5. How do we protect your personal data?
The security of your personal data is of great importance to us. We have taken proper technical and organizational measures to protect your personal data from unauthorized access either within us or externally, and from being lost, misused, altered or destroyed arbitrarily. For example, we use access control mechanisms to permit only authorized access to your personal data, cryptographic technologies for personal data confidentiality, and protection mechanisms to prevent system attacks.
Persons who have access to your personal data on our behalf have a duty of confidentiality, inter alia, on the basis of the rules of conduct and rules of professional practice applicable to them.
In respect of the retention periods of your personal data, we are committed to keep it no longer than is necessary for achieving the purposes stated in this policy or for complying with applicable data protection legislation.

Because we do our business globally, your personal data might be transferred to third parties in other countries, and held and processed on our behalf for the abovementioned purposes.
Third parties to whom we provide your personal data may themselves be responsible for complying with data protection legislation. WaTech is neither responsible nor liable for the processing of your personal data by these third parties. To the extent that a third party processes your personal data as a processor of Watech and therefore acts at the request and on the instructions of us, we conclude a data-processing agreement with such third party which meets the requirements set out in data-protection legislation.

You have the right to unsubscribe from emails and messages from us at any time and at no cost if you no longer wish to receive them.
You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data. We will discontinue the processing if it is required by law to do so.
