1. Introduction

 

1.1. The General Data Protection Regulation and processing of personal data

Organisations that collect personal data must follow the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). GDPR has multiple purposes, one of which is to protect the right to privacy and integrity, which specifically includes the protection of personal data. “Personal data” is information that can be linked to a natural living person, such as name and address, but it can also be other information, such as IP-address. “Processing” can include, for example, collection, registration, storage, and transmission of personal data. The person whose data is being processed is called “Data subject”.

1.2. SUNT is responsible for your personal information
