EL PAÍS NEWSPAPER (Spain), 10th July 2018:

https://elpais.com/internacional/2018/07/10/actualidad/1531209808_417569.html

 

The respected Spanish newspaper reported yesterday that Jehovah's Witnesses are not exempt from the European GDPR law.

This ties in with my other post about Hourglass and the need to inform people what you will do with their data.

 

The law requires you to inform the householder what data you will be noting down about them. This is why the old S-8 forms were discontinued for not-at-homes and return visits. Now it seems that even private notes are coming under fire.

"El RGPD se aplica con independencia de que los datos se capten en el entorno físico o en internet. Hay que dejar muy claro que su protección afecta al honor y a la intimidad de las personas y que se basa en su consentimiento, especialmente en el caso de los datos más protegidos, como son los relativos a creencias religiosas", aclara el experto en derecho digital Borja Adsuara."

Basically translated: "The RGPD applies regardless of whether the data is captured in person or via the internet. It must be made very clear that its scope has to do with protecting the honor and privacy of individuals and that it is based on their consent, especially with highly protected data, such as data related to religious beliefs", says digital rights expert Borja Adsuara.
