  1. How do we protect personal data?

We have taken steps and put security measures in place to prevent the accidental loss or misuse of personal data.

For example, we limit access to those who have a genuine business need. Those processing your information will do so only in an authorized manner.

We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. We’ll notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach when legally required.

We hope that we can resolve any questions or concerns you raise about our use of your personal data.

For EU residents, the GDPR also gives you right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. You may do this in the EEA state where you live, work, or where any alleged infringement occurred.
