Privacy law in Italy has evolved significantly to ensure the protection of personal data, aligning with the stringent requirements of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that came into effect in May 2018 influencing national laws and practices. In Italy, these regulations are enforced by the Garante per la protezione dei dati personali (Italian Data Protection Authority), which oversees regulatory compliance and handles data protection issues. Companies operating in Italy must adhere to these regulations to protect individuals’ privacy rights and avoid substantial penalties.

The foundation of Italian privacy law is the Codice in materia di protezione dei dati personali (Data Protection Code), which incorporates GDPR principles and outlines specific national provisions. This legal framework mandates transparency, accountability, and the secure handling of personal data. Key aspects include obtaining explicit consent for data processing, ensuring data accuracy and security, and providing individuals with rights to access, correct, and delete their data.

Furthermore, businesses must appoint a Data Protection Officer (DPO) if they engage in large-scale data processing or handle sensitive data. The DPO is responsible for monitoring compliance, conducting data protection impact assessments (DPIAs), and serving as a point of contact between the company and the Garante.

Italian privacy law also emphasizes the importance of data minimization, requiring companies to collect only the data necessary for specified purposes. Data breaches must be reported promptly to the Garante, and affected individuals must be informed without undue delay if the breach poses a significant risk to their rights and freedoms.

The privacy law in Italy, underpinned by the GDPR, sets robust standards for data protection, ensuring that individuals’ privacy rights are safeguarded. Businesses operating in Italy must navigate this complex regulatory landscape to achieve compliance and foster trust with their clients and partners.
