After the expiry of the processing period, the data is irreversibly deleted or anonymized.

- use of standard contractual clauses issued by the European Commission;
- application of binding corporate rules approved by the competent supervisory authority;

- The Data Controller always informs about the intention to transfer Personal Data outside the EEA at the stage of collecting them.

The Data Controller conducts a risk analysis on an ongoing basis to ensure that personal data is processed in a safe manner - ensuring, above all, that only authorized persons have access to the data and only to the extent that it is necessary due to the tasks they perform. The Data Controller makes sure that all operations on Personal Data are recorded and performed only by authorized employees and associates.
The Data Controller takes all necessary steps to ensure that its subcontractors and other cooperating entities guarantee the application of appropriate security measures in each case when they process Personal Data on behalf of the Data Controller.
