The European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) seeks to provide data protection and privacy for citizens of the EU and the European Economic Area (EEA). The GDPR aims to give individuals the ability to control their personal data, while simplifying and unifying requirements for international businesses within the EU. It’s important to note that, even if your organization does not reside in the EU, the regulation may still apply.

Under the terms of the GDPR, organizations that collect and manage personal data have to establish that personal data is collected legally and under strict conditions. They are also required to protect the data from misuse or exploitation, as well as to respect the rights of data owners.


Any organization that either operates in the EU or provides goods or services to customers or business within the EU needs to comply with the GDPR.

While the GDPR regulates how companies protect EU citizens’ personal data, discussions continue in the United States regarding the potential for new, similar regulations in US privacy laws, such as those included in the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).
