General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and our Privacy Policy

The European regulation GDPR 2016/679 is the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and the free movement of such data. 

 

This regulation is an essential step to strengthen the fundamental rights of individuals in the digital age and facilitate business by clarifying the rules for companies and public bodies in the digital single market. A single law will also eliminate the current fragmentation across different national systems and unnecessary administrative burdens.

 

In compliance with the above law, we make public our privacy policy:

a. Processed in a lawful, fair and transparent manner in relation to individuals;

b. Collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and shall not be further processed in a manner incompatible with those purposes; further processing for archiving purposes in the public interest, for scientific or historical research or for statistical purposes shall not be considered incompatible with the initial purposes;

c. Adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed;

d. Accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date; all reasonable steps should be taken to ensure that personal data which are inaccurate, in relation to the purposes for which they are processed, are erased or rectified without delay;
