Abstract

This paper explores the issues related to the extraterritorial applicability of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDRP). The author analyses the process of progressive development of the EU law in general and the current state of a general worldwide jurisdiction of the EU regulations in the field of data protection. The author explores different cases in which data administrators from third States would be obliged to comply with the provisions of the GDPR and the possible legal consequences that would follow eventual breaches.
