Do US companies have to comply with GDPR?

Yes, US companies have to comply with the GDPR. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a European Union (EU) law that protects the personal data of individuals within the EU.

The GDPR applies to any organization, regardless of its location, that processes the personal data of EU citizens. This means that US companies that offer goods or services to Europeans or that monitor Europeans online activities must comply with GDPR.

US companies must adhere to the GDPR’s requirements, which include obtaining consent from users before collecting their data, providing users with access to their data, and notifying users of any data breaches. US companies must also appoint a Data Protection Officer (DPO) to oversee the company’s data protection activities and ensure compliance with the GDPR.

Failure to comply with the GDPR can result in severe penalties. Organizations that violate the GDPR can be fined up to 4% of their annual global turnover or €20 million (whichever is greater). Therefore, US companies must comply with the GDPR in order to avoid significant fines and penalties.
