The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on 25th May 2018 and aims to provide consistency and standardisation for EU Member States on the processing and use of personal data.
Any organisation that holds, collects or uses customer data for their marketing or business communications needs to be GDPR compliant. Even non EU-based sites and businesses are affected.
GDPR is the most important change for data privacy regulation in 20 years.
What is GDPR?
GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation and it is a new data protection law in the EU, which comes into force on the 25th of May 2018. The aim of the GDPR is to give citizens of the EU control over their personal data, and change the approach of organisations across the world towards data privacy. The GDPR provides much stronger rules than existing laws and is much more restrictive than the “EU cookie law.”
