The GDPR – General Data Protections Regulation – has been introduced to harmonise the rules about the processing of personal data in EU and to provide citizens with a greater level of control over their personal data. It applies to all the businesses operating within the EU, regardless of physical location, and/or processing EU citizens’ personal data.
With personal data it refers to all the details that can be used to determine someone’s identity, like:
- Email address
- Social media posts
- Personal medical information
- IP addresses
- Bank details
Please make sure that you and your Teams are familiar with the key requirements of this important regulation.
