Disclaimer: We are not lawyers. Nothing on this website should be considered legal advice. This is a basic ‘beginners’ blog on the subject, outlining how WordPress users can adopt best practice regards GDPR compliance.

The primary function of the new GDPR ruling is to provide clarity of when, where, and how data is stored during browsing and where that information you have provided may end up. Given most of the internet activity and development comes from outside the EU, it became of concern to the EU institutions that such sensitive data was in fact moving out or being stored outside the EU jurisdiction and may be used without consent, or redress to correction, or deletion.
