How we protect your data


We protect your personal data against unauthorized access, unlawful use, accidental loss, corruption, or destruction. To safeguard your data and the systems they reside in, we employ technical measures such as encryption, password protection, and access control mechanisms. Additionally, we implement operational security measures by limiting the number of individuals with access to the databases where your personal data is stored.
