Varoutsikos SA GDPR Policy
Due to the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR 2016/679), which came into effect on May 25, 2018, we want to inform you about how we handle data handling in Varoutsikos SA.
Clients and newsletter subscribers
Our most important database is of course our client register and newsletter and all relevant data is collected, such as names and relevant address information including e-mail, invoice addresses, website address, contact details and telephone numbers. No personal and purely private data, in addition to the name, will be collected in our records.
After you unsubscribe from the newsletter, we will delete everything.
We have personal and company contact information stored, for example, those who asked to receive or signed up for our newsletter. We never put in a person's data ourselves. We are particularly careful that in each email you have clear instructions on how to unsubscribe from the newsletter.
We NEVER expose our members of registered readers of our newsletters and we do our utmost to keep the number of emails to a minimum.
We do not collect anything other than purely impersonal statistics from our website. There is no hidden data processing after such a visit.
We save all data in our database as long as we find them relevant, but obviously delete the data as soon as someone requests. We also respond with pure registry extracts about their own person, if desired.
This is best done by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or a call to our office number 0030 24210 23716/ 29294.
By signing up as a subscriber of our newsletters or requesting other relevant information from us or offer your personal data and details to us, you agree that we will handle your personal information in accordance with the above.
- You are entitled to, in accordance with applicable data protection laws, at any time request access to the personal data processed. You also have the right to have incorrect personal information about you rectified, request the deletion of your personal data, the limitation of our processing of your personal data, exercise your right to data deprivation and object to the processing of your personal information.
- If treatment is based on your consent, you are entitled to withdraw your consent for treatment at any time.
- If you wish to exercise any of your rights, please contact email@example.com or call 0030 24210 23716/ 29294.
