What is the GDPR?

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

The GDPR’s focus is the protection, collection and management of personal data, i.e. data about individuals, and it applies to all companies and organisations in the EU who hold or otherwise process personal data. This includes sole traders of people in EU member states and even companies outside the EU that offer goods or services to the individuals in the EU or who monitor their behaviour there.
