What and When

On May 25, 2018, the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will take effect.  This regulation updates and replaces the long-standing 1995 Data Protection Directive.

The Purpose

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is designed to unify data privacy requirements across all 28 EU member states. It states that data subjects including end users, customers and employees have the right to make a claim if their data is not protected in compliance with the GDPR regulations. EU regulators have the right to impose fines for violations.

Who does GDPR apply to?

  • Companies established in the EU that process personal information.
  • Companies based outside the EU who offer goods or services directly to individuals in the EU or monitor behavior of individuals in the EU.
