Vertmarkets and the GDPR
What is the GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) is a regulation intended to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union (EU). It also addresses the export of personal data outside the EU. It aims primarily to give control back to citizens and residents over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU. It impacts any organization that processes personal data in connection with goods/services offered to an EU resident. When the GDPR takes effect, it will replace the 1995 Data Protection Directive (Directive 95/46/EC). GDPR was adopted April 27, 2016 and becomes enforceable May 25, 2018.
