General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

ATHEXGROUP PRIVACY STATEMENT FOR WEBSITE USERS

Summary

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect on 25 May 2018, ATHEXGROUP has established a comprehensive GDPR implementation program across its services, products and businesses, to ensure that the appropriate policies, procedures and controls are in place to facilitate compliance by the GDPR effective date.
ATHEXGROUP has arranged for a GDPR Privacy Statement to be read by each user of its internet website in order to provide information to meet our GDPR related transparency obligations. The Privacy Statement provides important information to individuals regarding how and why we process their personal data, with whom we share their personal data, certain rights that they may have, and how they can contact our Data Protection Officer.

Statement

The GDPR sets a new standard for the protection of personal data and seeks to strengthen the data protection rights of individuals in the EU, while also harmonizing data protection laws across the EU.

One of the key principles under the GDPR is that of transparency. This requires organizations such as ATHEXGROUP to provide people that use its website, with information about how we use or otherwise process their personal data. ATHEXGROUP's subsidiary entities (ATHEX, ATHEXCSD, ATHEXCLEAR) share the same website.
In order to meet our GDPR-related transparency obligations, we have prepared a Website Privacy Statement which provides important information to individuals regarding how and why we process their personal data, with whom we share their personal data, certain rights that they may have, and how they can contact our Data Protection Officer.
