Working Party publishes GDPR guidelines on transparency

The Article 29 Working Party has published its guidelines on transparency under Regulation 2016|679. The Guidelines aim to provide practical guidance and clarification on the transparency obligations introduced by the EU General Data Protection Regulation that require controllers to provide certain information to data subjects regarding the processing of their personal data.

Key takeaways from the Guidelines include how data requests must be clearly distinguished from other information; processing information should be provided in a layered structure; clear and plain language must be used; information may be provided orally; and controllers should provide data subjects with an overview of the consequences of the processing as it affects them.
