MediaKind has implemented and maintains administrative, technical, organizational, and physical measures designed to provide an appropriate level of security to protect and safeguard personal data in accordance with this policy and applicable laws and regulations, against unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. Such measures take into account the nature of the data and the processing, the state of the art, the costs of implementation, and the potential for impact to the rights and freedoms of individuals whose data is being processed, and include, by way of example, encryption in transit, two-factor authentication, and strict access controls.

MediaKind will retain personal data we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide you with a service you have requested or to comply with applicable legal, tax, or accounting requirements).
When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal data, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal data has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal data and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
