We keep your data for the period of time necessary to fulfill the purposes of processing as defined above. This data, however, will be erased once you stop interacting with DEF (i.e. after delivery of a particular service), unless DEF has a legitimate interest in keeping the personal data longer (i.e. to protect DEF’s legal claims). This would be the case if DEF had a legal obligation to keep your data for a longer period of time (for example, based on applicable accounting rules), or in cases where applicable law obliges us to keep such records for a longer period.
IS YOUR PERSONAL DATA SECURED?
We store electronic, and in some cases physical copies, of your personal data. In accordance with best practices, we maintain security safeguards that protect your data.

Your personal data may be stored and processed in countries where DEF carries out business or where its service providers are located. These countries may apply different privacy rules than the European Union, or the European Economic Area (EEA). DEF has put in place appropriate contractual and other measures to protect your personal data when personal data is transferred to related parties and/or third parties located in other countries.
In the case of cross-border transmission of data from the EEA to countries where the European Commission recognizes an insufficient level of protection of personal data, the controller ensures that those data recipients are bound by EU standard contractual clauses to protect your personal data.

Regarding your data, you have the following rights:

For this reason, DEF reserves the right to modify and change these conditions at any time. These changes will be reflected in this statement, and therefore, should be checked regularly for any updates and/or amendments of this policy.
