GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) Compliance

What is GDPR?

GDPR is a European privacy law approved by the European Commission in 2016 which is designed to unify and regulate EU residents’ control of their personal data. It is set to replace Directive 95/46/EC and will be enforced by May 25, 2018.

What does it mean for everyone?

It is also important that you update your site's Privacy Policy to cover all personal information that are being collected through your site.
