Data location and protection
Your data are stored in Switzerland. Data is regularly backed up to prevent data loss. The Internet is generally not regarded as a secure environment, and information sent via the Internet (such as to or from Hematool® or via electronic message) may be accessed by unauthorized third parties, potentially leading to disclosures, changes in content, or technical failures. Even if both sender and receiver are located in the same country, information sent via the Internet may be transmitted across international borders and be forwarded to a country with a lower data protection level than exists in your country of residence. Despite our efforts, you acknowledge that no method for electronic transmission and storage is fully safe and we cannot ensure or warrant the absolute security of information stored on or transmitted through Hematool®. In the unlikely event that personal information is compromised as a result of a malicious attack or breach of security, we will promptly notify those persons whose information has been compromised.
Please note that we accept no responsibility or liability for the security of your information while in transit over the Internet to Hematool®.
