What is GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the European Union's new data protection guidelines for how businesses collect, process, and store private customer data.
Who does GDPR Affect?
The General Data Protection Regulation applies to any business or organization that operates in or has customers who are citizens of the European Union. Businesses that utilize third-party software and services to collect, process, and store data are also responsible for their compliance to GDPR. In other words, your business will not be compliant if the software your business uses is not compliant with the new regulations.
