What is GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679 is a new regulation that governs the data privacy rights of individuals within the European Union. The GDPR aims primarily to give control to EU residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU.
GDPR was adopted on April 14th, 2016 and went into effect May 25th, 2018.
