What is GDPR?
GDPR is a law that exists to protect the individual from abusive and intrusive practices, both in the information targeted to them, and the information solicited and collected from them. Long story short, GDPR helps keep your personally identifiable information (PII) private and puts regulations in place to make sure you, the individual, have full visibility into how your information and data is being used.
