General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) - anyone preparing plugins?

Is some one, by any chance, planing on writing any specific plugins considering the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)  implementation, happening this very May?

You can read more about GDPR here -> GDRP.


Short summary can be found below (I got that from our Legal Department):

The aim of the GDPR is to protect all EU citizens from privacy and data breaches in an increasingly data-driven world

We must ensure the possibility to carry out the data subject rights e.g.:

·         Right to Access (the right for data subjects to obtain from the data controller confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning them is being processed, where and for what purpose. Further, the controller shall provide a copy of the personal data, free of charge, in an electronic format. This change is a dramatic shift to data transparency and empowerment of data subjects.

Right to be Forgotten (the right to be forgotten entitles the data subject to have the data controller erase his/her personal data, cease further dissemination of the data, and potentially have third parties halt processing of the data. The conditions for erasure, as outlined in article 17, include the data no longer being relevant to original purposes for processing, or a data subjects withdrawing consent. It should also be noted that this right requires controllers to compare the subjects' rights to "the public interest in the availability of the data" when considering such requests.)

Data Portability ( the right for a data subject to receive the personal data concerning them, which they have previously provided in a 'commonly use and machine readable format' and have the right to transmit that data to another controller).
