GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION (GDPR)
The European Privacy Regulation (“General Data Protection Regulation” or “GDPR”) establishes clear guidelines and a set of rules that determine how, when and under which circumstances the processing of personal data is allowed. The ultimate goals of GDPR can be summarised in three key concepts:
increasing the public awareness on privacy of personal data,
allow data subjects to have full control over their privacy and fundamental rights, and
to strengthen security requirements throughout companies and organisations.
At Our Company we do our best to fully embrace and be compliant with the GDPR. We believe that privacy is a fundamental right everybody should care about and should be protected in all possible ways.
