Moreover, before transferring any Personal Data to third party (processor, contractor, affiliate, partner, contractors, suppliers, vendors etc.) we shall make reasonable check of such third party regarding its compliance with law and Regulation.
We use such measures to keep your Information safe:
Employees. We chose our employees after a strict background check regarding their business reputation, whether involved in scandals, etc. Each employee has to take probation during which we check his skills, but also his reliability, honesty, his fit for our corporate culture, law abidingness, etc. We limit access to your Information for our employees on a “need to know” basis. The employee gets access only to that Information that he directly needs to perform his work. Moreover, each employee is bound with contractual non-disclosure obligations (NDA), which will remain in force even after the termination of the relationship between the employee and the Company.
Data transmission between Company’s subdivisions and employees is not allowed, except when directly authorized by the top management personnel or expressly provided in their job description.
Staff training. To make sure Personal Data is secure, we communicate our privacy and security guidelines to our employees and strictly enforce privacy safeguards within the Company. We give our employees a briefing (training) regarding the following: on safety and rules for handling Data (including the requirements of the GDPR); when moving away from the workplace, the employee blocks his/her computer; it is forbidden to install any software on the workstations without the permission of the system administrator; it is forbidden to store Data (in any form) in unprotected locations (environment); it is forbidden to take Data carriers outside the office.
We constantly improve our Data protection mechanisms and methods of training employees.
Access control. We maintain industry-standard physical, electronic and procedural safeguards designed to protect Personal Data in our possession from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access. We provide following security measures: access to the building by an individual card through the security point; access to the offices through code and fingerprint; in different offices there are different code and fingerprints for access, which allows the employee to enter only to the office assigned to him (access to all offices is provided only to the top management personnel); access to the working computer by password and login (only the employee knows); access to the Software with Data only by the employees user ID and password.
Relations with contractors and third party service providers. In addition to abovementioned security measures that we provide when cooperate with third party service providers, we also choose our contractors (subcontractors) on the same principles, on which we select employees. Contractors come for a specific task. They delete all received Data after the job is completed. They also sign the NDA on the same principles as our employees. They receive access only to the Data that is directly necessary for the task.
We choose only those contractors and third party service providers that have long been on the market and have established themselves as exceptional companies with a perfect reputation. An exception may be the need to use a contractor from a completely new sphere in which there is still no established market and companies a long time working on it; in such cases, we will implement all the necessary additional measures of data control and protection, as required by law.
The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Information, we cannot guarantee that the Site or the Data stored during your use of the Software is invulnerable to hacking and will not be subject to a security breach.

In addition to the abovementioned rights, you also have the right to lodge a complaint with a competent supervisory authority subject to applicable law.
In order to fulfill your request, we are required to verify your identity so that your data does not go to an unauthorized person. In case if you send a relevant request on behalf of company (in cases where Personal Data may be applicable to the company as pointed in Law and/or Regulation), we should be sure you are duly authorized to receive such data about such company. As a way of example, but not limited to: if you send request from the same email you used during registration and with the same signature you usually use in your emails (if there were any between us), we reasonably consider that it is you, who asks for your Personal Data. In cases if you use other email address (not the one who registered on the Site/signed up for the Services) we shall ask for additional verification (unless such additional emails/persons were pointed as trustworthy during registration).
Company, within one month of receiving your request, shall provide you with information about the actions taken in connection with your request. If necessary, the deadline for your request can be extended up to 60 days due to the complex nature of the request or the number of requests.
If your request turns out to be unreasonable or excessive, in particular due to its repeated nature, we may request a reasonable fee for the fulfillment of the request or refuse to take action in connection with the request.
In cases of breach of security which lead to unauthorized access to your Personal Data, we: will let you and the relevant Data Protection Authority know about this incident without undue delay as soon as we become aware of such breach and make all reasonable efforts to minimize the harm and restore necessary safety measures. We can notify (inform) you about breach of your Personal Data at our sole discretion in the following ways we consider most appropriate: via your contact email, by phone, in your personal account, in national news, on the Site or any other way which allows you to make necessary steps to minimize the possible harm without undue delay. Such notification will include general information about the breach, possible risks and our steps to minimize them – to the extent possible in relevant circumstances. You are solely responsible to notify your third parties if their Personal Data is part of such breach (if you are the one who provided such information to us). Our notifications shall not constitute our acknowledgment of any kind of fault (guilt, liability) for the breach.
We will retain your Personal Data for as long as necessary to provide the Services, provide access to the Software/Site, and as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our policies. Retention periods will be determined taking into account the type of Information that is collected and the purpose for which it is collected, bearing in mind the requirements applicable to the situation and the need to destroy outdated, unused Information at the earliest reasonable time. We make commercially reasonable efforts to store your Personal Data no longer than for 3 months. After such period, we make a revision of it. However, as it was mentioned above, we may delete your Personal Data at any time before such 3-month period terminates, in case if purpose we collected it for is no longer applies. We make no warranties your Personal Data will be available for any specific period of time (3 months, or less or more etc.). Please consider that we have no obligations to notify you when deleting your Personal Data and can do it at our sole discretion.
Please, notice that under applicable regulations, we may keep records containing client/customer/user Personal Data, billing information, communications and anything else as required by applicable laws and regulations or on a basis of legitimate interest (e.g. for defending our interests).
We understand the importance of taking extra precautions to protect the privacy and safety of children accessing Site and/or Software.

A. Do Not Track Signals
We use the usual types of tracking systems that are a standard practice in advertising, e.g. Google AdWords to track you over time and across third-party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore do not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. As well, be aware that some third party sites do keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you.
B. Notice for Minors
You acknowledge and voluntarily agree that we have no obligation of sending you via email or otherwise any notification regarding such change, though we have right to do so if consider it appropriate (e.g. in the event that the modifications materially alter your rights or obligations hereunder).
