The EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (“GDPR”) is effective from May 25th, 2018. The GDPR aims to strengthen the security and protection of personal data in the EU and harmonize EU data protection law. This new law will replace the EU Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC, as well as the local laws relating to it.
The GDPR applies to companies, both inside and outside of the EU, that collect and process personal data of EU citizens. Personal data means any information relating to an individual that can be used to directly or indirectly identify that individual including name, identification number, or online identifiers.
