The EU Parliament approved new privacy regulations on 14 April 2016. This directive, commonly referred to as “GDPR” (General Data Protection Regulation), expands upon the already existing protections offered under Directive 95/46/EC, and will be enforced as of 25 May 2018. The objective of this directive is to further protect the privacy of EU citizens. The spirit of these regulations is simple, it is your data – with "privacy by design" you decide how and when your data will be used.
