As you noted, privacy is more broad definition and include fundamental rights for keeping information about themselves in secret. In other words that is the «Right to be left alone».

GDPR is a 100-page document that was researched in details by Legal Kornet for our clients. Moreover, before enactment of the GDPR, our team have studied in Moscow in Higher School of Economics to build and strengthen their knowledge in this complicated issue.

Besides, the Managing partner of Legal Kornet Nikita Tepikin is a member of international intellectual property organization (IAPP) that is leading organization in the area of data protection.

Why does Legal Kornet recommend to comply with GDPR rules and laws?

European legislator realized that legal rules tend to be obviated that's why he imposed huge fines for ignoring prescriptions of GDPR law. For example, if you do not have simply privacy policy or do not possess legal grounds for processing personal data, you can be fined for up to 50 million dollars.

It's the myth that GDPR fines has no jurisdiction over any other jurisdiction. In civilized countries all the commercial courts are follow the rules of mutual respect and recognition for foreign courts's decision.

Besides, GDPR law is not only dangerous for its huge fines. The act introduces definition of a controller and processor. Controller is a man who defines the manner, form and way of data processing. While processor is a man who only gets instructions from the controller on processing the data.

In this regard, GDPR rules instruct to conclude a contract between these two participants where processor must take all necessary measures in accordance with the GDPR to protect the rights of data subjects. Hence, if your partner is located in the EU, you will have no choice but follow GDPR law. On the other hand, it is simply listing you in a black list of companies that ignores the EU personal data (GDPR) rules. That's why, Legal Kornet has seen and prepared many contract.

GDPR is a challenge to the whole world. But we can do it together. When GDPR was enacted, we have worked for many companies and prepared such important documents as Privacy Policy, employee policy, legitimate interest test.
