Your personal data may be used to the extent necessary to comply with the Company’s legal obligations (laws), resolve disputes, and enforce legal agreements. Your usage data will be retained for internal analysis purposes. When we no longer need your personal data, we will securely delete or destroy it. 

Your personal data is securely stored by MatreshQA on its servers, and on the servers of the cloud-based database management services that MatreshQA engages.

At MatreshQA we are committed to the security of your personal data. We have adopted technical and organizational measures in order to prevent unauthorized or accidental access to user’s personal data, its alteration, destruction or loss, unauthorized transmission, other unauthorized processing, as well as other misuse of personal data.

These measures include:

  • documenting your personal data processing activities;
  • conclusion of written contracts with processors who process personal data on behalf of the organization (all relationships related to the processing of personal data in which the organization is involved are governed by documented contracts, which include certain information and conditions required by law);
  • any transfer of personal data which are undergoing processing or are intended for processing after transfer to a third country or to an international organisation take place only if the requirements of the legislation of the countries, where the data subjects are located, are complied with by the controller and processor, including for onward transfers of personal data from the third country or an international organisation to another third country or to another international organisation;
  • we, acting as a controller, carry out an assessment of the impact on the protection of personal data, when the processing of personal data can lead to a high risk for individuals;
  • notification of violations of personal data;
  • compliance with codes of conduct and certification systems;
  • data protection by design and by default;
  • implementation of appropriate security measures.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure.

  • To comply with a legal obligation
  • To resolve disputes
  • To protect the rights of MatreshQA.
  • To prevent a wrongdoing in connection with the Sites and the company’s services
  • To protect the personal safety of users.
