The European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) And Its Consequences For the International Tolling Industry

About the Webinar

This webinar took place on October 6, 2020.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy in the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA). It also addresses the transfer of personal data outside the EU and EEA areas. The GDPR's primary aim is to give control to individuals over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU. The regulation became a model for many national laws outside EU, including Chile, Japan, Brazil, South Korea, Argentina and Kenya. The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), adopted on 28 June 2018, has many similarities with the GDPR.

This webinar gave an overview of the regulation and its effects on the worldwide tolling industry. Industry experts shared their lessons learned so far, some pitfalls to avoid and best practice examples.
