Hello, Community! So i am planning to start a website selling a digital product, but i have came across this "European GDPR law" Which means that my sales must be regulated if i sell to European folks. I am currently living in Europa. Do i have to contact someone to allow me to sell this digital product, or this is only for certain big companies and i shouldn't worry about it ?

And no need, but someone can sue your business (file GDPR complaint) if you keep bothering them with your product promotion without their consent, tho rarely

Something you need to make sure of is that the website for the product stores data securely, and you have to have what's called a cyber security incident report or something similar that gives you direction about what you do in the event of a data breach. What do you do to secure, and who to contact, etc. As well as a basic privacy policy, and proper cookie notification.

Yeah that makes up your cyber incident report that you use wordfence to secure against hacking, but you need to ensure that you specify where the data is kept, and with who it is stored on. So you have to name your website host in your privacy policy too. Your cyber report is private for your business, but your privacy policy is public on your site. Read some example privacy on big blogs, and you'll get a feel for what they say.
