What is GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) is a privacy and data protection regulation in the European Union (EU) and will be enforceable from May 25 2018 and requires no enabling legislation so automatically becomes binding and applicable on that date.
The GDPR imposes new obligations on organisations that control or process relevant personal data and introduces new rights and protections for EU data subjects
The GDPR applies to data processing carried out by organisations operating within the EU. It also applies to organisations outside the EU that offer goods or services to individuals in the EU.
