Dear colleagues,

No doubt you have heard and read about the General Data Protection Regulation (‘GDPR’). It is a new European regulation that became effective as of May 25th.

What is GDPR?

The GDPR unifies and clarifies the European rules for processing of personal data and is focused on clarifying the rights of individuals regarding their personal data.

Does it concern my work at Stage Entertainment?

At Stage Entertainment, we are committed to respect the rights of individuals and protect personal data in line with all legal requirements. We all need to ensure that we process personal data in a transparent and lawful manner, and that we respond to requests of individuals when executing their rights.

In this special edition of Spotlight, we will explain the basic principles when you work with personal data. We will also give you the name of a colleague that you can approach with questions and comments.

What are personal data?

Personal data means all information that relates to an individual that is identified by that information, and any information with which an individual may be identifiable. This can be, for example, a name, e-mail address, postal address, telephone number, license plate, online identifiers provided by (mobile) devices, cookie identifiers, or IP-addresses. All these categories can be considered personal data as they identify a certain individual. A date of birth in combination with a street name may also be personal data, as an individual may be identifiable by using the combination of these two sets of data.

Please read the eight principles carefully and think about how you will implement them in your daily work.

This Spotlight informs you about the eight basic principles that you should follow when collecting, processing and storing personal data. Stage Entertainment is preparing a comprehensive training and data protection policy, that will be finalized and issued during the summer. In the meanwhile, you can consult any doubts with your Data Protection Country Lead.
