What is the GDPR (and why should I care)?

The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is a piece of legislation that is designed to strengthen and unify data protection laws for all individuals within the European Union.

For that reason, GDPR applies to any organization in the European Union that is processing personal data, as well as any organization that processes the personal data of EU data subjects, regardless of whether the organization has a presence in the European Union or whether the processing is conducted within the European Union.

If you collect, store, manage, or analyze personal data of any type, including email addresses, it is likely that the GDPR affects your organization.
