Article 3 – Territorial scope – states in paragraph 2 that “This Regulation applies to the processing of personal data of data subjects who are in the Union by a controller or processor not established in the Union, where the processing activities are related to: (a) the offering of goods or services, irrespective of whether a payment of the data subject is required, to such data subjects in the Union; or (b) the monitoring of their behaviour as far as their behaviour takes place within the Union.” . So, if the company offers goods and services to people in the EU (actually positioned in the EU), GDPR applies to the company. If the company offers goods and services to people in non-EU countries, and the company is not in the EU, GDPR doesn’t apply to them (even if EU citizens reside in the services countries).
