What is GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is important new legislation in the area of data protection. Developed by the European Union, it’s designed to strengthen individuals’ rights regarding the collection, use and storage of their personal data.

The law applies to businesses or organisations in the European Union. Those outside the EU who offer goods and services (whether paid or not) to people living within the EU, or monitor their behavior, must also comply.

In effect, GDPR has become the global standard for data protection.
