Newfinns.com and GDPR

Written by

As many of you already know recently became into force the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR EU 2016/679), which regulates data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA), regarding also the transfer of data and its privacy outside those areas...Then according to Wikipedia the core of the regulation might be briefed as : “Business processes that handle personal data must be built with data protection by design and by default, meaning that personal data must be stored using pseudonymisation or full anonymisation, and use the highest-possible privacy settings by default, so that the data is not available publicly without explicit consent, and cannot be used to identify a subject without additional information stored separately. No personal data may be processed unless it is done under a lawful basis specified by the regulation, or if the data controller or processor has received explicit, opt-in consent from the data subject. The data subject has the right to revoke this permission at any time.” 

Given the above and the other general provisions of the regulation I shall state that ...for now... Newfinns.com is not a commercial enterprise and does not directly collect personal data of its visitors and supporters for business, advertisement or third party data-exchange services. Yes the platform of the site has a “Log in” registration section, which is still opened to the general public, where a supporter may register entering some personal data. The data is by default stored in anonymously closed database and can be deleted at any time on request! Newfinns.com does not directly use cookies, neither commercially tailored content (for now?)! 

P.S. For those of you who may prefer seeing a visual presentation of GDPR, here I hyperlink a video

Kind regards, Rosti
