Privacy Notice

Personal data protection legislation aims at guarantying that individuals have a high level of control of their private life and personal data. As of May 2018, Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (the General Data Protection Regulation or "GDPR") and the 2002/58/EC Directive (together, and with any other applicable European regulations applicable to the processing and protection of Personal Data) define the applicable legal framework in order to guarantee this level of protection for personal data.

The CMA CGM group undertakes to comply with the European Data Protection Regulations. To that extent, the terms “we”, “us”, “our” or “CMA CGM” are used to refer to CMA CGM S.A.
