What is the GDPR?

The GDPR is a new comprehensive data protection law in the EU that updates existing laws to strengthen the protection of personal data. It replaces the patchwork of national data protection laws currently in place with a single set of rules, directly enforceable in each EU member state. It is effective from May 25, 2018. EU residents will now have greater say over what, how, why, where, and when their personal data is used, processed, or disposed. This rule clarifies how the EU personal data laws apply even beyond the borders of the EU. Any organization that works with EU residents' personal data in any manner, regardless of location, has obligations to protect the data. We fully understands this, so we collects as little personal data as possible and safeguard it as well as we can.

Who does the GDPR apply to?

The GDPR applies to all organizations operating in the EU or processing "personal data" of EU and Switzerland residents.

What data does the GDPR apply to?

Under the GDPR, the concept of "personal data" is very broad and covers any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual (also called a "data subject"). Personal Data is anything that you could conceivably use to identify a person within a larger group. That includes names, addresses, emails, IP addresses, cookies, locations etc.
