What is the GDPR?

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is designed to  protect all EU citizens’ private data and reshape the way businesses across the region approach data protection. These new regulations affect all European organisations - not only those within the EU, but those that provide a service or collect data on any EU citizen. 

The GDPR enforcement date has now passed. As of May 25th 2018, any company not compliant with the new rules will face heavy fines (up to four percent of their annual global turnover).
