To whom do we transfer your personal data?

Personal data will generally neither be passed on to third parties nor transmitted outside the European Economic Area (EEA).

We store your personal data primarily on IT systems, some of which are outsourced to third parties. We have also commissioned IT service providers based outside the EEA, so that your personal data can also be stored outside these countries. Such service providers who access personal data from lepaga act as data processors on behalf of lepaga. When we engage data processors, we will ensure that the transfer of personal data outside the EEA is in accordance with data protection regulations and an adequate level of protection is guaranteed. In addition, we will take legal precautions for such a transfer, such as model contract clauses, the consent of individuals or other legal grounds that are permissible under the applicable legal provisions.

How long do we store personal data?

We will store your personal data for as long as this is necessary for the purposes for which they are collected and for other permissible purposes. The storage periods result from the business requirements and relevant laws.

Stored personal data will be deleted if the user of the Website withdraws his consent to its storage, if knowledge thereof is no longer required to fulfil the purpose for which it was stored or if its storage is inadmissible for other legal reasons.

How do we protect your data?

lepaga will keep your personal data secure and therefore take all precautions to protect your personal data from loss, destruction, misuse, access by unauthorized persons and manipulation.
