How do we maintain the security of your personal data?

We use a variety of security measures, including authentication tools, encryption, and digital certificates to help protect and maintain the security, integrity, and availability of your personal information.
Although data transmission over the internet or website cannot guarantee complete security against intrusions, we and our service providers and business partners make every effort to implement and maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect your personal data in accordance with the applicable data protection requirements. Among others, we have implemented the following:

  • Protection of information technology systems through firewalls, in order to prevent unauthorised access to your personal data;
  • Continuous monitoring of access to information technology systems in order to prevent, detect and prevent the misuse of your personal data.

How long we keep your personal data?

We store your data only for the period in which the purpose for which it was collected is valid.
Once the maximum period of conservation has been reached, your personal data will be irrevocably anonymised (anonymised data may be stored) or destroyed safely.
