Statistically speaking, Friday marks the preferred day in the week for most working people.
For most, it’s the final nail in the coffin of the working week, and the first opportunity to let your hair down, relax and perhaps engage in a couple of days of overindulgence. Unless of course this particular Friday is the 25th of May 2018 ...

The GDPR is a new legislation designed to strengthen the protection of EU citizens’ personal data, by setting new standards for the management and use of the data, whether your business is European or not (you can find much more useful information on this GDPR site).
Up until now, businesses have traditionally ‘owned’ the personal data of their customers, employees and other individuals.
