On 25 May, GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) was enforced, which resulted in Facebook and Google facing legal complaints and some US news sites blocked to EU users. 

GDPR deals with the issue of personal data protection, which is as relevant as ever. 

What is GDPR

Every company that gathers or processes the personal data of EU citizens should comply with the GDPR. Otherwise, it may face legal issues and significant (up to $20 million) fees.  

At the same time, EU citizens should educate themselves about the document to be aware of their rights and not get frustrated with thousands of notifications about privacy policy updates.
