The GDPR came into effect on May 25th, 2018 changing the way businesses have to handle the information of residents, citizens, and visitors of the European Union (EU). The GDPR forces anyone that collects and processes personal information to be more transparent about what they are collecting and what they are doing with it.
While this is a law that has been put in place in the EU, it affects businesses all over the world. If your company has no European presence, you still need to be GDPR compliant if there is a chance you collect or process personal information of persons located within the EU.
