Are you among those whose inboxes are flooded by a deluge of emails from companies trying to hold on to their customers? As the deadline for Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) draws near, we have got news (pr rather, memes) for you. To come into force starting May 25, the regulation has come to form across member states of the European Union “to harmonise data privacy laws”.

The GDPR, which was enacted in 2016, will ensure the data of all those living within the EU is protected and private. Further, it will also prevent the export of people’s data to outside territories. Its primal focus is on three key areas: privacy by design, consent for its use and personal data.
