    Brexit Postponed, Not Cancelled - How to Keep Sharing Data After Brexit?

    Nov 15, 2019 10:07:16 AM / by Timelex posted in EU, DPO, Data Protection Officer, Data Transfer, International Data Transfer, International GDPR, GDPR Reputation, GDPR For Tech Companies, gdpr, gdpr 2019, Europe, Brexit, Britain

    The EU agreed to further postpone Brexit until 31 January 2020, the so-called “withdrawal date”. Before such date there will be parliamentary elections in the UK on 12 December 2019.

    In terms of data protection, the UK will eventually become a third country in case of a Brexit, meaning that an organisation established in the EEA should implement an adequate data transfer mechanism to share personal data with other organisations in the UK, such as other group offices or service providers. The new postponement gives companies some extra time to look at the possible data transfer mechanisms for implementation after the withdrawal date. Even in case of yet another postponement thereof, sooner or later the UK will become a third country.

    In this blog, Timelex will explain the data transfer possibilities in more detail.

    A Cautionary Tale: The Brief Look Into the Future of Personalisation

    It’s a rainy Thursday morning and I’ve just got into my driverless cab. I’d usually miss it, but because the cab now knows the average time I take to get ready, there is no actual way I could miss one. It knows where I need to go, what time I need to be there and also the preferred route I want, all through a 0.2 second scan of my thumb’s fingerprint. During my ride, I listen to the playlist made for me specially for this Thursday. It was made instantly as I typed in the first two words that came to my mind this morning. It can be any literally any word, isn’t that fun? It knows what music I want to listen to, the length of the songs I like, the mix of genres I prefer, and it also predicts the exact moments I would get bored of the song and automatically removes it from the playlist - only to replace it with an absolute banger of a song I was thinking about giving a listen to.

    Back in June, the UK’s Data Protection Authority (ICO) released statements on their stance in regards to ad tech, saying: “If you operate in the adtech space, it’s time to look at what you’re doing now, and to assess how you use personal data” (Simon McDougall, Executive Director for Technology and Innovation at ICO).
