GDPR compliance for Apps

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a law from the European Union that deals with personal data and privacy. GDPR is important and has a big impact around the world, inspiring new legislations, as CCPA and others, expected in years to come. Developers and app owners, who use web or mobile apps that collect and use collected personal data from EU citizens must follow the GDPR. 

It doesn't matter if your app is run outside of the EU. The GDPR will still be in place, where penalty for noncompliance with this law might be substantial. The main goal of the GDPR is to provide EU people more control over their personal information. Personal data may be controlled by individuals, and companies can better handle personal consumer data using GDPR guidelines. 

If you are a web or mobile app developer or app owner, this article will shed some light on how to implement GDPR-compliant Privacy Policies and procedures of collecting, storing and processing personal data. GDPR also introduces new roles, data Controller and Processor, which may be confusing to some development teams.
