What is the GDPR?
The GDPR is the new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The GDPR adapts the previous Data Protection Directive (from 1995) to the digital age: It is modernised and updated. How must personal data be handled today? The requirements are set out in the GDPR. The GDPR will enter into force on 25 May 2018.
What is personal data?
Personal data is information about a user that allows conclusions to be drawn about who the user is. Personal data therefore includes information such as names, date of birth, email addresses, social security numbers, bank data, online data, but also physical characteristics such as gender or clothing size. How personal data must be handled is regulated by the GDPR.
What does GDPR mean?
Instead of the German term DSGVO, the English term "General Data Protection Regulation", in short: GDPR, is also often used.
Who is affected by the GDPR?
The GDPR affects all companies that have a branch in the EU and/or process data of EU citizens. So for example also k-sales.ch GmbH, since customers in the EU work with k-sales.ch GmbH.
Why does the GDPR also affect Swiss companies?
If a Swiss company also has a registered office in the European Union (EU) or - much more frequently - if a company processes personal data of EU citizens, then the GDPR also affects this company.
What are the advantages of the GDPR for users?
The new regulation gives users more control over their personal data. The GDPR contains principles and rights for users on how information such as names, date of birth, email addresses, social security numbers, bank data, online data, but also physical characteristics such as gender or clothing size can be processed.
What does the GDPR mean for companies?
The GDPR puts more onus on companies and requires more detailed documentation on how personal data is processed.
Is k-sales.ch GmbH DSGVO compliant?
Yes. When the new European Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) comes into force, we as a provider comply with the legal requirements.
What is a contract on order processing (AVV)?
The contract on order processing sets out the framework conditions for how personal data is outsourced to third parties - in this case k-sales.ch GmbH - for processing on behalf of your company.
Do I need a contract on commissioned processing (AVV, formerly: ADV)?
If you as a company have a registered office in the European Union (EU) or process personal data of EU citizens, then the GDPR also affects you. You must then also conclude a contract on commissioned processing (AVV) with k-sales.ch GmbH, among others, in order to be data protection compliant.
