Q. What is the European Union GDPR Privacy Law?
A. The new European Union (EU) privacy regulation aka the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is effective in the EU as of May 25, 2018. Unlike previous EU privacy directives which lacked the force of law, the new GDPR is an actual privacy law which is not restricted to citizens of the EU only within the borders of countries within the EU. It is extra-territorial meaning that the law applies to EU citizens who visit websites in countries outside of the EU. Just as this site’s intent is to protect any USA citizen visitor’s PII, our intent is also to provide any EU citizen visitor better control over their personal data online when visiting SN. USA sites are allowed to receive PII data from visitors from the EU and vice-versa. The same PII protection in place for visitors in the USA is also extended to visitors from the EU.
