From 25 May 2018, all European countries will have a new common law for the processing of personal data: The Data Protection Ordinance. The purpose of the new legislation is to strengthen the protection of individuals' personal data.
The most important changes to the Data Protection Ordinance are that you have the right to request rectification, deletion or access to your personal data. You also have the right to object to the processing of your personal data and to limit the processing of it.
Personal data is all information that can be used to identify a person. Examples of personal data are names, pictures, contact details, social security numbers, etc. We ensure that your personal information is always protected by us, and that the processing complies with both data protection rules, internal guidelines and routines. You have the right to request extracts with your personal information and your personal data will never be stored longer than is reasonably necessary for the purpose.
Your personal integrity is important to us. It is important for us to that you feel safe with how we handle your personal information. Therefore, we have routines and systems to protect your personal information. We ensure that only those persons who process your personal information have access to these.
