The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is new legislation across the whole EU/EEA which applies from 25 May 2018.
It replaces current national data protection laws with a set of rules that are better suited to our digital information society. This means among other things that as a private individual you have more rights and the opportunity for better control over personal data that you disclose.
As a result of GDPR, we in KAMIC Group, that Amtele is part of, have produced a new integrity policy with guidelines that govern the entire business. The policy regulates processing of personal data in every company and business unit as well as in our group-wide functions.
As a customer, partner or contact your details are always safe with us and we respect your integrity and protect the personal data that we hold. All personal data is processed in accordance with current data protection laws and we make sure that your details are properly protected. We do not spread or share details with third parties.
