It’s one of the biggest data privacy laws in over 20 years. The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will go into effect on May 25, 2018. These regulations will impact businesses that utilize personal data of EU citizens, even if the company does not have a physical presence in Europe. This means that the GDPR will be applicable for US websites as well.
If you are a US company with a website and you receive traffic from European Union visitors, regardless whether you market your products or services to European markets, listen up.
Here’s what every US business needs to know about the new data privacy rules, GDPR requirements and deadlines.
