After a transition period of 2 years the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) shall enter into force on May 25th of 2018, and thereby replace the current Belgian privacy law.

The GDPR guards the protection of personal data and implies various rights and obligations for the data subject, the data processor and the data controller. 

For research data the rights and obligations of the GDPR are part of a bigger picture: the research data management policy of Hasselt University. Research data may include personal data and the researcher must oblige the GDPR througout his research data management. Good research data management should also observe other legal, ethical and integrity principles besides the GDPR.

Here you will find some indicative questions regarding the processing of personal data.
