How Do We Protect the Data?

 

 

The hosting service for our digital assets provides us with the online platform through which we can offer our services to you. Your data may be stored on secure servers, protected by a firewall, and the majority of areas of our services are accessible via secure HTTPS.

 

Despite the measures and efforts taken by us and our hosting provider, we cannot and will not guarantee absolute protection and security of the data you upload, post, or otherwise provide to us or others. 

 

For this reason, we kindly request you to set secure passwords and avoid transmitting confidential information to us or others through any communication channels where disclosure of such information might cause significant or sustained harm. 

 

Since email and instant messaging are not considered secure forms of communication, we also request that you refrain from sharing confidential information through these communication channels.

We use your personal data only for the purposes outlined in the privacy policy and only when we are convinced that:

 

The use of your personal data is necessary to perform or enter into a contract (e.g., to provide you with services or customer support or technical support).

 

The use of your personal data is necessary to comply with relevant legal or regulatory obligations, or

The use of your personal data is necessary to support our legitimate business interests (subject to the condition that this is always done in a manner that is proportionate and respects your data protection rights).

 

 

 

If you are a resident of the EU, you may:

 

Request confirmation of whether personal data concerning you is being processed, and access your stored personal data as well as certain additional information.

Request the receipt of personal data you provided to us in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format.

 

Request the correction of your personal data stored with us.

 

Request the deletion of your personal data.

Object to the processing of your personal data by us.

 

Request the limitation of the processing of your personal data, or submit a complaint to a supervisory authority.

 

 

 

Please note, however, that these rights are not absolute and may be subject to our own legitimate interests and regulatory requirements. If you have general questions about the personal data we collect and how it is used, please contact us as provided below.

 

As part of the provision of the services, we may transfer data internationally to affiliated companies or other third parties and from your country/jurisdiction to other countries/jurisdictions worldwide. By using the services, you consent to the transfer of your data outside the EEA.

 

If you are located in the EEA, your personal data will only be transferred to locations outside the EEA when we are convinced that an adequate or comparable level of protection for personal data exists. 

 

We will take appropriate steps to ensure that we have appropriate contractual agreements with our third parties to ensure that appropriate security measures are taken, minimizing the risk of unauthorized use, modification, deletion, loss, or theft of your personal data and that these third parties at all times act in compliance with applicable laws.
