The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a data privacy law that came into effect in the European Union in 2018. Its main goal is to help protect people's personal data and give them more control over how it's used. This law applies to any business that collects or processes personal data of EU citizens, no matter where they are in the world. To be compliant, businesses have to get people's consent before collecting their data and put in place measures to keep that data safe from any unauthorized access. It's all about keeping our personal information secure!
The GDPR is applicable to stores that operate within the European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA), United Kingdom (UK), and Switzerland and process personal data. Additionally, the regulation also applies to organizations located outside of these regions that offer goods or services to individuals within the EU, EEA, UK, and Switzerland and process their personal data.
