Thomas International and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Introduction

On May 25th 2018, the European Union’s (EU) new data protection laws, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), comes into effect. It will be the most significant change in data protection legislation to date and will impact organisations that process personal data to an EU resident in relation to goods or services, or monitors the online behaviour of persons within the EU. The introduction of the GDPR will strengthen an individual’s privacy rights with stronger limits on the processing of their personal data. Giving them more control by improving and expanding their rights over their data, and providing increased transparency into the purpose and use of it.
