What is the GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new European legal framework that took effect on May 25, 2018.

The GDPR’s focus is the protection, collection, and management of personal data (i.e., data held on individuals); it applies to all companies and organizations in the European Union (EU) who hold or otherwise process personal data (including sole traders) on individuals residing in EU Member States, and even companies outside the EU that offer goods or services to EU residents or that monitor their local behavior.
