GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)

 EU’s GDPR stands for General Data Protection regulation and it gives more authority over  on line data of an individual that giant companies are using  for example, Google, Facebook and  Twitter.

Further, you can understand by Google’s collection of data for Adsense advertisement. Google collects data from your email-id, your cookies, search history and  YouTube. These data companies use for showing advertisement on the website content you reading and watching.

Furthermore, you might have noticed that if you have browsed a website about T-shirts and after sometime. You will see that advertisement about T-shirts are coming on the websites you are browsing next.  But, Google does not shows what  data is being collected.

After coming the regulation Google   will be bound to show your data and if you want to delete them you can .
Moreover, companies are updating their data privacy policies to  compliant with GDPR.
