The European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will necessitate managing retention and privacy policies together.

The GDPR provides no explicit rules for retention, just that you must keep information “for no longer than is necessary for the purpose for which it was originally processed.” Transparency of what the laws and regulations say regarding retention provides a holistic picture of why you are
obligated to manage different types of personal information, including how long you are legally obliged to keep it.
