Does it apply to everyone; how can I find out if it applies to me?

The GDPR applies to every organisation that uses personal data to provide goods or services to anyone residing in an EU country. This rule applies irrespective of the location of the organisation itself, so UK businesses are directly affected. There are some rare exceptions in regard to law enforcement agencies.

It covers any organisation which offer goods or services, which includes both paid for and free services; or any organisation who monitor the behaviour of data subjects within the EU.

In short, if you provide any services to residents or citizens of the EU, the GDPR applies to you.
