We only store data for the time period which is required for us to fulfil our contractual obligations and only keep records and other supporting documents in case of an audit from the EU.
We do not share data with third parties without consent, except for our suppliers of IT infrastructure. In such cases, a data processing agreement is put in place to ensure the safe and correct data processing on behalf of accelopment.
All our data processes are continuously monitored to ensure the highest degree of security and reliability.
