May 25, 2018, is an important date for every company’s calendar-it’s the day when GDPR comes into force. The new EU regulation made a lot of fuzz in legal and business circles because it considerably changes the rules of the game.

The European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive (DPD), and a massive change in data privacy regulation is about to take place. GDPR will set new rules and strict requirements regarding consumer data: the way it is collected, used, transferred, stored, and protected between 3rd party businesses and entities.
