GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is a new EU Regulation and is a law on data protection and privacy for all individuals citizens within the European Union (EU). The GDPR gives control back to individuals over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment. It is a regulation, not a directive and it forces all countries within EU to implement GDPR by May 25, 2018.
The regulation builds on many of the requirements from the 1995 directive for data privacy and security but includes new provisions to strengthen the rights of data subjects, the individuals whose personal data is processed, and it adds harsher penalties for companies and organizations that fail to comply with the regulation.
Vortex FDC has its main establishment in Barcelona, España.
