C. The right to erasure. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. Please note however that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request. In case if you want to obtain complete erasure of your data (to apply the “right to be forgotten”), please note that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.

D. The right to restriction of processing.

In case you withdraw from a consent given, then we will cease to process your data, unless and to the extent the continued processing is permitted or required according to the applicable data regulation or other applicable laws and regulations. The withdrawal from your consent will in no event effect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

H. The right to complaint to data protection supervisory authority. We do our best to ensure that we protect your data, keep you informed about how we process your data and comply with the applicable data protection regulation. In case you are not satisfied with the processing and protection of your data or the information you have received from us, then we urge you to inform us in order for us to improve.

This is the key to guaranteed protection and privacy of all data that our services handle and store, once the service or new feature is released.

In the event of a failure that affects the accessibility of your data, we have data backup and recovery procedures in place that will us help to restore your data in short time. For guarantee the quick recovery we use high availability mode enabled for most critical databases which allows us to minimize downtime.

Employee awareness of data security. Our employees may handle your data in order to provide you with the first-class service. To guarantee the security and confidentiality of your data, we monitor all employees’ actions with access to your data in our systems and grant access strictly on a "need to know" basis: only employees who need access will receive it.
