Please can we create a GDPR tag as this may be useful in the lead up to May 2018 where the regulations will come into affect: https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/data-protection-reform/overview-of-the-gdpr/

  • It looks like the existing tag eu-cookie-law might still cover this new regulation. Nov 14, 2017 at 16:20

    Perhaps in part as cookies are covered by the GDPR, however I think the topic is much wider than cookies alone. Nov 14, 2017 at 16:23

I created the GDPR tag, added Wiki content for it, and added the tag to your related question: GDPR compliant contact form.

This new regulation covers Personal Data for all individuals within the European Union (EU):

Personal data is any information relating to an individual, whether it relates to his or her private, professional or public life. It can be anything from a name, a photo, an email address, bank details, your posts on social networking websites, your medical information, or your computer's IP address. The EU Charter of Fundamental Rights says that everyone has the right to personal data protection in all aspects of life: at home, at work, whilst shopping, when receiving medical treatment, at a police station or on the Internet.

It will take effect on May 25th, 2018.
