What is the GDPR?
The EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (“GDPR”) is a new privacy regulation with comprehensive privacy and security requirements intended to strengthen and unify data protection for individuals within the European Union (“EU”).
The GDPR was adopted by the European Parliament in April 2016 and became effective on May 25, 2018, replacing the current EU Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and national data protection laws in the EU based on the Directive.
