FOR PROTECTION OF THE PERSONAL DATA ADMINISTERED BY THE BULGARIAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE AND INDUSTRY
Who are we?
The Bulgarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) is a non-profit organization which assists, promotes, represents and protects the business interests of its members.
For more than 120 years, BCCI has been working actively in service of Bulgarian entrepreneurship for the purpose of its prosperity and the economic development of the country.
As the largest nationally recognised employers’ organization, BCCI maintains a constant dialogue with the state authorities on improving the conditions for business, modernising the administrative system, limiting unfair competition, and protecting the individual and the property of citizens – measures which will stimulate the economy of the country.
BCCI and the confidentiality of personal data of individuals
In order to fulfil its mission and objectives, BCCI collects information mainly related to entrepreneurial activity. To a large extent, these are data and indicators in the field of economic development.
We are convinced that the success of any business endeavour is inextricably linked to the people who run it. Entrepreneurs/employers are the engine of the economy and without them it cannot exist and develop. This is the reason why BCCI collects, in addition to the business information, also personal data of the entrepreneurs/employers representing the various established forms of business activity, as well as personal data – data of other persons who work/contribute to the development of the economy – representatives of associations and foundations, as well as experts, representatives of the public institutions and international organizations.
Why do we collect personal data?
The reason we collect personal data is closely related to the achievement of the goals and objectives of BCCI – as stipulated in its Articles of Association or in compliance with legislative acts.
Through this statement, BCCI provides you with information about the nature of the personal data it collects and processes so that you gain clarity about the purpose of its collection, your rights, and how we protect the privacy of your personal data.
This statement is intended for you – all the present and future members and, in various forms, partners of BCCI.
