#EUelections2019 - Data Protection

On Friday 25 May 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force.

MEPs approved the regulation in 2016, in order to provide universal and high-level data protection rules across the EU.  GDPR will ensure that everyone is able to control what kind of personal data they share with companies and for which purposes.
