A new regulation, GDPR
(General Data Protection Regulation), is ramping up the obligations of companies towards their clients and users. Since the 25th of May 2018, all companies storing your personal data will be required to inform you better about your rights and obtain your consent to use them.
Companies will have one (1) month to reply to your requests concerning the management, security and use of your personal data. Companies failing to do so, or who use your data abusively, run the risk of fines up to 20 million Euros, or 4% of their global sales figure.
