We still do, however they are only concerned with the registration of those who hold and process personal data and their failure to protect such data. So expect AVG to be fully compliant: They will have declared the 'personal' data they will be collecting and processing, they will have explicitly asked for your consent for them to collect and retain such data. They have provided a means for you to exercise your rights. Hence the only additional obligation they have is to keep such data secure...
