Your Personal Data is stored in France.

However, TAPNATION may occasionally need to transfer personal data outside of the EU, in which case it will only do so in a secure manner, in compliance with applicable laws.

Certain countries do not have laws regulating the use or transfer of personal data: in these cases, we will take all necessary measures in order to ensure that the relevant third parties comply with the conditions described in this policy. These measures may include verifying the norms applied by these third parties with regard to security and the protection of personal data, and/or signing the appropriate contracts.

What security measures does TAPNATION implement?

TAPNATION implements technical and organizational measures to protect your Personal Data from being destroyed, altered, or lost, and from its accidental or unauthorized disclosure.

These measures continue to evolve in order to best ensure the protection, security, integrity, and confidentiality of your Personal Data.

TAPNATION only stores your Personal Data for the length of time that is strictly necessary for accomplishing the objectives described above.

However, data that can be used to establish proof of a right or a contract, which needs to be stored to comply with legal obligations, will be stored for the duration of time determined by the applicable law.

Your Personal Data may be stored for a duration of three (3) years starting from the end of the business relationship or the last contact you initiate.
