ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5


GDP stands for General Data Protection Regulation. It's a set of rules to help make sure people's personal information is kept safe and secure. Every country in the European Union (EU) follows these rules to help protect people's information. For example, companies must tell people what information they are collecting about them, why they need it, and how long they will keep it for. They must also make sure that the information is stored securely so that no one else can get to it without permission.
