Storage of personal data
I take all possible precautionary measures to guarantee that your personal data is safeguarded. This includes storing your personal data securely on password-protected computers with active anti-virus software installed on the equipment and regular equipment updates implemented.
Third-party access to personal data
If I outsource all or part of the service you requested to a colleague, the text will be anonymized, so that your personal data will not appear. Furthermore, I will ensure that the colleague in question is also GDPR compliant and will process your documents accordingly. Other parties, such as my website and email hosting provider, may have access to your personal data for administrative purposes. All these parties are GDPR compliant.

You are entitled to access, modify, erase or contest the personal data that I hold, in accordance with the European General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679.
