What Is GDPR? 

The General Data Protection Regulation is a major step in digital privacy and is the result of a long process settled in European values. The 99 legal articles in the Regulation aim at strengthening laws on data protection, thereby giving EU citizens control over their personal data, while emphasising the ideas of freedom, security and equality within the European Union.
