The protection of natural persons in relation to the processing of personal data is a fundamental right. Article 8 para. 1 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union (the “Charter”) and article 16 para. 1 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) provide that everyone has the right to the protection of personal data concerning him/her.
Furthermore, under General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) No. 2016/679 of the European Parliament and the Council which came into effect on 25.05.2018, a stricter framework has been introduced for the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of their personal data and for the free movement of such data (the “General Regulation”).
The protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data is of the utmost importance for MYTILINEOS S.A. and Standardkessel Baumgarte GmbH (the “Company”); consequently, the Company collects and processes personal data strictly in conformance with the General Regulation and the applicable legislation in general and to the extent necessary in connection with some aspect of labor relationships and the business of the Company. The Company limits the access to such data to authorized persons only, and takes enhanced data security measures to secure data against – among others – loss, mishandling, unauthorized access, alteration or disclosure.
