Please take time to read our Data Protection Policy
We want VEI to not only stand for safe infrastructure networks but also set the standard in data protection. For that reason, we view it as our duty, as an international corporation, to comply with the various legal regulations around the world that govern the collection and processing of personal data. Our top priority is to ensure universally applicable, worldwide standards for handling personal data. For us, protecting the personal rights and privacy of each and every individual is the foundation of trust in our business relationships.
Our Corporate Data Protection Policy lays out strict requirements for processing personal data pertaining to customers, prospects, business partners and employees. It meets the requirements of the European Data Protection Directive and ensures compliance with the principles of national and international data protection laws in force all over the world. The policy sets a globally applicable data protection and security standard for our company and regulates the sharing of information between our partner companies. We have established multiple data protection principles – among them transparency, data economy and data security – as our guideline.
Our teams are obligated to adhere to the Corporate Data Protection Policy and observe their local data protection laws. It is our duty to ensure that the rules and principles of data protection at VEI are followed around the world.
VEI will be pleased to answer any questions you have about data protection and security.
VEI takes its obligations in relation to data privacy very seriously and we consider ourselves to be at the very forefront of best practice in this area.
We have conducted a detailed review of our controls, procedures and practices in light of the GDPR and consider our processes, procedures and solutions to be materially compliant already. We are confident our solutions and practices will comply before the 2018 deadline.
