Compliancy with GDPR
Euromeds.to is fully compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the European Union. The GDPR regulation ensures that every citizen of the European Union whose personal data is collected has certain privacy rights. This also applies to customers of Euromeds.to.
As a result of this regulation you have the following privacy rights:
- The right to data portability means that you have the right to receive certain personal data that we hold as an organisation.
- The right to be forgotten means that we, as an organisation, are obliged to delete the personal data or your account if you request so.
- The right of access is the right to know the personal data that we have collected from you. You may also request to view this information.
- The right of rectification and supplementation entitles you to have certain personal details changed by you or to add additional details. We as an organisation are responsible for ensuring that the personal data we process is correct, and we are obliged to update this data if necessary or upon request.
- The right to restrict data processing gives you the right to restrict the use of your data in certain situations; in this case by or on behalf of Euromeds.to.
- The right related to automated decision-making and profiling: In other words, you have the right that your data and the resulting decisions are processed by a human instead of an automated process. Some organisations make decisions based on automatically processed data. At Euromeds.to every order is processed by a human.
- The right to object to data processing: You always have the right to object to the processing of your data. In such a case, we would have to stop or limit the processing of your personal data.
Euromeds.to complies with all privacy-related requirements of the GDPR regulation from 25 May 2018. The key principles are transparency, accountability, accuracy, goal limitation, data limitation, storage restriction, integrity and confidentiality.
What is GDPR and why was it introduced?
The GDPR intends to strengthen consumers rights, prevent fraudulent activities and provides, among other things:
- Stronger and more far-reaching privacy rights than previous agreements;
- Increased responsibilities and liabilities for organisations;
- Equal privacy regulations for all EU member states.
The EU General Data Protection Regulation GDPR came into effect on May 2018. Since then, the protection of personal data is subject to the same regulation in all EU countries.
Personal Data has been defined as anything that allows a person to be identified either directly or indirectly, such as a name, address or even an IP address. This also includes data created using a nickname. Personal data can be subdivided into ordinary, special and criminal.
