What’s it all about?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new landmark privacy regulation that applies as of 25 May 2018. It’s being called the world's strictest data privacy law and it aims to expand and unify data protection rights of individuals in the EU.

The GDPR has unprecedented extraterritorial reach and can apply to your non-EU business.

Does the GDPR apply to your non-EU company?

  • Do you offer goods or services to individuals in the EU (for payment or for free)? and/or
  • Do your monitor the behaviour of individuals in the EU (such as tracking or profiling)?
