In accordance with Regulation EU 679/2016 (GDPR)


Protection & Processing of General Personal Data

Personal Data (PD) is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. An identifiable natural person is one whose identity can be ascertained, directly or indirectly, by reference to an identification identifier, such as a name, identity number, location data, online identity card, or one or more factors matching to the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person. This also applies to more personal information such as habits, preferences, biometric data, etc. Every company that manages personal data relating to living natural persons within the EU, is required, from 25th of May 2018, to fully comply with EU Data Protection Regulation 679/2016 on the protection of personal data. The Regulation is directly applicable in all EU Member States. The collection of PD is a form of processing, such as storing, organizing, structuring, altering, retrieving, searching for information, using, disclosing, deleting, or destroying. An enterprise, through its Privacy Policy, informs natural persons about the processing of their PD, by helping them make conscious decisions about their relation with the business.
