  1. Purpose of the Privacy Policy

The personal data provided by any data subject allows us to identify him/her as a natural person. The data subject is identifiable whenever it is possible to create a direct or indirect link between one or more pieces of information and the data subject as a natural person.

We only use and process personal data in accordance with the Personal Data Protection Regulations (PDR) and any successor legislation, or similar regulations under any applicable law, and any regulatory requirements or codes of practice governing the use, storage or transmission of personal data. In this privacy statement, any reference to the “DGPS” refers to the Regulation of 27 April 2016 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data.

Through this privacy policy, any data subject is informed of the processing activities that VIEDOC may carry out with his or her personal data. VIEDOC reserves the right to modify this privacy policy at any time. Any substantial changes will be clearly communicated to our customers. However, we advise Data Subjects to regularly review our privacy policy.
