10 Key GDPR Contract Terms Every Legal Team Should Track

By LinkSquares Team

Contract The European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is very explicit about your digital privacy obligations to the citizens and residents of the EU, but making sure your customer contracts meet that standard can feel like a full-time job. That's why LinkSquares developed our latest eBook, "How to Make Your Contracts GDPR Compliant (And Keep Them That Way)"

In this eBook, we identify key GDPR legal terms that your client contracts must address. These include:
  • Personal information
  • Sensitive data
  • Data collection
  • Data processing
  • Data controllers
  • Data processors
  • International transfers
  • Security
  • Data breaches
  • Breach notifications

Each of the above terms has specific definitions under the GDPR, as well as regulations around how these topics must be addressed in your terms of service, privacy policy, and similar legal agreements. Put another way: it doesn't matter what your organization considers "sensitive data," or how your security procedures define a "data breach." The GDPR has firm guidelines you're expected to meet if you're doing business in the European Union.

For example, under the GDPR, you are required to notify a supervising authority of a data breach within 72 hours of discovering the incident. If your privacy policy doesn't commit to an equal or better breach notification procedure, your agreement is non-compliant under the GDPR.  

In "How to Make Your Contracts GDPR Compliant (And Keep Them That Way)", we summarize the key terms listed above, discuss the common contract clauses that will need to adapt to the constraints of the GDPR, and explain the role of software in keeping your contracts GDPR compliant.
