This is how the data protection law comparison works
About the International comparison of data protection laws
In an increasingly networked, globalised and digitised world the requirement and thus the need for data protection and data security is increasing. At the same time, the exchange of data is taking place in many companies across borders.
To some extent, data protection is regulated by very different laws in the individual countries. This can lead to uncertainty about the legal regulations that are specifically applicable and the issues to be considered from the point of view of data protection. Hence, the precise knowledge of the regulations applicable in each case is becoming more and more important.
That is why the data protection experts at activeMind.legal have set themselves the task of giving you an overview with the free international data protection-comparison tool and an in-depth description of the existing data protection regulations in the most economically relevant countries of the EU, the EEA as well as selected countries outside the EU/EEA.
Our goal is to create a comparative framework for selected countries by dealing with important data protection topics and thus resolving many data protection issues and simplifying strategic decisions of your company. We are oriented towards the currently applicable legal regulations. The topics especially relevant to data protection include data transfer, E-Marketing or the obligation to register.
Special emphasis is placed on the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which will come into effect in May 2018 with the aim to harmonise European data protection laws.
