Data Protection officer: Mr M. De Baker
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force across the European Union on 25th May 2018 and brings with it the most significant changes to data protection law in two decades. Based on privacy by design and taking a risk-based approach, the GDPR has been designed to meet the requirements of the digital age.
The 21st Century brings with it broader use of technology, new definitions of what constitutes personal data, and a vast increase in cross-border processing. The new Regulation aims to standardize data protection laws and processing across the EU; affording individuals stronger, more consistent rights to access and control their personal information.
EA School Online is committed to ensuring the security and protection of the personal information that it processes, and to provide a compliant and consistent approach to data protection. It recognizes its obligations in updating and expanding its data protection program to meet the demands of the GDPR.
EA School Online is dedicated to safeguarding the personal information under our remit and in developing a data protection regime that is effective, fit for purpose and demonstrates an understanding of, and appreciation for the new Regulation.
