  • We collect and process personal data only for specified, explicit, and legitimate purposes. We do not process personal data in a manner that is incompatible with these purposes.
  • Personal data collected is limited to what is necessary for the purposes for which it is processed, and we ensure that it is accurate, up-to-date, and securely stored.

2. Lawful Basis for Processing:

  • We regularly review and update our security measures to address emerging threats and vulnerabilities.

5. Data Transfers:

  • We may transfer personal data to third parties or service providers only when necessary for the purposes for which it was collected, and only if adequate safeguards are in place to protect the data during the transfer.
  • Data transfers outside the European Economic Area (EEA) are conducted in compliance with GDPR requirements, such as through the use of standard contractual clauses or other approved mechanisms.

6. Data Breach Notification:

  • In the event of a data breach involving personal data, we will notify the relevant supervisory authority and affected individuals without undue delay, in accordance with GDPR requirements.
  • We maintain records of all data breaches, including their causes, effects, and remedial actions taken.

  • Any updates or changes to our data processing activities are documented and communicated to relevant stakeholders as necessary.

9. Training and Awareness:

  • We provide training and awareness programs for our employees to ensure they understand their responsibilities under GDPR and are equipped to handle personal data appropriately.

10. Policy Updates:

  • This GDPR compliance policy may be updated periodically to reflect changes in legal requirements, industry standards, or our internal practices. Any updates will be communicated to employees and published on our website.
