The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which becomes effective May 25, is the most significant development in data privacy law in the past 20 years. It includes enhanced rights for EU residents and new obligations for franchisors and franchisees that collect, store, use, or transfer personal information of EU residents. Any franchisor or franchisee that offers goods or services to EU residents may be subject to the GDPR. Noncompliance may result in significant financial penalties—as high as 20 million euros or 4 percent of a company’s total revenue.
