What is the GDPR?
The GDPR, or General Data Protection Regulation, is a European privacy law that went into effect in May 2018. It regulates how personal data of individuals in the EU can be collected, used, and processed. The law impacts European companies and any business that targets European individuals or collects, uses, or processes the personal data of European individuals regardless of where the business is located. Essentially, this means the GDPR will apply to most organizations that process personal data of EU individuals—regardless of where they are established and regardless of where their processing activities take place.
