- External advisors
- External (financial) service providers

With parties that process personal information on our behalf (the so-called ‘processers’), we sign (insofar this is required) processing agreements.

When storing personal information, our basic principle is that we do not store information any longer than is required for the purpose it was intended for.

7. How do we protect your personal information?
Our protection of your personal information is well-organised with physical, administrative, organisational and technical measures that are taken. The people who have access to your personal information only use this to perform their duties.
For specific purposes, required information will be provided to others within the organisation, such as your email address for contacting in regard to orders.
Your digital personal information is protected by authorization. Physical measures include locking up cabinets and spaces with a corresponding key policy.
Therefore, we have an appropriate level of protection. We also update this periodically or when needed.
