General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) took effect on 25 May 2018. The GDPR replaces the Personal Data Protection Act (Wbp) of the Netherlands. The introduction of the GDPR means that effective 25 May 2018 the same privacy legislation applies throughout the European Union.

The purpose of the GDPR is to guarantee the protection of personal data, and sets out how organisations must treat personal data.

What is personal data?

The concept of personal data comprises all of the information about an identified or identifiable natural person. This information must be able to lead directly or indirectly (through back-tracing) to the identification of a natural person. The GDPR divides personal data into two groups:

Ordinary personal data

  • Name
  • Address
  • Post code
  • Town/City
  • Social Security Number
  • Email address:
  • Car registration data
  • IP address

Special personal data:

  • Race
  • Religion
  • Sex life
  • Political persuasion
  • Health
  • Trade union membership
  • Criminal behaviour
  • Genetic identifiers
  • Biometric identifiers

DSD Barn Equipment will never ask you for special personal data and therefore does not process any special personal data.

How is processing personal data defined?

According to Article 4 paragraph 2 of the GDPR, the processing of personal data is: Any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on a set of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, etc. The concept of processing is very broad and encompasses all activities that involve the collection of data up to the destruction of data.
