Maintaining privacy in today’s digital world is no small feat. With many of us holding countless subscriptions for different online services, it has become more important than ever to know what information we are providing and how it is being used. 

The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) sets out to better ensure data protection across the board for citizens and businesses, regulating how the data which you provide is used and ensuring everyone is fully aware of their rights to privacy. This is very important as it looks to address new challenges created by technological advancements and digital innovations. 

It provides for how public and private entities can use your data, how long they should keep such data, and your rights when it comes to changing or even deleting the data that entities have on you. 

Getting up to speed on your data protection rights is essential. For more information, you can refer to the website of the Data Protection Commissioner, or contact MEUSAC either via email on or by phone 2200 3300.
