As part of our information sharing activities described above, your personal data may be transferred to other countries (including countries outside the EU or EEA) that may have different data protection standards than your country of residence.

6. Security
We have put in place appropriate, state-of-the-art security measures to protect the personal data for which we are responsible from loss, misuse and alteration. For example, our security and privacy policies are reviewed regularly and improved as needed, and only authorized personnel have access to personal information. Personal data transmitted through our website is also protected by SSL encryption. You can recognize such encrypted connections by the prefix https:// in the address bar of your browser.
While we cannot absolutely ensure or guarantee that no loss, misuse or alteration of information will ever occur, we make every reasonable effort to prevent it.
IP Address Truncation
When IP addresses are processed by us or by the service providers and technologies we use and it is not necessary to process the full IP address, it is shortened (so-called "IP masking"). In this process, the last two digits or the last part of the IP address after a period are removed or replaced by wildcards. This is intended to prevent or make it considerably more difficult to identify a person by their IP address.

7. Data storage
We strive to keep the processing of your personal data to a minimum. As no specific retention periods are set out in this Privacy Policy, your personal data will only be retained for as long as we need it to fulfill the purpose for which it was collected and, where applicable, for as long as required by legal retention obligations.
