The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) strengthens and unifies data protection for all EU citizens.
Non-compliant organizations risk fines of up to €20 million, or 4% of the organization’s global yearly turnover, whichever is higher.
On October 1, 2019, the highest legal entity of the EU, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU), ruled in the case of Planet49 that the only form of valid consent for processing user data in the EU is explicit consent, i.e. consent that is actively and specifically given by the website users by e.g. ticking a box.
