GDPR Tracker by Alston & Bird

GDPR Tracker is a resources provided by Alston and Bird which shows the specific variations of GDPR by various countries in the EU. Not only is important to comply with GDPR by the 25th of May 2018, its also important to have a working knowledge of the different variations that each country introduces into the GDPR. A handful of EU countries are adding their spin to GDPR for example France gives the CNIL the right to establish additional safeguards for the processing of data on criminal offences and to require additional technical and organisational measures for the processing of the biometric, genetic and health data. The draft also provides that processing pertaining to research in health matters shall continue to be subject to an authorisation process.

The GDPR also gives some room for the legal framing of profiling which is defined as an automated processing using personal data to assess certain personal aspects pertaining to a natural person for the purpose, notably, of analysing or predicting aspects concerning his or her economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location or movements.
