We have ensured the protection of your data by making necessary contracts with the subcontractors.

Most of these systems and their providers are available up-to-date through your own access to the databases i.e. you use the systems at your work.
We transfer personal data outside of the EU/EEA. When personal data is processed outside the EU/EEA, we make sure that the subcontractor has committed to use the EU Commission’s standard contractual clauses and/or is covered by the Privacy Shield -system.
