Protecting your information

We take the responsibility of protecting your information seriously. We develop our website, products, and services using privacy-by-design and security-by-design approaches.

We have a mature privacy management program with strong accountability. We do a privacy assessment at the early design or modification stage for every product and service that involves personal information. This way we ensure we find and reduce privacy risks before development or launch.

We also have a well-established and robust security management program in place. This includes both cybersecurity and physical security risks. Also, our security program works together with our privacy team to help safeguard your information.

  • Firewalls
  • Encryption
