1. What does the use of personal data mean for the customer?

2. What  risks will the use of personal data pose to the fundamental rights of individuals?

With the rapid growth in data storage solutions, many organisations no longer see data retention as a high-cost item. The temptation to retain all things data is so strong and with greater access to technology due to reduced costs, perpetual retention of both manual and electronic data may be perceived as convenient and not necessarily expedient as it involves “a lot work”. But with this comes increased exposure to the risk of data loss, unauthorised access, and ultimately, reputational damage. Retaining data indefinitely without a legal basis or justification can constitute an infringement under GDPR can attract fines.
