What is GDPR?
In 2016 the European Union adopted the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a regulation replacing the previous privacy directive (Directive 95/46/EC), in an attempt to improve and strengthen data protection law in the European Union and enhance the rights and freedoms of an individual with regards to their personal data and how it may be used by third parties.
