The new regulations give users great control over their data, including the ability to export it, withdraw consent and request access to it.

It also makes data protection rules more or less identical throughout the EU, allowing for the easier transfer of data through out the European Union.

It affects any company that does business with Europe, whether they are based in the EU or not.

It serves as a leading regulatory model for other data protection authorities throughout the world.
