Privacy Policy

Privacy policy

The Privacy Policy describes how Carbon Neutral Initiative (CNI) collects, uses, stores, shares and protects your personal data.

The term “personal data” describes information that can be linked to a specific person and used to identify a specific person. User data that is anonymous or aggregated cannot be used to identify a person and is therefore not personal data.

Our Privacy Policy applies to the website https://carbon-neutral-initiative.com/ (“Website”). CNI is the data controller regarding the processing of your personal information as described in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The amended Privacy Policy will be effective immediately upon publication on our Website. This Privacy Policy is effective as from February 25, 2021.
