What is GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) is a regulation by which the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union, and the European Commission intend to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union (EU). It aims to primarily give control back to citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU.
