The European General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (GDPR), published in the Official Journal of the European Union on May 4, 2016, went into effect on May 25, 2018 and has the force of law for all European countries. The GDPR establishes rules related to the protection of natural persons regarding the processing of personal data, as well as rules on the free movement of these data. The GDPR protects the fundamental rights and freedoms of natural persons, particularly the right to the protection of personal data.

The principle of accountability shapes the entire structure of the GDPR, and this new regulation repeals Directive 95/46/EC (the Data Protection Directive).

CCI SpA has an organizational, technological, and process model that meets GDPR requirements. Based on these management systems, CCI SpA has put in place controls, procedures, information, and continuous improvement mechanisms aimed at ensuring that the processing of personal data by the company and by any possible data processors that, in its name or on its behalf, must carry out processing, takes place according to the provisions of the European regulation. CCI SpA promotes the respect, by its employees and collaborators, for high moral values and integrity of conduct, requiring the proper use of the personal information that comes into their possession in the performance of their working activity. As a result of their activities and their requests, service users, suppliers, and employees of CCI SpA may provide personal data that are processed in order to carry out the relevant activities.
