The GDPR applies if you, the data subject or the processing itself is in a European Union country. The PIPL applies if you or the data subject is in China, or if the processing is to provide products or services in China or analyze people in China.

Breaching the GDPR carries a maximum penalty depending on the nature of the breach; the maximum fine is €20 million or four percent of worldwide turnover from the previous financial year, whichever is greater.
