Does the GDPR affect non-EU businesses?

The GDPR came into effect on May 25th, 2018 changing the way businesses have to handle the information of residents, citizens, and visitors of the European Union (EU). The GDPR forces anyone that collects and processes personal information to be more transparent about what they are collecting and what they are doing with it.

While this is a law that has been put in place in the EU, it affects businesses all over the world. If your company has no European presence, you still need to be GDPR compliant if there is a chance you collect or process personal information of persons located within the EU.

With the GDPR now in effect, it is essential to your business that you comply with all of its rules and regulations. If you have any questions about the GDPR, you can check out these articles in the HostPapa Knowledge Base:
