More info

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy in the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA).

The GDPR aims primarily to give control back to citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU.

 

The GDPR applies to all organizations that process the personal data of individuals located in the European Economic Area (EEA), regardless of the organization's location. The GDPR also applies to organizations that process the personal data of individuals who are not located in the EEA, if the organization offers goods or services to individuals located in the EEA or monitors their behaviour as far as their behaviour takes place within the EEA.

The GDPR is current law within the UK.
