WordPress DSGVO | Legal implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO)
What is the DSGVO
WordPress DSGVO: Under the General Data Protection Regulation of 25 May 2018, each website must comply with the requirements of these provisions as of 25 May 2018. The purpose of the EU GDPR, in particular, is to strengthen the rights of EU citizens with regard to their data. It is about the so-called victims rights. Affected parties must be informed about data breaches, and this must be understood and timely.
Who is affected
The DSGVO must be observed and adhered to as soon as personal data is processed. Personal data includes, for example, the e-mail address, IP address, name and much more. The EU Data Protection Basic Regulation requires companies to comply with new obligations vis-à-vis the authorities. Companies must technically and organisationally ensure that the data concerned is protected accordingly.
Far higher fines than before are possible for the enforcement of data protection law. In certain cases, the amount of fines for administrative offences is fixed at up to 20 million Euro or up to four percent of the worldwide annual turnover according to Article 83 paragraph (5) (in comparison, the German BDSG has so far provided for a maximum fine of 300,000 Euro). The member states may also provide for further sanctions.
