In May, Internet users in Europe were flooded by emails from organisations telling them of changes in their data protection arrangements or asking them to renew consent to hold and use their data. Was this spam? No. It was the result of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – new European Union (EU) rules to govern how governments, businesses, charities and others can use the data individuals provide them with, and the inferences that they make from them.
APC welcomes the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which is the most significant step in recent history towards enhancing people's privacy and giving them greater control over their personal information.
