You may have heard about the new General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR that will come into effect on May 25, 2018. The GDPR is a regulation in the European Union (EU ) legislation on data protection and privacy for all people within the European Union.
The GDPR aims primarily to give control to citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU.
The GDPR not only applies to those companies or institutions located in the EU but also extends the scope of data protection legislation to all foreign companies that process data from EU residents.
To whom does the new GDPR regulation apply?
- Organizations with physical presence in at least one member country of the European Union.
- Organizations that process or store data about individuals residing in the European Union.
- Organizations that use third-party services that process or store information about individuals residing in the European Union.
That is why the Observatory, always concerned about the protection and privacy of the data of our readers and readers, has put in place the necessary measures to comply with this new regulation.
