What is GDPR and how does it affect you?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) introduced on the 25 May 2018 seeks to protect European Union citizens in regards to the processing and movement of their personal data. The rules apply to all institutions in the EU that process such personal information and give consumers the right to know what kind of data a company has on them and to choose to delete such information. In this respect, a company needs to have the consent of its clients to use their information.
This is a very positive change for clients. The new regulation reinforces your personal data rights, introduces higher standards for keeping such data secure and gives you more opportunities to question what you are signing up for, opt out from future communications and make a claim for damage resulting from the misuse of your data.
What we did in order to comply with GDPR:
The following are changes we made to protect your rights:
- Your consent to process your data is now required.
- You are aware of the reasons and the kind of personal data we collect: contact, family and professional data, tax and financial data.
- You know who receives your data.
- You can object to the use of your data for marketing activities.
- Your personal data is securely deleted after the end of our business relationship with you.
- You have a clear outline of your rights in regards to the data we hold on you.
- Your data may be processed outside the EU, when these are shared and processed with other associated companies who offer the respective services seen on the DGM website.
- You can decide which cookies to accept with our Cookie control.
You can further review the changes by reading the respective policies.
