What is GDPR?
The acronym GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation. The GDPR regulates the processing of personal data within the European Union.
This new European regulation follows on from the French Data Protection Act of 1978 and strengthens citizens' control over the use that can be made of their data.
It harmonises the rules in Europe by providing a single legal framework for professionals. It allows them to develop their digital activities within the EU on the basis of user trust.
