What is GDPR?
The European Union (EU)’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new regulation that comes into effect on the 25th of May, 2018. It aims to harmonize the data privacy laws across the EU, and (in particular) protect the rights of residents of the EU with regard to the processing of their personal data. It recognizes the data privacy rights of EU residents, and lays down rules relating to the processing of their personal data.
At its core, the GDPR aims to give EU residents full control over their personal data.
What is personal data?
In the context of GDPR, personal data is any data that can directly or indirectly help identify a natural person. This includes, but is not limited to: name, address, phone number, email address, IP address, traveling habits, and photos.
When and where does GDPR come into play?
GDPR applies for any activity that collects or processes the personal data of EU residents. It does not matter if the said activity takes place inside the EU or not. GDPR has a global reach.
Why be GDPR compliant?
EU’s GDPR comes into effect on the 25th of May, 2018. It is legally binding. The concerned Supervisory Authority (as defined by GDPR), may fine the non-compliant person or organization up to 20 million Euros or 4% of their annual worldwide turnover from the preceding year, whichever is higher. Levying a fine is in place for two reasons:
- A deterrent, so that Data Controllers and Data Processors act responsibly, and adhere to GDPR’s guidelines
- A compensation for the persons who have suffered material or non-material damage as a result of an infringement of GDPR
Key roles that GDPR identifies
- Data Subject: A resident of the EU from whom, or about whom, data is collected and/or processed
- Data Controller: The person or organization that defines the purpose and means of collecting and processing data
- Data Processor: The person or organization that processes the collected data on behalf of the Data Controller

Our Service does not address anyone under the age of 18 (“Children”).
We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 18.
