The European Parliament and Council (EU) General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (GDPR) implemented by the European Union in 2018 provides legal protections for personal data and privacy of citizens of the EU and EEA, and also governs the transfer of such personal data out of EU/EEA territories. Any individual or organization which handles personal data must clearly disclose any data collection, declare the lawful basis and purpose for data processing, and state how long data is being retained and whether it is shared with any third parties or outside of the EU/EEA. As stated in the preamble to the regulation, “everyone has the right to the protection of [their] personal data”.

This website is subject to the GDPR, and complies with the regulation, as explained below. In addition, other legal notices are included here, which, while not mandatory, provide information about the operation and management of this website for interested persons and organizations around the world.
