Privacy Statement

EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a modernized and adapted version of the existing data protection regulations in the EU member states. The EU GDPR strengthens the rights of EU citizens with respect to their data and ensures safe handling of personal data. Companies are obliged to “data subjects” to always comply with their rights (e.g. access, erasure). For individual citizens of EU member states this means increased security and protection of their personal data. For further information: https://www.datenschutz-grundverordnung.eu/
