The GDPR has 99 articles and 173 recitals. The recitals do not have the same status as the articles, but form a good basis for interpretation of the GDPR’s legal text. We have therefore chosen to place them together with the articles that they clarify. You can find the recitals by clicking on the plus sign (+). We also refer to other articles that cover the same area as the article you selected. We hope this is helpful!
