The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is often known as the ''European privacy law''. What is the relationship between 'privacy' and 'data protection'?
Data protection and privacy are complementary, but not the same thing.
A very repeated phrase is: ''It is possible to have security without privacy, but it is not possible to have privacy without security''.
Privacy is a right that must be protected, and Data Protection are the measures that will be used to achieve this protection.
