International Data Transfers

CaseDog’s activities might necessitate transferring your personal data across borders.

We adhere to the GDPR and other relevant legislation, employing safeguards such as standard contractual clauses or ensuring the external territories offer an adequate level of data protection, to maintain your data’s integrity and security.

Data Security

The security of your personal data is of utmost importance to CaseDog. We employ robust technical and organisational measures to prevent unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction of your data. While the internet inherently poses risks, we strive to apply the most secure methods available to keep your information safe, including encryption, firewalls, and secure server facilities.

Data Retention

Your personal data is retained by CaseDog only as long as necessary for the purposes it was collected for, including any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. We review our retention periods regularly to ensure we don’t hold onto your data longer than necessary, taking into account our legal obligations and the expectations of our service users. When your data is no longer needed, we ensure it’s securely deleted or anonymized.
