Data protection policy

DATA PROTECTION POLICY: European Union General Data Protection Regulation (in short: EU GDPR).

GDPR is designed to protect European citizen’s fundamental rights in relation to the “processing” of their personal data. “Processing” data means any operations performed on personal data such as collecting, recording, storing, adapting or otherwise making the data available. The shipping business is still a very unique way of doing business and despite digitalisation left, right and centre, we all together managed to keep the tradition and can suggest that EU GDPR will not hinder us staying in touch.
