Data Business Services provides you with all the services of an EC-Representative for data protection. With Data Business Services as your EC-Representative you can be sure that your company is set for complete GDPR compliance. And with an EC-Representative in Europe, you are prepared for all European privacy inquiries that may arise.
If you do not have a registered office in the EU, you probably still need an EC-Representative. Why? Because you are likely to lose business and perhaps even risk being imposed a fine. One of the rules of the EU-GDPR is the necessity to appoint an EC-Representative when conducting business in the EU, regardless of your company’s location.
Do I need an EC-Representative | EU-Representative GDPR?
- Do you offer goods or services to customers or clients in the EU?
- Do you monitor the behavior of people in the EU?
If the answer to one of these questions is YES, then you must appoint a representative according to the EU-GDPR, especially if your company does not have any physical presence in Europe. Exception: If you are processing personal data only occasionally and if so, then without any risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons. However, the scope for applying this exception is rather small especially for online companies, as most of them rely heavily on the usage of personal data.
