Privacy & GDPR
GDPR General Data Protection Regulation
GDPR is the General Data Protection Regulation. This comes into force on Friday 25th May 2018. This is a regulation by which the European Commission intends to strengthen and unify data protection for individuals within the European Union (EU). It also addresses export of personal data outside the EU. The main purpose of the legislation is to regulate businesses selling to consumers and not so much business to business activity where personal data is not generally held, but still has to be addressed.
