What is GDPR?

GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation, a regulation on Data Privacy (data protection) that is applied to all companies in the world that store, process or process personal data from 28 countries that are members of the EU (European Union).

One thing is certain, this regulation has been approved by European authorities since April 2016 and will be effective throughout the world on May 25, 2018.

The main function of GDPR is to provide control to consumers on their personal data collected by the company.

Among them:

  • Basic information such as name, address and ID number
  • Web data such as location, IP address, cookies and RFID
  • Health and genetic data
  • Biometric data
  • Ethnic and racial data
  • Political opinion
  • Sexual orientation

GDPR is not only influential for companies or entities in Europe, but also applies to companies in the world that offer goods or services, or that monitor the behavior of residents from the European Union.

This is the reason why GDPR has a very wide impact, especially in the online world that does not recognize territorial or territorial boundaries.

GDPR Violation Sanctions

As a rule, of course there are consequences for those who do not comply. Here are the sanctions:

An organization that violates the GDPR law will be fined up to 4% of the total annual turnover or 20 million euros, whichever is greater.
