What is GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) aims to increase the protection applied to the personal data of EU citizens. It requires organisations that collect or process that personal data to meet a much stricter set of rules than before.

The GDPR took effect on 25 May 2018.
