The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force across the European Union on 25th May 2018 replacing the data protection framework under the EU Data Protective Directive. This regulation has been implemented in all local privacy laws across the entire EU and EEA region. With GDPR, citizens have greater control over their personal data and ensure that their information is being protected across Europe.

According to the GDPR directive, personal data is any information related to a person such as a name, photo, email address, updates on social networking sites, location details, bank details, medical information, or even a personal computer’s IP address.
