What is GDPR?
As of May 25th 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect. GDPR is a European Union data privacy regulation that consolidates and enhances existing regulations across the EU.
Even though this is regulated within the EU, it impacts business here in New Zealand. If your website offers goods or services to EU citizens it is important that you comply with the regulation changes. The penalty for non compliance is $34 million NZD or 4% of worldwide revenue.
