Data Protection Update
Impact of GDPR and recent English Court of Appeal cases: A time for action
1. Guernsey’s Data Protection (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law 2001 (“DPL”) closely follows the English Data Protection Act 1998 (“DPA”) which implemented EU Directive 95/46/EC (“the Directive”).
2. In 2016 the EU approved new legislation, which will supersede the current Directive in May 2018. The new EU legislation consists of the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (“the GDPR”) and Directive 2016/680 relating to the processing of personal data for the purposes of the prevention of crime.
