NewsBox and the EU GDPRNewsBox and the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
Data PrivacyData privacy notice - journalists and others.
On May 25, 2018, the European Union GDPR came into effect. The new law updated data protection requirements to improve the way organizations handle and protect personal data, taking into consideration the growing amount of data, data collection and data storage methods.
As with many new laws, core principles are unchanged but the definition of personal data and expanded the reach to affect any company, even those outside the European Union, that collects personal information of individuals in the European Union.
