Apple launches Data and Privacy site for EU users with new privacy laws taking effect in two days

On May 25th, Europe’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) law goes into effect. This will prevent personal data from being used without express consent. The penalty for failing to comply with this new law can be as high as 4% of a company’s global revenue. Considering that Apple could face a fine in excess of $9 billion, it behooves the company to find a way to prevent any Facebook-esque privacy issues from occurring.
Meanwhile, by no coincidence, Apple is introducing a Data and Privacy website for its users in the EU just two days before GDPR goes into …
