EU-US Privacy Shield

On 6 October 2015, the Court of Justice declared in the Schrems case that Commission’s Decision on the Safe Harbour arrangement was invalid. The judgment confirmed the Commission's approach since November 2013 to review the Safe Harbour arrangement, to ensure in practice a sufficient level of data protection as required by EU law. On 6 November 2015, the Commission issued guidance for companies on the possibilities of transatlantic data transfers following the ruling until a new framework (EU-US Privacy Shield) is put in place.

The Company complies with the guidance and will comply with the EU-US Privacy Shield in case of transatlantic data transfers to US third-parties/partners. Anyway, we are not responsible for the practices employed by these third-parties/partners.


This Privacy Police can be viewed in automatic format by means of the most recent browsers implementing the P3P (Platform for Privacy Preferences Project) standard as proposed by the World Wide Web Consortium (www.w3c.org).

All efforts will be made to ensure the highest interoperability between the functions of Edo and the automatic privacy verification mechanisms that are made available by some software products applied by users. Bearing in mind that the current development status of automatic verification mechanisms is such as not to allow ruling out errors and malfunctioning, it is hereby specified that this document as posted at
is the Privacy Policy of this site and will be updated as necessary.
