Facilitating the free flow of data while providing a high level of protection for personal information
Protecting the fundamental rights and freedoms of individuals and, in particular, the right to the protection of personal data, as enshrined in the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union and the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union ('TFEU'), underpin the free movement of personal data within the Union.
EU Regulation 2016/679 (also known as GDPR - General Data Protection Regulation) seeks to harmonise the protection of individuals' fundamental rights and freedoms concerning data processing activities and to ensure the free flow of personal data between Member States.
In line with its corporate mission, Exprivia ensures that the management of all corporate processes is governed by the rules of internationally recognised standards and the regulatory principles applicable to the processing of personal data contained in the GDPR and Italian Legislative Decree 196/03 Underlying this is the assumption that protecting the rights and freedoms of individuals also indirectly protects the company's business and that of its customers.
This awareness informs Exprivia’s business activities.
The fast pace of technological change and globalisation brings new challenges for personal data protection. The scale of personal data sharing and collection has grown significantly. Current technology allows private companies and public authorities to use personal data, as never before, to perform their activities. Increasingly, individuals are making personal information publicly available worldwide. Technology is transforming the economy and social relations. It must further facilitate the free movement of personal data within the Union and its transfer to third countries and international organisations while ensuring a high level of personal data protection.
