On 25/05/2018 a new European Union (EU) data protection law, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), took effect. The GDPR gives individuals in the EU more control over how their data is used and places certain obligations on businesses that process information of those individuals.
VIVAT operates a number of secure web applications. These are hosted on secure servers held within our datacentre, and access is protected by individual client credentials and covered by data encryption and strong SSL/TLS technology.
Whilst GDPR applies equally to these systems, they are covered by separate policies that are specifically tailored to the type of information they collect and process. These policies are clearly stated as part of the registration process.
If you would like a copy of these policies without needing to register, please contact us using the details below.
