General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) overview
The General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR is an evolution in data protection, not a total revolution formulated by the European Parliament, the European Commission, and the Council of the European Union.
The main aim of the regulation has been to unify as well as strengthen online data protection for all users within the European Union. The regulations are intended for those who are responsible for overall data protection of the users. The GDPR will apply in the United Kingdom from 25th May, 2018 and UK’s decision to part with the EU is not going to affect GDPR implementation.
GDPR and Areas of application
Exclusion of GDPR
There are certain situations where the General Data Protection Regulation does not apply. Processing covered by the Law Enforcement Directive, carried out by users for complete personal or household activities, and for national security reasons are excluded from the new legal framework.
