On 25 May 2018, a new European data protection regulation becomes effective (General Data Protection Regulation, GDPR), which replaces the EU data protection directive dated 1995.
As the controller of your personal data, Happy Paw Training Limited with its registered office in Balbriggan takes a responsible approach to the issue of the protection of our clients’ personal data.
GDPR is Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data (General Data Protection Regulation). The new regulation will apply from 25 May 2018. The European regulation directly and wholly regulates personal data protection in the entire European Union. The assumption of this document was to reduce the differentiation of regulations between the individual Member States. GDPR brings new solutions and enhances existing requirements. It also introduces a lot of new rights for natural persons and obligations for controllers.

From May, the rights of EU citizens will become significantly enhanced by the simultaneous imposition of new obligations on all personal data processing organizations, in particular, ones which offer goods and services online.
