What is the GDPR
On May 25, 2018, The European Union enforces a new data privacy law, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). A primary aim of the GDPR is to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens data privacy and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach it.
Any company that collects or processes personal data of persons in the EU falls under the scope of the GDPR, even if the company has no physical presence in the European Union. This means that most businesses with a global or online presence, including Offer18 customers are affected.
