GDPR, the General Data Protection Regulation, is a new regulation and has been applied collectively across the European Union since 25 May 2018.
The management and protection of the personal data of the user of olivenet.gr services is subject to the terms of this section and the relevant provisions of Greek Law 2472/1997 on the Protection of Individuals from Personal Data Protection, is supplemented by Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council.

Particular emphasis is given to the continuous monitoring of our systems for breaches and taking data protection measures. Our structures are specially designed to facilitate security through the entire data protection cycle, including secure data storage, secure communication between services and applications, and specialized data backup and termination procedures.
We have taken care to train all the staff at Olivenet.gr on the new regulation and to assure its omnichannel application.
Respect on personal data
Privacy and absolute transparency in business practices are of primary importance to us. We are prepared to implement the GDPR and are available to help our partners and platform visitors understand the services in the light of the new regulation.
