WHC undertakes to comply with its obligations under the regulations in question and, in particular, the General Data Protection Regulations (GDR).
This commitment to compliance is one of the reasons why WHC users are also able to meet some of their regulatory obligations. We strongly encourage all our users to be particularly vigilant on these compliance aspects. Other more specific regulations may also exist, in particular for certain special categories of personal data. This is the case for the processing of health data, military data, etc. It is the user’s responsibility to clearly identify the applicable regulations in order to comply with them in order to comply with his own obligations regarding the protection of personal data.
