What is GDPR?
GDPR is a new EU regulation that’s aimed at strengthening data protection for citizens of the European Union. GDPR is short for General Data Protection Regulation, which aims to change the way businesses capture, use and manage data. This regulation is aimed to give people more control over the information about them that can be captured and used.
Essentially, the regulation says that if you want to do business with people in the EU, you need to ensure you take care of their personal data.
