The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect on May 26th, 2018.
These new regulations govern how individuals and companies are allowed to share personal data, and the rights of consumers to protect their data. The GDPR primarily relates to countries in the EU but its provisions are applicable more widely and constitute a sensible way to manage privacy for web users.
