One of the purposes of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is to protect individuals’ fundamental rights and freedoms, particularly their right to protection of their personal data. If your organisation processes personal data, the Regulation requires you to provide data subjects with certain information. This typically takes the form of a data privacy statement or privacy notice. Every organization that maintains a website should publish their privacy notice there, under the title “Privacy Policy,” and it should be accessible via a direct link from every webpage. If a website collects any personal data online, the privacy notice or a link to it should be provided on the same page where the data collection occurs. The GDPR also states that privacy notices must be available orally upon request to ensure comprehension and to aid the visually impaired. The Information Notice Tool is mainly focused only on Art. 13 and Art. 14 of the GDPR which enlist the elements that must be included in an Information Notice to data subjects. The Cyberwatching Information Notice Tool was created to help organisations have a more robust GDPR posture. The tool provides a practical check-list for the components required in an Information Notice under the GDPR. This tool was developed as part of the initiative for informative and awareness purposes, under the supervision of the law firm ICT Legal Consulting. This tool consists of questions about the data processing activities, also providing corresponding recommendations coming directly from ICT Legal Consulting, a law firm with plenty of expertise in the area. The Cyberwatching Information Notice Tool is available free of charge and can be completed in less than 15 minutes.
