest behind. However, there’s no reason to sound the alarm: these delays don’t necessarily have to result in sanctions as long as we are not subject to a complaint or an inspection.  

Among the questions yet to get resolved about GDPR are ones that are more generic and others more specific. Nonetheless, (nearly) all of them get solved by the GDPR's primary objective: give information and control to users over their personal information. With this purpose in mind, complying with GDPR is getting to be more straightforward. Let’s remember that the legislation states that “we must guarantee the rights of those who give us their data and that data’s integrity and security.”

When you think about it from this perspective, the measures that you have to put into place seem a lot more logical. You have to explain what we’ll do with users’ data in a website’s Privacy Policy in detail, use layered consent (a double opt-in system) in subscription forms, and not send emails to users that have not given explicit, demonstrable consent for their data to get used for the objective of that communication. It’s all about using this information better and fostering transparency.

To take a deep-dive into all the details, we’ve gathered FAQs about GDPR from our readers to get answered in the video below. We'll go over some of the most critical topics, and we'll see how we should proceed in every case to avoid problems later on.



With this video breaking down FAQs about GDPR you’ll be able to wrap up your company’s compliance with the new legislation and offer a transparent and appropriate data protection regimen.
