What is GDPR?

The European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is coming into effect on May 25, 2018. GDPR applies to any information that identifies, directly or indirectly, an individual in the European Union.   A business that stores personal data with Acronis is the “controller” for the personal data and Acronis is the “processor” for the personal data.  A controller has the legal liability for complying with GDPR, including the requirement of a “contract or other legal act” under GDPR’s Article 28(3).
