The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force for all countries in the EU on 25 May 2018 and also applies to all websites that are visited by a citizen of a country that is in the EU, regardless of where in the world the website is located.
It’s all about tightening up data protection legislation and makes sure that anyone who visits a website has the right to not only see what data any website has on them, but also gives them (you) the right to have that data deleted or amended without any cost.
This is actually not a bad thing, especially in light of the recent Facebook personal data scandal, with Cambridge Analytica allegedly harvesting personally identifiable information of up to 87 million Facebook users (and maybe more). I wouldn’t be surprised if more countries start to adopt and implement GDPR to protect their own citizens.
