The EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) is a legal regulation that came into force across the European Union on 25th May 2018. The new regulation aims to standardise data protection laws and processing across the EU, providing individuals with greater control over how their personal data is used, processed or disposed of. GDPR applies to any business that has customers in the European Union or that deals with any kind of personal data of EU Citizens.
