What does it mean

GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) or the general regulation on the protection of personal data. It is a regulation of the European Union that regulates and replaces the previous law on personal data protection.

The protection of natural persons in relation to the processing of personal data is among the fundamental human rights. The most important is the respect for private and family life or the preservation of sensitive information about others.
