GDPR (GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATIONS)
GDPR will replace the Data Protection Act 1998, which was brought into law as a way to implement the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive. GDPR seeks to give people more control over how organisations use their personal data and to ensure that data protection law is almost identical across the EU. The change took place on the 25th May 2018. The GDPR deems that any data which can be used to identify an individual is classed as personal data. It includes, genetic, mental, cultural, economic or social information. The GDPR also brings a new set of “digital rights” for EU citizens to protect against the growing value of personal data in the digital economy.
