What is GDPR?

GDPR stands for General Data Protections Regulation.

The General Data Protections Regulation (GDPR) are new rules designed to protect all personal data belonging to citizens within the EU. The GDPR was put in motion by The Council of the European Union, European Parliament, and European Commission in efforts to provide citizens with greater levels of transparency and control over their personal data, who has access to it, and how it is being used.
