What is the EU GDPR?

The EU General Data Protection Regulation - or GDPR - refers to the privacy rights of EU citizens.

The regulation grants EU citizens the right to request access, correction and/or deletion of any personal data held by any given company.

 

There are 3 key roles under the GDPR: 

  • Data Subjects are the owners of the data collected. 
  • Data Controllers are the entities controlling the collected data. 
  • Data Processors are sub-contractors helping the Data Controllers deliver a service to the Data Subjects.
