COURSEWORK 3 The change of the rules from DPA to GDPR have also strengthen the conditions for consent, therefore PhysioBest has to comply. It is important to update the staffs of PhysioBest that under GDPR they will no longer use long illegible terms and conditions, because the consent must be provided in an understandable way and easily accessible form, which a clear reason as to why they are processing the data included in the consent form. Moreover, under GDPR, the staffs of PhysioBest will have to use a clear and a plain language in the consent. The change of the data processing policy under GDPR advocates for data transparency and empowerment of the data subjects. As such, the PhysioBest’s clients will have rights for the data subjects.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
