When the servers of our subcontractors are located abroad we ensure that they are located in a state whose data protection legislation is equivalent to the FADP and the GDPR and that our subcontractors apply organizational and technical measures consistent with the FADP and the GDPR.

We strive to maintain a high level of security in the collection, processing, and retention of data by relying on organisational and technical measures and taking the necessary precautions regarding the nature of the personal data that you are likely to communicate to us and the risks presented by their treatment in order to preserve its security and prevent such that they are altered, damaged, destroyed or that unauthorized third parties have access to it.
However, we draw your attention to the fact that it is impossible to guarantee the absolute protection and invite you to apply good practices in order to contribute to the security of your data, in particular not to communicate your identifiers and passwords to other users. 11. COOKIES & PLUGINS
