The Editorial Board of the RSRR invites submissions for the RSRR Blog Series on the theme “An Analysis Of Standard Clauses Related To Data Protection”.
In the continuation of the Data Protection Series, the Editorial Board of RSRR has sought to dig deeper on the topic of Data Protection. The First Issue aimed at gauging a more general understanding and comparison of data protection laws, whereas, through this issue we target more specific areas which the data protection framework touches/encompasses. There are certain standard clauses/provisions that are found in every Data Protection Law and Private Privacy Policies across the globe.
Through this issue we aim to study these standard provisions, the loopholes in them, the potential benefits and how they should be properly drafted. Other than protecting the civil liberties of individuals, a data protection regime touches the corporate sector in a multifarious manner, for instance, the compliance cost of running an enterprises increase, and particularly small companies face an increased financial burden due to the standards they have to meet as per the Data Protection law.
Moreover, a certain “chilling effect” is possible for companies, which are at the risk of facing huge amounts of fine due to data breach. Furthermore, data localization has been another conundrum which is being debated in the nascent Indian scenario. These topics are of utmost relevance in the current scenario, as the Legislature has a prepared draft of legislation on Data Protection, based on Justice B.N. Shrikrishna Report. Therefore, we expect original and novel posts which can add to the discourse of Data Protection.
