As of 25th May 2018, the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), a regulation with which the European Commission wants to protect the personal data of EU citizens, comes into force.
Through the GDPR, the European Commission wants to give citizens full control of their personal data and make the privacy legislation homogeneous within the EU.
The GDPR was created to simplify the rules concerning the transfer of personal data from the EU to other parts of the world. The regulation requires even those who have their registered office outside the EU but work with residents within it to comply with the obligations under the regulation.
It is a necessary response to the challenge posed by technological developments and new patterns of economic growth.
