What is GDPR?
The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), is a regulation designed to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union, effective from May 25th 2018. If you handle or process the data of any person in the EU, GDPR will apply to you whether you’re located in the EU or not.
The regulation means a person will have more rights, freedom, and control over how their data is used. It also includes requirements in regards to how this data is stored.
