The GDPR Has Worldwide Application
If your business offers goods or services, has employees, physical buildings, or a website accessible by data subjects in the 27 EU Member States, it’s most likely subject to GDPR. Because the GDPR protects the personal data of individuals, which includes anyone physically residing in the EU, even if they are not EU citizens, its applicability is extremely broad. Don’t get caught off guard, get GDPR compliant.
