What is the General Data Protection Regulation? (GDPR)
The GDPR is a new regulation by which the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union and the European Commission intend to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union, aiming to give control back to citizens and residents over their personal data.
The GDPR comes into effect from 25th May 2018.
