Formula primarily has the obligation to disclose:

• Processing of personal data, • Who the data controller is,

• The purpose of the processing, and

• Potential recipients of the information.

Formula is responsible for the personal data of employees at Formula, customers, business partners, and providers in connection with our operations and services.
