General Data Protection Regulation
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) unifies data privacy laws across the European Union, gives individuals control over their personal data and protects their privacy. It extends the scope of EU data protection law to all international enterprises processing the data of EU citizens, wherever citizens may reside. To that extent, Elon University is committed to complying with the GDPR guidelines.
