The General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), effective from May 25, 2018, applies to every EU-based controller or processor of personal
data. The GDPR aims to ensure a higher degree of data harmonization across EU nations. Non-compliant data processors and controllers risk
significant fines and penalties, up to the higher of 4% of global business turnover or Euro 20 million, depending on the nature of the breach.

Complying with the GDPR is a significant challenge for businesses across the EU. This is due to the potential impact of non-compliance fines
and sanctions, as well as the long-lasting nature and high complexity of the project. In response to this, Legal Partners is dedicated to
developing and delivering the best data privacy management solutions.
