Changes To The Polish Data Protection Act May Affect Your Compliance Status

As of 1 January, amendments to the Polish Data Protection Act of 29 August 1997 entered into force, following the passing, on 7 November 2014, of the act on the facilitation of conditions regarding the conduct of business activity, which may impact the data compliance status of many companies. The law generally aims to facilitate data controllers' duties and it will amend or supplement existing provisions by providing additional options to fulfill data protection requirements. Some may find it surprising that Poland changed its data protection law now, since the new, relevant EU General Data Protection Regulation is on the way, but the amendment process has been in progress since 2012.
