The release goes on, “GDPR, in effect as of tomorrow, May 25, applies to any corporation, regardless of their location, that possesses the personal data of residents of the European Union. The regulations are designed to strengthen personal data privacy laws in the EU. Among the GDPR regulations includes a provision whereby individuals must agree to having their information used or invoke the “right to be forgotten” option. GDPR also gives regulators the power to fine offending organizations.
