On May 25th 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation takes effect in the EU.
SO… WHAT IS GDPR AND HOW DOES IT AFFECT YOU?
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new data protection law, which will replace the existing EU laws. It aims to strengthen the protection of “personal data” paying particular attention to the way that data is now used and shared through internet and cloud technologies.
The EU wants to give people more control over how their data is used, whilst making a simpler, clearer a legal framework for organisations who manage, control and process people’s data.
