On 25th May 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), (EU) 2016/679 came into direct legal effect. GDPR can be described as ‘technology neutral’ and the focus is firmly on accountability, responsibility and transparency in all business transactions.
The GDPR harmonises data protection and privacy for all individuals within the EU, in addition to enhancing their rights as it gives a greater degree of control over personal data.
