I. Privacy Policy

1.     Introduction

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces Data Protection Directive 95/46 under EU law. It has direct effect and implies a change in legislation of Member States in the field of personal data protection. The purpose of GDPR is to protect the rights and freedoms of individuals and to ensure that personal data are not processed without their knowledge and, where applicable, their consent.

Scope (GDPR Art.2) – this regulation applies to the processing of personal data wholly or partly by automated means and to the processing other than by automated means of personal data which form part of a filing system or are intended to form part of a filing system.


Definitions (GDPR Art. 4):

Personal Data means any information relating to an identified of identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, and online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural, or social identity of that person.

Processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data (or sets of personal data) – whether or not by automated means. This includes collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction – basically anything we could possibly do with your data from the moment of collection to the moment of destruction.

Controller means the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of processing personal data. In this instance, Core Training Sàrl is the data controller.

Processor means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller. In this instance, the employees of Core Training Sàrl shall be the data processors.

Third Party means a natural or legal person, public authority other than the data subject, controller or processor who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorized to process personal data.

Personal Data breach means a security breach leading to the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, unauthorized disclosure of, or access to, personal data somehow processed.

Data Concerning Health means personal data related to the physical or mental health of a natural person, including the provision of health care services, which reveal information about his or her health status.


2.     Declaration:

2.1 The management of Core Training Sàrl will take measures to ensure compliance with legislation regarding the processing of personal data and the protection of ‘rights and freedoms’ of anyone whose personal data is collected and/or processed by the company.

2.2 Other relevant documents as well as their related processes will be described in this policy.

2.3 This policy covers all processing functions of personal data, including those relating to personal data of clients, employees, suppliers and partners.

2.4 The Data Protection Officer is responsible for reviewing all privacy procedures, policies and practices on an annual basis to ensure continued compliance and the updating to any necessary aspects of data processing.

2.5 This policy applies to all employees/workers of Core Training Sàrl. Any violation of the GDPR will be dealt with appropriately, as a breach of contract, and should there be a suspicion of a crime, the matter will be referred to the relevant authority as soon as possible.

2.6 Third Party companies who work with Core Training Sàrl will be expected to understand and comply with this policy. This policy, however, does not govern third party companies, and we encourage you to read the privacy policies of the third party companies we work with, should you have any concerns.
