It’s called the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) in English. DSGVO is a European law in which 28 member states have participated in order to guarantee the harmonisation of the protection of personal data in all member states and to offer EU citizens a uniform level of data protection. DSGVO has now been effective in all EU countries since 25 May 2018.
