GDPR: Answers to the most important questions about the new European law
May 25, 2018 is when the European GDPR enters into force – the European regulation on the protection of personal data.
The affiliate-marketing market participants raise many questions: what will change after May 25? How to build user interaction? What is ePrivacy and how is it different from the GDPR? Will every action be strictly regulated?

In this document, we covered the following questions.:
