5 Contract Clauses That Require GDPR Updates

By LinkSquares Team


The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the European Union's governing law for online privacy, which means your terms of service, privacy policy, and legal agreements need to be GDPR compliant if you do business inside, or with the residents of, the EU. That's why LinkSquares created our latest eBook: "How to Make Your Contracts GDPR Compliant (And Keep Them That Way)".

While the GDPR has broad-reaching effects -- it's why EU-hosted websites have to ask explicit permission to use browser cookies, for example -- it impacts your legal agreements in specific ways. Certain standard contract clauses need GDPR updates, including:

  • Audit clause

  • Breach notification clause

  • Data processing clause

  • Data security clause

  • Third party vendor clause

If your legal agreements don't guarantee an as good or better notification standard, they are not GDPR compliant. Similar protections are afforded to persons whose data was exposed by a breach. And that's just one area of a typical end-user agreement or client contract that will likely need GDPR redress.
