What is GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a set of laws that was created to protect the personal data of European Union (EU) citizens. The Council of the European Union, European Parliament, and European Commission joined forces to help people have better control over their personal data.

Officially approved by European Parliament in 2016, the EU allowed a two-year grace period for companies and organizations to comply with the new regulations. Therefore, as of May 25, 2018, any business not complying with the new GDPR laws will be breaking the law.
