The GDPR, or General Data Protection Regulation, is an EU privacy law that took effect in 2018. It helps protect the personal data and privacy rights of individuals in the EU by having a number of robust requirements around displaying a Privacy Policy, facilitating user rights, only collecting personal data for specific purposes, obtaining adequate consent when necessary, and taking steps to secure data and handle data breaches in a compliant way.
