Poland's Proposed GDPR Exemptions Spark Outrage

The Polish government is considering exempting small- and medium-sized businesses from having to comply with key requirements of the incoming GDPR, causing alarm among privacy advocates, members of the European Parliament and the country 's data protection authority.

The requirements that would be exempted for companies employing fewer than 250 people would include an obligation to tell people how long their data will be stored for and what their rights are regarding objections to processing, demands for rectification and deletion, access to their data, data portability, and the right to complain to the Polish DPA.
