Since Directive 95/46 / EC came into force, all the European standards concerning protection of personal data are harmonized, so that their circulation is facilitated, in particular for commercial purposes.
The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR, Regulation 2016/679 of 27 April 2016) entered into force on 25 May 2018. It cancelled out the 1995 Directive. It set up new obligations and heavy penalties that could reach up to several millions euros.
Since all the parties involved in personal data protection, inside and outside of the European Union, are responsible for personal data protection, the issue concerns all transactions, in all sectors, in all geographical locations.
