GDPR

General Data Protection Regulation

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a uniform legislation across the EU which enforces European data protection rules and regulations and the right to personal data protection. These regulations and requirements focus on how personal data, which is any information relating to an identifiable person, who can be directly or indirectly identified, is collected, recorded, stored and distributed.

Through the GDPR consumers/clients have more control over their personal data, either by providing clear and unambiguous consent following a well-defined privacy policy, as well as a right to withdraw consent at any time.
