European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

In short, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves to provide citizens and residents with enhanced control and security regarding their personal data. Personal data is taken to mean any information relating to an individual, such as names, addresses, emails, etc. GDPR is a regulation under European law. The regulation provides for data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union and the European Economic Area. As you will probably be aware, the UK is scheduled to leave the EU in 2019 and in preparation for this, equivalent protections have been built into the UK Data Protection Act 2018.

The Information Commissioner's Office in the UK has a wealth of information and guidance. The section written for the general public, titled 'Your data matters' is concise, well-written, and a good place to start. The European Commission also publish an informative fact sheet.
