General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
GDPR represents a comprehensive framework for data protection within the European Union. It grants EU citizens expanded rights over their data, including:
- a) Right to Be Forgotten: Individuals can request the removal of their personal data.
- b) Right to Correction: Individuals can request corrections to inaccurate personal data.
- c) Right to Informed Consent: Individuals have the right to understand how their data will be used and provide explicit consent.
NetConnect has assigned Data Protection Officer (DPO) responsibilities to our Chief Information Cybersecurity Officer to ensure compliance with GDPR requirements. If your job responsibilities involve controlling or processing private information on EU citizens, please contact our DPO at NetConnect for assistance in addressing GDPR-related questions.
