What is the GDPR?
“GDPR” stands for General Data Protection Regulation. The GDPR is the new regulation on data protection and replaces the older texts on this subject (Directive 95/46/EC and the Data Protection Act of 8 December 1992). The GDPR came into effect on 25 May 2018. Although the main principles of the GDPR are basically the same as those enshrined in earlier legislation, it does include several new elements as well (in relation to the rights data subjects enjoy and the obligations subcontracted processors are bound by, for instance).
