The General Data Protection Regulation (or GDPR) legislation was passed in the European Union (EU) in May 2016. It was passed with a two-year lead-in period and comes into full effect on 25 May 2018.
GDPR updates and replaces the European Data Protection directive of 1995 and the related Data Protection laws passed in individual EU territories. It is designed to reflect technological and social changes in the intervening period and strengthen the rights of individuals using social media, on-line financial services and so on, in the face of new techniques such as biometrics and profiling.
