I. What is GDPR?

GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation. GDPR sets guidelines around collecting and processing personal information from people who live in the European Union (EU). It applies to personal data, which is any information relating to a person that can be identified (directly or indirectly), and gives individuals power over the use of their personal data.

GDPR, Article 4, defines personal data as follows:

  • ‘personal data’ means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person;
