This chapter examines the law on data protection and data exclusivity. It focuses on the new GDPR Regulation. It covers rules on lawful processing of personal data, on the security of the processing, on the transparency of the processing, and on promoting compliance. It also discusses the rights of the data subject, the transfer of personal data to third countries, and the period of data exclusivity granted to the pharmaceutical sector independent of any form of patent protection.
