Norwegian Data Protection Authority choose not to use Facebook

What are the privacy risks associated with communicating through a Page on Facebook? And what kind of responsibility for the processing of personal data may we have as the owner of a Page? We have carried out a risk assessment and a DPIA of Facebook, based on the obligations that follow from data protection regulations.

Do you want information about GDPR in English?

The European Commission has got information on the official website (ec.europa.eu):

  1. Find out what your organisation must do to comply with EU data protection rules and learn how you can help citizens exercising their rights under the regulation.
  2. Find out how your personal data is protected, the rights that help you take back control of your data and what to do if things go wrong.

Do you wonder if you have to conduct a Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA)?

The Norwegian Data Protection Authority (Datatilsynet) has made public a list of processing activities that we consider likely to result in a high risk to the rights and freedoms of data subjects and that always will require a DPIA. Such an assessment must be carried out before the processing of personal data is initiated.

The Norwegian Data Protection Authority has developed guidelines to help organisations understand and comply with the requirement of data protection by design and by default in article 25 of the General Data Protection Regulation.

We have among others cooperated with security professionals and software developers in public and private sector to create the guidelines.
