Personal data (GDPR)

Specialised Law

Personal data in practise

The protection of personal data play an increasing role in society. In Denmark, we have had rules on the protection of “registers” since the 1970’s. In year 2000, the rules were tightened and the protection of the personal data were elevated to a human right in the EU. However, the main development was in April 2016 when the EU agreed on imposition of a common EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which came into effect on 25 May 2018. With the General Data Protection Regulation, the rules were ones again tightened and so was the enforcement and the level of fines.
