Privacy Notice

What is EU GDPR? 

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an EU law that took effect in May 2018 and is uniformly binding in all 27 EU nations. It controls how companies and organizations are allowed to handle personal data.

Personal data is defined in the GDPR as anything that can be directly or indirectly identified to a natural person, such as names, physical addresses, IP addresses, location data, and information about physical, mental, economic, cultural or social facts.

Sensitive personal data, however, is defined by the GDPR as data about religious convictions, political opinions and/or sexual orientation.
