Types of personal data KODO collects

Some of your personal data may be provided to third parties when justified by legitimate business purposes and/or regulatory obligations.
In this context, KODO commits itself to solely engage with third parties whose security measures and best practices follow the ones upheld by this Policy, and to restrict data transfers to the minimum necessary to fulfill its purposes.
Retention of data
We store personal data exclusively when justified by a legal basis and specific purpose and keep your personal information for as long as it is required in order to fulfill the relevant purposes described in this Policy.
As a rule, we store personal data to ensure contract enforcements, to comply with legal and regulatory obligations and to meet our legitimate interests, always respecting the rights of the data holder and in accordance with applicable local laws.
Security of personal data
We have taken technical, administrative and legal measures to ensure that the data processing carried out by us is always in compliance with the applicable law and with high standards of information security.

In the event of incidents related to personal data, we will take all measures to mitigate the consequences in accordance with the provisions of the applicable legislation.
Kodo is committed to put its best efforts to keep your personal data secure, despite the fact that it is not feasible, technically, to ensure its inviolability in the event of any external attacks and/or system failures.
International transfers of personal data
Your data may be shared, transferred to and maintained on servers located outside of your state, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ from those of your jurisdiction. KODO can also share your personal data with third parties who have their servers allocated in other countries, in cases of cloud storage, for example.
In such cases, we will take all the reasonable measures to ensure that your personal data is treated securely and will require the partner in the country of destination to offer adequate privacy rights and protection to data subjects and/or that there are adequate safeguards to maintain compliance with the provisions in this Policy.
Your consent to this Policy followed by your submission of such information represents your agreement to that transfer.
