Compliance & transparency

In accordance with European Union law, the ETF is committed to ensuring implementation of the transparency principle by giving access, if possible, to its documents in the area of its operations as well in the interaction with its stakeholders.

However, the ETF must also guarantee to protect information held on individuals in accordance with the Regulation 45/2001 of the EU Parliament and of the Council.

Data protection is the safeguarding of the privacy rights of individuals in relation to the processing of personal data. The Regulation (EC) 45/2001 on Data Protection confers rights on individuals as well as placing responsibilities on those persons processing personal data.
