wHAT DOES GDPR stand for?
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
What is GDPR exactly?
The GDPR is Europe's new framework for data protection laws – it replaces the previous 1995 data protection directive. Europe is now covered by the world's strongest data protection rules. The mutually agreed General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force on May 25, 2018, and was designed to modernise laws that protect the personal information of individuals.
What did GDPR replace?
GDPR applies across the entirety of Europe but each individual country has the ability to make its own small changes. In the UK, the government has created a new Data Protection Act (2018) which replaces the 1998 Data Protection Act.
