How does it affect a neighborhood association?
In May 2018, the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) entered into force. All organizations, regardless of the sector to which they were engaged, were affected, including neighborhood association. These are responsible for the processing of your data. Which do you deal with most frequently?
- Information regarding the owners of the neighborhood association, data required for the proper functioning of the community.
- Content of surveillance systems. The neighbors associations will be responsible for the recordings that can be made through the security systems established in the neighbors associations.
- Information about workers. These are data that are collected in the employment contracts to be treated.
This information cannot be treated internally, without major significance. After the modifications implemented in the RGPD, all the neighborhood associations are obliged to register the activities of this treatment, where the objective of the possession of such data, the categories of personal data or transfers to third parties, among other aspects, are described, appearing before any higher body if necessary.
And if an adequate treatment of the data is not done?
The person (s) responsible for carrying out the treatment must be trained for it, the community being responsible for the treatment being carried out correctly. Otherwise, they may be penalized for their mismanagement. These penalties range from € 600,000 in up to € 20,000,000, depending on the severity, in the event that the old LOPD has been breached.
