General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

What is GDPR?

GDPR is an acronym for General Data Protection Regulation. In 2012, the European Union (EU) started a digital reform to create new standards for internet and technology advancements. By 2018, the EU established the GDPR in order to protect individuals’ personal data.


The GDPR is considered the core of Europe’s digital privacy legislation. GDPR requirements govern the collection, processing, consent, and distribution of personal information to ensure that EU citizens have more control over their own data.


The data protection policies created by the GDPR are designed to put consumers first. Compliance with regulations falls entirely on the businesses and organisations. The impact of the GDPR expands outside of the EU. Any goods or services provided to EU citizens are subject to GDPR and must comply.
