General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) represents a significant change in data privacy regulation. It replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and is designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, provide rights to European Union (EU) citizens regarding data privacy, and reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy.

Personal data in the context of GDPR means any information relating to an identified or identifiable “EU data subject” An identifiable “EU data subject” is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to, among other things, an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, or an online identifier.

Examples of personal data include, but are not limited to, name and surname, home address, a photograph, email address (such as name.surname@company.com), identification card numbers, personal phone numbers, location data (such as stored on a mobile device or computer), Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, cookie IDs, the advertising identifier of a phone, data held by a hospital or doctor that uniquely identifies a person (for example, a unique patient number), and the direct content of school work.

The GDPR applies to organizations located within the EU, and organizations located outside of the EU if they offer goods or services to, or monitor the behavior, or processing the personal data of “EU data subjects”.

The GDPR may apply to certain personal data collected by Harper College because, in certain limited circumstances, we engage in business activities that collect or process the personal data of individuals residing in the EU.
