ARTICLE 1 - DEFINITION
The General Data Protection Regulations concern the processing and circulation of personal data, the information on which companies rely to offer services and products. It lays down rules on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and rules on the free movement of such data. It protects the fundamental rights and freedoms of natural persons and in particular their right to the protection of personal data. The main objectives of the DPMR are to increase both the protection of data subjects when processing their personal data and the accountability of those involved in such processing. The objective is also to harmonise the European legal standard for the protection of personal data, so that there is one single framework applying to all Member States.
ARTICLE 2 - CONCEPT OF PERSONAL DATA
Personal data is information that makes it possible to identify a natural person, directly or indirectly. It can be a name, a photograph, an IP address, a telephone number, a computer connection identifier, a postal address, a fingerprint, a voice recording, a social security number, an email address, etc. Some data are sensitive because they relate to information that may give rise to discrimination or prejudice: political opinion, religious sensitivity, trade union involvement, ethnicity, sexual orientation, medical situation or philosophical ideas are sensitive data. They have a specific framework, which prohibits any prior collection without clear and explicit written consent, and for specific cases, validated by the National Commission for Information Technology and Civil Liberties - "CNIL" and whose public interest is proven.
ARTICLE 3 - DATA COLLECTED WITHIN THE COMPANY
