We Are Fiber follows the GDPR procedures to protect customer data

On May 24, 2016, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) or The Regulation (EU) 2016 / 679 was introduced. The GDPR  provided a new approach to privacy, outlining a united data processing protection law. This was in response to the unique challenges arising from technological evolution and globalization.


The legislation contained in EU Regulation 2016/679 aims to protect the confidentiality of personal data, preventing  the potential damage and harm caused to fundamental freedoms and personal dignity through its incorrect use. 


This legislation is particularly relevant for any company that processes a plethora of personal data daily, most of the time concerning the identification and payment information of customers and employees.


Fiber Group offers your company a reliable partnership where all your privacy requirements are ensured according to the ever-adapting privacy context. 

How to protect personal privacy data?


The data processed by Fiber Group is indispensable for the provision and management of services. It can be used by staff, ensuring compliance with professional and organizational protocols and ensuring the rights of all interested parties (articles 12 to 22 of the GDPR). Following the provisions of the GDPR, Fiber Group ensures your business operates on the principles of legitimacy, correctness, lawfulness, essentiality,  and relevance, and prudence concerning the data collected. 


One of the most significant innovations of the Regulation is the introduction of the principle of accountability, which assigns data controllers to prove compliance with the principles applicable to the processing of personal data. 

To implement the principles above, Fiber Group, protects data from the design stage, through the preparation of adequate technical and organizational measures (By Design), to guarantee, only necessary data for specific purposes is processed (By Default).
