ExcEED briefing on EU data protection reform strengthening citizens’ rights. How does it impact the project?

From the 25th of May 2018, the most important change in European data privacy regulation, in two decades, comes into force.

The EU General Data Protection Regulation aims to protect all EU citizens from privacy and data breaches. Although the key principles of data privacy still hold true, data collectors will have to abide by new rules such as: clear consent requests, timely breach notifications, the right to be forgotten, privacy by design, to just name a few.

ExcEED, together with other projects/initiatives that deal with data on the energy performance of buildings, must implement these new rules. Some of the main changes and their impact are highlighted in this latest briefing. ExcEED considers data privacy of paramount importance when designing its database on state-of-the-art buildings and districts (available from mid-2018).
