What is GDPR?

What is GDPR?

GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679that came into force on 24 May 2016 and is applicable from 25 May 2018 onwards.

For official documentation please check the official website of EU - https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/data-protection-eu_en.

From my point of view EU (European Union) has taken a visionary, bold and an exemplary step in creating a regulation that is so comprehensive for personal data protection of natural persons and free movement of data within the EU. GDPR provides more rights to all of us natural persons (data subjects).
