The aim of the GDPR is to protect all EU citizens from privacy and data breaches in an increasingly data-driven world that is vastly different from when the 1995 directive was established.

What Is Considered "Personal Data"?

Per the GDPR, personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual; meaning, information that could be used, on its own or in conjunction with other data, to identify an individual. This definition has an extremely broad reach.

Users are required to give us contact information (e.g., your name and email address) and possibly demographic information (e.g., your post code).
