You would have heard about the European Union Data Protection Regulation(GDPR) law that will take effect on May 25th 2018. The aim of this regulation is to give EU citizens the right to control what information is being collected from them by various businesses. GDPR will apply to the processing of personal data by controllers and processors in the EU, regardless of whether the processing takes place in the EU or not. GDPR will replace the prior EU directive known as Directive 95/46/EC (the “Directive”), which has been the basis of European data protection law since 1995.
