Our Approach

Under the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), certain controllers and processors are required to appoint a Data Protection Officer (DPO). The role of the Data Protection Officer is to be advising and training employees and performing baseline measurements and internal audits. The Data Protection Officer also acts as a contact person for the supervisory authority.

Is there a complaint or question from a person whose data you keep or process? In this case, the DPO is also the contact person. We form a buffer between you and third parties. The DPO has an independent position. Among other things, he assesses the safety measures taken. In addition, he guarantees compliance with the various laws relating to data processing.
