The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation by which the European Union (EU) intends to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the EU.
GDPR codifies data protection rules for all companies that collect data from EU citizens. It expands individuals’ control over how and when their personal data is collected and used.
This regulation comes into effect on May 25, 2018 and will have an impact on many businesses around the world.
