Privacy

We are passionate about data privacy and security. As you may be aware the new EU data privacy rules, known as GDPR, come into effect on the 25th of May 2018. We embrace these new regulations that provide consumers with stronger privacy, control, and transparency regarding their personal information.

 

What is GDPR?

GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) represents the new EU data rules which come into effect on 25th May 2018. They are designed to enhance data privacy, transparency and control for European citizens and residents. GDPR increases EU Members’ data rights in several ways, including:

  • The right to be forgotten: individuals may request in certain circumstances to have their personal data to be erased.
  • The right to be informed: individuals should be informed about the collection and the use of their personal data.
  • The right to data portability: individuals can request their personal data to be sent to them or to another entity.

 

How will this affect our customers?

The good news is that we already work to comply with the regulations when it comes to your data privacy. We are also implementing a few additional measures to meet the new standards. Improved Data Management: We have implemented even stronger security, rules, procedures and restrictions on access to your personal data.
