GDPR Update - Children & Online Consent
The introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (‘GDPR’) on 25 May 2018 caused near panic in some areas of business which rely on the internet for marketing and for the provision of services to their customers or users.
Now implementation of GDPR and ‘Brexit’ are behind us, it is time to determine whether and to what extent the GDPR will actually impact upon business.
This webinar considers the question of obtaining consent from minors in the context of businesses and has been designed to highlight to practitioners the issues raised by the GDPR limitations on child consent and the risks raised following Brexit by the potential for divergence between UK law and that of the EU.
In particular the webinar will consider the business risks for any data controller dealing with the personal data of minors where those minors may be in the EU/EEA or in the UK or another third country.
Risks considered include those which may arise but which have not yet resulted in action by regulators or by affected parties.
