Any personal data held by us for people who request information will be kept until you submit a request to remove your data. In any case your personal data will never be retained longer than Kinly is permitted by the data protection laws and/or statutory local retention periods.

We use 3rd party suppliers to store this information and have an agreement with them that protects your information.

We will ensure that when personal data is transferred to third countries that do not have an adequate level of protection, Kinly will implement appropriate safeguards, namely Standard Contractual Clauses, to adequately protect the personal data.

We have also implemented Standard Contractual Clauses to cover international data transfers between companies of Kinly.
