GDPR Compliance Statement


The European Union's General Data Protection Regulation will become applicable Data Protection Law from May 25th 2018 within all EU member states and replaces the current Directive from 1995.

The update brings data protection rules in line with technology and society today and will be a guideline for Digitalization and Big Data approaches.

The 21st Century brings with it broader use of technology, new definitions of what constitutes personal data, and a vast increase in cross-border processing. The new Regulation aims to standardize data protection laws and processing across the EU; affording individuals stronger, more consistent rights to access and control their personal information.
