    What is the GDPR?

    The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation on data protection and privacy in the European Union that was created to increase the control that individuals have over their own personal data.

    Why does the GDPR affect North Americans?

    Although the GDPR only applies within the European Union, it affects any company which intends to conduct business in countries within the EU. Failure to comply with the GDPR can lead to large monetary penalties, even towards non-EU companies.

    Have North American companies been penalized via the GDPR?

    Yes—the most notable case of a North American company being penalized for violating the GDPR was Google's $57,000,000 fine in January 2019.
