Important information about the processing of personal data


Dear Sir or Madam,

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect on 25 May 2018. This significantly improves data protection for data subjects in the European Union.

The GDPR is the most important data protection regulation in Europe since the EU Data Protection Directive of 1995. After a two-year transition period, the GDPR now replaces the outdated EU Data Protection Directive and, to a large extent, national data protection laws. Unlike a directive, a regulation applies directly in all member states of the EU without the need for national transposition laws. In this respect, uniform rules and regulations on data protection across the EU were created for the first time.

We are aware that diligence is the basis for trustful cooperation with our customers. Compliance with laws and regulations in general is just as important to us and our employees as the lawful and sensitive handling of personal data in particular.

To help you better understand the various aspects and implications of the new regulation, we are happy to provide you with an overview in the attached data protection notices of how our company processes personal data. Also included is information on who you can contact if you have any queries or a matter that needs attention.

Yours faithfully,

Euregio Rhine-Waal
