A case study in GDPR Article 3 and supporting recitals: Why not get ready for the GDPR (or other global-reaching DP laws) to apply to your non-EU business?
In the Gulf Cooperation Council region (the GCC), a growing global business hub, the applicability of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is undeniable, as it is in most jurisdictions. There are, however, a fair few businesses that directly control and process EU personal data that are not yet clear on their obligations under the GDPR. This paper explores applicability under Article 3 in particular. It also contains an interview with the Dubai International Financial Center Data Protection Commissioner, who enforces data protection regulations of this federal free zone in Dubai. If your Middle Eastern business (or subsidiary) is not sure whether to prepare for the GDPR, this paper will help clarify any remaining questions in that regard.
