GDPR and private site

I have a newsletter managed by an external "mailant" service where users to sign up must sign a form with Acceptance of privacy information. I have a contact form where to contact me you must accept the storage and management of your data from my website and must read and accept the Privacy Policy. Are they still subject to GDPR or are they only companies?

Answer:

Based on your description you are processing personal data of users on your website especially the ones that fill in the contact form and those to whom you are sending newsletters to. In this case you are acting as a data controller and yes the EU GDPR is applicable to you regardless if you are a company or not.

As per art 4(7) – Definitions (https://advisera.com/eugdpracademy/gdpr/definitions/) of the EU GDPR controller means “the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or M ember State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law”.
