The Personal Data Protection Office’s Poland wide educational programme ,,Your data – your concern…”, launched in 2009 each year gathers more and more institutions. Also this year we will try to meet the growing demand for knowledge on personal data protection at educational institutions, both among teachers and students. The Personal Data Protection Office provides educational materials and specialised training for schools that will apply for the participation in this initiative.
The co-organisers of the Conference were the President of the Personal Data Protection Office and the European Law Students’ Association ELSA Poznań. During the event, the representatives of the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, the University of Groningen, the European Commission, as well as legal offices presented selected personal data protection issues in the new legal order implemented by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applied as of 25 May 2018.
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
Today on 25 May 2018, we begin to apply the provisions of the EU General Data Protection Regulation, that is the GDPR. Thus the two-year’s long adjustment period, in which everyone obliged to apply its provisions should start acting in a way fully compliant with those provisions, terminates. This day is a perfect occasion to share with you some reflections on the future of the Polish personal data protection system.
Along with the beginning of application of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on 25 May 2018, the obligation to notify personal data filing systems to registration shall terminate. This means that from that date personal data filing notifications, notifications of changes in the personal data filing system and requests for striking off in the register do not have to be sent to the Inspector General for Personal Data Protection.
