What is GDPR?
If you haven't already heard... The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new EU regulation aimed at strengthening data protection for EU citizens and residents both within the EU and the wider world. Essentially, it says to businesses “If you want to offer your services or products to customers who are EU citizens, you better make sure you look after their personal data, or else!”.
Anyone who collects and processes personal data (defined by the GDPR as a Data Controller) will be required to comply with the new regulations. As well as organisations who run websites or apps, this also includes any organisations who use internal databases, CRM's or even just email!
When will it come into force?
The GDPR replaces the data protection directive from 1995. It was adopted on 27th April 2016 and comes in to force on 25th May 2018. Avoid the risk of heavy fines from the government. Make your website compliant with EU regulations!
