The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a EU law that regulates data privacy. This aims to improve the privacy of EU citizens and how companies protect EU citizens’ personal data. This came into effect on 25th May 2018.
In the growing digital economy, it is important that people are given greater control and know they have control over how their personal information is used. It was introduced to standardise data protection law across the single market.
It aims to harmonise the data protection regulations throughout the EU to make it easier for non-European companies to comply with these regulations who process personal data and operate within or sell goods to the EU are impacted by the GDPR.
The GDPR primarily aims to give control of personal data back to citizens and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU. Ipsotek Ltd is committed to ensuring that our platforms is GDPR compliant.
