Since we live in a digital world where the Internet has become the alpha and omega, it is logical that increases the risk associated with its use as well as people’s fear of misuse of their sensitive data.

For this reason, the European Commission is preparing a comprehensive reform of EU rules on the protection of personal data which will enable all people to better control their data and ensure that companies reduce the cost to them at the moment mainly arise due to excessive administration. The aim of the whole reform is gaining the trust of people in online services and activities of the European Union. For more information, please visit the websites:
