Does the GDPR apply to your non-EU business?

Publication | May 2018

European organisations have been preparing for some time to comply with the European Union’s new data protection law, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which applies to all organisations in the EU. The GDPR replaces the Data Protection Directive and imposes additional obligations on organisations processing personal data of individuals. The deadline for compliance is 25 May 2018.

But did you know that the GDPR can also apply to organisations outside of the EU? If you want to find out whether the GDPR may apply to your non-EU business, chat to Parker – our GDPR chatbot.
