Web privacy policy


On 6th April 2016, the European Union approved a major reform in the regulatory framework on processing personal data and protecting privacy adopting “The General Data Protection Regulation” (GDPR), which is directly applicable in the Member States. GDPR replaces the Directive 95/46/CE (Data Protection Directive) which became effective since 25th May 2018.

The new Regulation enhances the right to the protection of personal data (Data Protection), according to the protection of privacy and personal data’s recognition as EU fundamental right. Furthermore, GDPR is a response to the challenges posed by technological developments. They are able to collect and process large amounts of personal data in real time, and allow the development of automated decisions outside the human intervention too.

Ricerca sul Sistema Energetico - RSE S.p.A. considers an obligation the protection of personal data for customers, employees, suppliers and external collaborators, regardless of the mere regulatory compliance.


GDPR references for RSE:

Data Processing Controller is RSE, represented by the Chief Executive Officer, with registered office in Via Rubattino 54, Milano and e-mail address
