About the GDPR

On 25 May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU 2016/679) (‘GDPR’)) went into effect. The GDPR is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy in the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA). It also addresses the transfer of personal data outside the EU and EEA areas. The GDPR aims primarily to give control to individuals over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU.

Territorial Scope of the GDPR

The GDPR applies to organizations that have a presence in the EU, notably entities that have an “establishment” in the EU.

Therefore, the GDPR applies to the processing of personal data by organizations established in the EU, regardless of whether the processing takes place in the EU or not. In relation to the extraterritorial scope, the GDPR applies to the processing activities of organizations that are not established in the EU, where processing activities are related to the offering of goods, or services to individuals in the EU.
