European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
The EU General Data Protection Regulation enacted on May 25, 2018, protects and empowers all EU citizens' data privacy and reshapes the way organizations across the region approach data privacy.
The GDPR applies to entities located outside of the EU who control or process personal data of anyone who is in the EU, regardless of EU citizenship. This includes organizations that offer goods or services to, or monitors the behavior of, people inside the EU. GDPR applies even if the processing takes place outside of the EU. This includes members of the Duquesne University community who may be residing (permanently or temporarily) in the EU, and EU citizens who attend or work for Duquesne University. This regulation also includes EU citizens who participate in campus activities including alumni organizations, mailing lists, forums, or other functions.
