General Data

Protection Regulation


GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation and refers to the European Union regulation for data protection for all individuals within the European Union. The regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679)2 became enforceable on 25 May 2018 and replaced the data protection directive (officially Directive 95/46/EC)3 from 1995.

Who does it affect?

Any individual or organization that stores or processes personal information on an identifiable person from an EU member state (regardless if the processing or storage of information occurs in the EU or not). It also applies if the individual or organization themselves is located in an EU member state.
