Fondazione Penta ETS is strongly committed to protecting your privacy. You can navigate the majority of the c4c Website without giving us any personal information about yourself. However, sometimes we need additional information about you in order to provide the information or services you are requesting.

The new data protection rules in the European Union (EU) known as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) entered into force on May 25th, 2018.  It includes several key changes to existing EU data protection law, including data breach notification, accountability and enhanced individual rights. GDPR applies to all organizations and public bodies, wherever located, that handle data of persons in the EU.
