Almost every aspect of our modern lives revolves around the presence of some form of data; from social media to banks and retailers, all our daily aspects have invariably been linked back to data available on us. The dependency on the use and presence of data and the sheer amount of sensitive personal data being entered into the system daily and one; triggered by the introduction of laws and regulations on the use of that data. The European Union (hereinafter “EU”) in 2018 observing major risk and a subsequent need to protect the personal data of all individuals, brought into force the General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter referred as “GDPR”).  This was introduced with the objective to not only protect the personal data from being jeopardized, but also placing significant constraints and restrictions on the manner in which said collected data is utilized, stored etc. GDPR standardized the data protection laws in a manner such that a layman would understand the manner in which his data was being utilized and also raise concern the moment they feel their rights are violated. GDPR covers several aspects of the data and places mandatory guidelines and regulations to be complied with by all corporations within the EU, one such aspect that we will focus on through this paper is Research, and more particularly scientific research.
