You may have recently heard about GDPR, which stands for General Data Protection Regulation. GDPR is a privacy law in the European Union that goes into effect on May 25, 2018. Its purpose is to give EU citizens more control over their personal data. It applies to all organizations offering goods and services in Europe, whether the organization is located in Europe or not. It extends the scope of EU data protection to foreign companies processing data of EU residents and applies to organizations with a website interacting with European residents.
