1. Who we are.

The Council of the Baltic Sea States (CBSS) Task Force against Trafficking in Human beings (TF-THB) is an expert group that works to counteract all forms of human trafficking in the Baltic Sea Region.

cbss.org is the official website of the CBSS TF-THB and its projects. 

2. What information do we collect about you?

Personal data can be many things. It may be a name, address and telephone number. Or it may be an image file or an IP address.

Personal data means all forms of information that can be used to identify an individual. As a consequence, it is not just the single piece of information that determines whether or not it can be classed as personal. If a number of pieces of personal information do not identify an individual on their own but do so when put together, then they can be characterised as “personal data”.
