The GDPR, Collecting Personal Data, and Updating Your Privacy Policy

he GDPR, Collecting Personal Data, and Updating Your Privacy Policy

The European General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, entered the scene in May of 2018 with the purpose of protecting the personal data of users and reducing the risk of security breaches and mishandling of personal data on the internet.

Before the GDPR came into effect, many companies would collect and store as much personal data as possible and keep it forever. Now, though, companies can’t keep or use any personal data unless they have the users’ consent or another legal basis to do so.

We’ll take a look at how the GDPR affects the collecting of personal data, and how this in turn affects your Privacy Policy.
