MEP is the controller of the personal data you submit to us and responsible for your personal data under applicable data protection law.

Data that is forwarded to third parties, is only used to provide you with our services. You will find categories of third parties under every specific process below.
What is the legal ground for processing?
For every specific process of personal data we collect from you, we will inform you whether the provision of personal data is statutory or required to enter a contract and whether it is an obligation to provide the personal data and possible consequences if you choose not to.
