The European Union’s (EU) General Data Protection Rule (GDPR) is a law that came into effect on May 25th, 2018, to protect the data privacy of citizens of EU countries.

GDPR calls for transparency on what data are being collected when people transact online, what they are being collected for, and how unnecessary (and questionable) data collection can be avoided. It also mandates substantial penalties for non-compliance with the regulation.
