What is GDPR and how does it affects us?

Yesterday, a new European privacy regulation called The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which came into effect on May 25, 2018. The law is a replacement for the 1995 Data Protection Directive, which has until now set the minimum standards for processing data in the EU. GDPR will significantly strengthen a number of rights: - Individuals will find themselves with more power to demand companies reveal or delete the personal data they hold. - Regulators will be able to work in concert across the EU for the first time, rather than having to launch separate actions in each jurisdiction, and their enforcement actions will have real teeth, with the maximum fine now reaching the higher of €20m (£17.5m) or 4% of the company’s global turnover. * SoloLearn had also updated it's privacy policy: https://www.sololearn.com/privacy-policy/ Feel free to share anything related to GDPR.
