8. HOW DO WE KEEP YOUR PERSONAL DATA SAFE?

We make every effort to ensure the security of your personal data. We take the security of your data very seriously, which is why we use, among other things, encrypted data transfer (SSL) during registration and login to your User account. This ensures that your identifying details are protected and makes it significantly more difficult for unauthorised systems or individuals to intercept access to your account.
Your data is stored in cloud hosting under personal data processing agreements. Data back-up copies are made periodically and stored on server disks located in our company premises.
Only authorised employees who have been granted access rights have access to your data in our company. Other employees do not have access to your data.

9. WHERE CAN YOU LODGE A COMPLAINT AGAINST THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA BY QGE?

You may lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. Currently, such complaints can be addressed to the Inspector-General for Personal Data Protection. However, we would like to point out that the President of the Personal Data Protection Office may soon be the competent supervisory authority in this matter.
