The Data Protection Committee (DPC) concerns itself with implementing the new EU GDPR regulations within the MPI for Psycholinguistics. It is tasked with applying German jurisdiction into an institution based in the Netherlands, and seeks to implement the regulations in such a way that it satisfies jurisdiction in both countries.
Working closely with the Data Protection officer from the Max Planck Society and, if applicable, with data protection officials from other Dutch institutions, the DPC seeks to implement the according policies.
The goal of the DPC is to inform employees about the latest developments concerning data protection, and to develop guidelines for best practices.
