The General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR is a European Union regulation that is aimed at protecting personal data of EU citizens. It replaces the existing Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and comes into effect on May 25, 2018. GDPR consolidates the data privacy laws across the EU region into one single regulation.
Any company, be it EU or non-EU based, which processes personal data of EU individuals comes under the scope of GDPR. For more details on the EU's GDPR, visit: https://gdpr.eu/
