European Union Data Protection Directive
In my previous articles, I have talked so much about Internet Laws. In this article, I want to talk about some of the facts that you need to know about the European Union Data Protection Directive. Follow me as we are going to look at that together in this article.
The European Union Data Protection Directive is also also known as 95/46/EC. The directive provides guidelines to the European Union members states for individual privacy and data protection. The directive regulates the processing of personal data regardless of whether such processing is automated or not.
Section 1 of the Directive provides the principles relating to data quality, section 2 provides criteria for making data processing legitimate and section 5 defines the data subject’s rg=ight of access to data.
According to section 1 of the directive, Member states shall provide that personal data must be collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and not further processed in any way incompatible with those purposes.
Section 2 states that member states shall guarantee every data subject the right to obtain from the controller without constraint at a reasonable interval and without excessive delays.

It protects people’s fundamental right and freedom and in particular their right to privacy with respect to the processing of personal data.
