Privacy policy

Armatis-lc undertakes to collect and process your Personal Data on our websites in compliance with the regulations in force and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

About the GDPR

In April 2016 the European Union adopted a new legal framework, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The General Data Protection Regulation, which will be fully applicable throughout the European Union in May 2018, is the most comprehensive and progressive piece of data protection legislation in the world.
Armatis-lc’s application of these fundamental principles has led in practice to the adoption of a Privacy and Data Protection Charter (link) and this Privacy Policy, the purpose of which is to provide everyone with transparent, clear and precise information about what is done with their personal data.
