Data Security and Retention
How we keep your personal data secure
Azets takes the trust you place in us seriously. Azets is committed to preventing unauthorized access, disclosure or other deviant processing of your data. Further, Azets is committed to ensuring proper use of the information, to maintain data integrity and to secure data availability. As part of our commitment, we utilize reasonable and appropriate physical, technical, and administrative procedures and measures to safeguard the information we collect and process. Azets has implemented a number of security measures, including:
- Secure operating environments - Azets stores your data in secure operating environments that are only accessible to Azets employees and subcontractors on a need-to-know basis. Azets also follows generally accepted industry standards in this respect.
- Encryption of payment information - Azets uses industry-standard encryption to provide protection for sensitive financial information, such as credit card information, sent over the Internet (e.g., when you make payments through Azets’ online stores).
- Prior authentication for account access - Azets requires its registered users to verify their identity (e.g. login ID and password) before they can access or make changes to their account in order to prevent unauthorized access.
Please note that these protections do not apply to the personal data that you choose to share in public areas such as community websites.
How long we store your personal data
Azets will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary for the stated purpose, while also taking into account our need to answer queries or resolve problems and to comply with legal requirements under applicable laws.
This means that we may retain your personal data for a reasonable period after your last interaction with us. When the personal data collected is no longer required in this way, we destroy or delete it in a secure manner. We may process data for statistical purposes, but in such cases, data will be anonymized.
