GDPR Policy

 

At Teli-Optima, we are committed to protecting the privacy and data security of our clients, employees, and all individuals whose personal data we process. This GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) Policy outlines the measures we take to ensure compliance with the GDPR and our commitment to safeguarding personal data.

 

What is GDPR?

GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation. It is a comprehensive data protection and privacy law that came into effect on May 25, 2018, in the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA). The regulation was designed to strengthen and harmonize data protection laws across the EU and give individuals more control over their personal data.

 

 Key Principles of GDPR:

Lawfulness, Fairness, and Transparency: Personal data must be processed lawfully, fairly, and transparently. Organizations must inform individuals about the purpose and processing of their data.

Purpose Limitation: Data should be collected for specified, explicit, and legitimate purposes. Organizations should not process data in ways incompatible with these purposes.

Data Minimization: Organizations should collect and process only the personal data necessary for the purpose it was collected for, and data should not be excessive.

Accuracy: Personal data must be accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date. Organizations must take reasonable steps to ensure the accuracy of the data they process.

Storage Limitation: Personal data should be retained only for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected, and organizations must establish appropriate retention periods.

Integrity and Confidentiality: Organizations must ensure the security and confidentiality of personal data by implementing appropriate technical and organizational measures.

Accountability: Organizations are responsible for compliance with GDPR. They must demonstrate their compliance and take responsibility for the data they process.
