Microsoft says it's extending GDPR rights to consumers worldwide

This is part of a series on how GDPR affects companies and how to comply with its requirements.

The iPhone-maker has just launched a new Data and Privacy portal in order to comply with GDPR which comes into force across the European Union from Friday.

First of all I need to let you understand that the full meaning of GDPR is General Data Protection Regulation.

"Second, it applies to processing of personal data by a controller or processor outside the European Union, if the data subjects are in the Union, and if the controller or processor is offering goods and services to those in the Union, or monitoring the behavior of those in the Union - so a United States website, offering products for sale priced in Euros, would be caught". That's because to comply with it, affected companies must report serious data breaches within 72 hours, provide customers with a copy of their personal data, correct inaccuracies in the data and delete it at consumers' request.

Fines for noncompliance with GDPE could potentially cost either 4 percent of a health system's gross global annual income or $23.4 million - whichever number is larger. This was with respect to people exchanging their personal data for use of "free" services provided by big names like Twitter, Google and Facebook, and GDPR aims to rectify this.

JC Penney CEO responsible for marketing cuts leaves for Lowe's
The sudden departure of Ellison is the second straight time Penney's has had to deal with unexpected C-Suite turmoil. Penney Company, Inc., and previously served as president and CEO-designee of JCPenney from 2014 to 2015.

"It's crucial that companies wise up on compliance in time", Pasquet wrote in an email.

Adhering with the GDPR is highly important. In the US, the portal has two main functions: correcting the information Apple has associated with a particular account, and permanently deleting an account and its associated data from Apple's services.

USA Today took another approach. Many of these issues are covered by GDPR as well. "There is a lot more awareness amongst companies since our first survey previous year, but we continue to see a huge amount of confusion amongst organisations as to what to prioritise in order to tackle the regulation", added Fielding.

"The GDPR is an important and necessary development for data security and privacy and we welcomed the opportunity to fine-tune our software to make it even more valuable to our customers", says Joe Gerard, i-Sight's CEO. Additionally, it will position US companies well for when Congress passes similar legislation-something he predicts will happen.
