Does the European Union General Data Protection Regulation apply to us?

The European Union (the EU) General Data Protection Regulation (commonly referred to as GDPR) contains new data protection requirements is effective as of 25 May 2018. GDPR replaces national privacy and security laws that previously existed within the EU with a single, comprehensive EU-wide law that governs the use, sharing, transferring and processing of any personal data that originates from the EU. The GDPR applies to the data processing activities of businesses, regardless of size, that are data processors or controllers with an establishment in the EU.

Consequently, Australian businesses of any shape and size may need to comply if they have an establishment in the EU, if they offer goods and services in the EU, or if they monitor the behaviour of individuals in the EU. There are also some notable differences, including certain rights of individuals (such as the ‘right to be forgotten’) which do not have an equivalent right under the APPs and the Privacy Act.

Currently, the GDPR does not apply to our business as No Knot Club does not currently offer our products/services to individuals located in Europe, our website does not explicitly target customers located in the EU nor do we monitor the behaviour of individuals in the EU.
