GDPR: The period of tolerance on penalties will expire on may 19th

Only few days remain before the full application of the new penalty regime provided for data protection will become applicable. The so called “soft” period provided for by article 22, paragraph 13 of Legislative Decree 101/2018 – by which during the first eight months starting from September 2018 the Italian Data Protection Authority does not impose any GDPR related penalty – will expire on May 19th. All operators are encouraged to make an assessment for complying with the GDPR rules. The related penalties are very high – up to 20 million Euro or up to 4% of the annual turnover.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to Andersen Tax & Legal Italy’s professionals for further information and clarifications on the implementation of the GDPR.
