Where we process and store your personal data?

DECTA entities themselves process and store personal data either Member States of the European Union or in the United Kingdom, which the European Commission has deemed as a third country ensuring an adequate level of personal data protection. 

Data processors We rely upon are usually located in the European Economic Area (EEA). Only a few carefully selected data processors (such as Google) process data outside the EEA. In addition, when We manage Our social media accounts, We receive and provide data to social network platform operators (e.g. LinkedIn, Facebook), which also operate outside the European Union, e.g. in the USA. We closely follow practices of data protection supervisory authorities and the guidelines on the transfer of data outside the European Union, and We diligently consider conditions, under which data are transferred and subsequently processed and stored after the transfer outside the European Union. 

Please note that taking into account the complex nature of the Services provided by Us, Your data can be processed by independent controllers or their staff outside the United Kingdom and European Union, for instance, by international card payment networks such as Visa and Mastercard. 

To ensure an adequate level of security of data and to guarantee legitimate transfer of data, We conclude Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the European Commission for data transfer outside the EEA or follow other grounds and conditions set out in the GDPR and UK GDPR.


All information You provide to Us is stored on Our secure servers. Any payment transactions will be encrypted using SSL technology. Where We have given You (or where You have chosen) a password which enables You to access certain parts of Our site, You are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask You not to share a password with anyone.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although We will do Our best to protect Your personal data, We cannot guarantee the security of Your data transmitted to Our site; any transmission is at Your own risk. Once We have received Your information, We will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

Data storage and retention

Personal data specified in this Privacy Policy shall be stored and otherwise processed for no longer than the period necessary to achieve the purposes for which the data were collected. Where We process Your personal data to carry out Our contractual obligations, We will retain the data throughout the validity of the relevant contract and after the termination of a contractual relationship We will either (i) delete the unnecessary data; (ii) retain certain categories of personal data in accordance with the requirements and duration set by the applicable legislation (for instance, laws related to AML and CFT compliance and tax compliance, etc.); (iii) retain certain categories of data based on Our legitimate interest (for instance, for the purposes of legal claims and defence of Our legal  and contractual interests). 

In the event We rely on Your consent for personal data processing, We will retain it until You revoke such consent or will delete it earlier, if the personal data is no longer necessary. 

Please note that We keep the personal data of candidates that have applied for a position with Us for no more than 6 months. If there is an open position competition, the 6-month data retention period starts after the closure of the competition. However, You can always provide Us with consent to keep Your data for a longer time period if that is in Your interests We keep Your data until a suitable position for You opens with Us.
