General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR has today come into force, after years of planning, to ensure Europe is ready for the digital age and to protect privacy.

The main reasons for introducing the new legislation is to give EU citizens more control over their data, and have more say over their personal information, privacy and consent. Under the new terms it is vital for organisations to ensure that data is gathered lawfully and under strict conditions, it must be protected from misuse and data owners preferences respected.

Due to the changes implemented, you may find you may need to make changes to your website and ecommerce platforms in order to comply with the new rules.
