General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)


In May 2016, the European Union (EU) published the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This legal framework revolutionizes the way that personal data are used and handled. It is a far-reaching legal instrument that will have a significant impact on all companies involved in the processing of personal data, including many outside the EU. 

It imposes obligations onto controllers and processors of personal data, so long as they collect and process personal data related to people in the EU. This course will provide an overview of the GDPR. Since the Regulation applies regardless of where websites are based, it must be heeded by all sites that attract European visitors, even if they don’t specifically market goods or services to EU residents.
