What does GDPR stand for?
GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) and at its most basic, it specifies how personal data should be lawfully processed (including how it’s collected, used, protected or interacted with in general).
It’s intended to strengthen data protection for all people whose personal information fall within its scope of application, putting personal data control back into their hands.
What exactly does “Personal Data” comprise of?
Personal data within the context of the GDPR refers to any data that relates to an identified or identifiable living person. This includes pieces of information that, when collected together, can lead to the identification of a person.
This applies even to data that has been pseudonymized or encrypted as long as the encryption/anonymization is reversible. In terms of meeting data protection obligations under the regulation, it means that decryption keys will need to be kept separately from the pseudonymized data.
Examples of personal data include (but are not limited to) basic identity data such as names, health, genetic & biometric data, web data such as IP addresses, personal email addresses, political opinions, and sexual orientation data.
Hence, to avoid future discrepancies. iFoodie is making an effort to comply with GDPR.
iFoodie will (IN FUTURE) offers services in EU. GDRP says, “A company that offers goods or services in the EU (whether or not you charge for them) must comply with the GDPR. In short, if you want EU customers, you'll have to comply with the GDPR.”
