As we’ve said before, as more and more companies and browsers try to use your personal information to their advantage and to sell you more products, privacy is of the utmost importance these days.
With this comes GDPR compliancy. What is it? The General Data Protection Regulation is a policy set by the European Union (EU) that sets guidelines and limits the collecting of personal information from end users living in the EU. This prevents websites from collecting some of your personal information.
Even if the website is not based in or has no branches in the EU, it must comply to the EU standards for any individual living in the European Union.
GDPR forces websites to hand out data disclosures to EU visitors – websites must indicate that data is being collected and request that the end user consent to having said data be collected from them.
Other, more detailed information can be found here and here.
What this means for you is that data collected by companies that was previously a free-for-all is now being limited and you can choose to opt out (hopefully this spreads to other countries as well).
