Education Ecosystem (LiveEdu) and the GDPR
What is the GDPR?
The GDPR is a regulation in European Union (EU) law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the EU. It took effect on the 25th of May, it replaced the 1995 Data Protection Directive. For European residents, the new regulations aim to increase their control over their personal data. For businesses, the GDPR applies anywhere in the world if it processes the personal data of anyone residing in the EU. It doesn’t matter if the company has no offices or employees in the EU, or even if no transactions are carried out in the EU. If you process an EU citizen’s personal data, then you need to comply with the GDPR.
