What is GDPR?

The European Commission approved the new General Data Protection Regulation in 2016. GDPR regulates the processing of personal data about individuals in the European Union. This includes how data is collected, stored, transferred and used. "Personal data" is defined very broadly, and covers any personal identifiable information such as email, name to their online IP Address.

GDPR helps by giving individuals better rights over their data, including the right to be forgotten or right to request a copy of personal data you might have collected about them. GDPR also requires that organizations think about and implement proper policies to protect personal data, and list what 3rd party vendors data might be sent to and how it's being used.

Why should I care about GDPR?

GDPR applies to any organization that processes personal data of individuals in the European Union. If your website accepts visitors or customers from the EU, you are most likely impacted by GDPR.
