Abstract

The purpose of this study is to examine some aspects of personal data protection in the social network, a comparative analysis of the protection of personal data in the social network under Ukrainian and European legislation, namely the General Data Protection Regulation of the European Union. The methods used in this work are: dialectical, comparative-legal, formal-logical, analysis and dogmatic interpretation. Each of these methods was used in the study to understand and qualitatively explain to the audience categories the individual aspects of personal data protection on the social network. This article reveals the notion of: personal data in the social network, the features of their collection, storage and protection in accordance with European legislation and the development of proposals aimed at improving these processes in Ukraine. The research also addresses the following issues: Features of managing consent to the processing of personal data that have already been obtained; who can act as an "operator" under EU law and what actions he can take; who can act as "controller" and what functions it performs. The article concludes that there is an urgent need to streamline Ukrainian domestic legislation in line with EU law, which should result in a new law on personal data protection that complies with GDPR norms. As a result, a new law on personal data protection may soon emerge in Ukraine, replacing the outdated Law of Ukraine “On Personal Data Protection” of 01.06.2010, which is a “mirror” of   the repealed Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council.
