Date-wise Representation of GDPR from Proposal to Implementation:
How GDPR Differs from the Old Directive? – The Note-worthy Changes in the New Regulation
New Set of Rights for the Data Subjects
Earlier, data subjects did not enjoy as much transparency and control over their data as they are now going to with this GDPR in use. Although, the previous directive also gave EU citizens the right to data the new regulation adds an extra edge to it with a more rigorous approach.
Is our Database GDPR Compliant?
Healthcare industry deals with highly sensitive patient data. Therefore, application of GDPR becomes more stringent and stricter in this sector. Unlike the previous directive, GDPR clearly defines health data and focuses on protecting the patient data also. It brings all the physical and mental health information of an individual under the jurisdiction of ‘health data.’ Hence, data processors and controllers engaged in health data processing have to abide GDPR compliance guidelines at any cost.
We as a marketing database provider in the healthcare industry have always given priority to protecting our client data. It is not that with GDPR coming into play, we have become alert and paying particular attention. While most providers were adversely affected by GDPR, we had an opposite experience. Even before GDPR got implemented, we were ready to face the compliance challenge. A dedicated legal team ensures that we follow all the norms to keep our proceedings legal and wise.
Our team has taken necessary steps to ensure that the data we offer is GDPR compliant-
- The contact details of prospects we offer come from reliable sources like
market surveys, seminars, conferences, websites, business listings, etc.
- We update, clean and validate our database on a regular basis.
- Every data is stored with proper protection in place.
- We make sure only permissioned based data enters our database.
