The rights of individuals in GDPR - part 2

The scope of the GDPR

By applying the rights of persons, the GDPR grants the consumer/citizen a right to information, control and object as to the use of their personal data by private and public businesses. In this context, it's important for the consumer/citizen, as well as for businesses, to understand the underlying principles (see the first post of this series), the necessary implementation and the tools to use.
