The data lives on Digital Ocean, Google, and AWS. We use each service for different purposes to maximize protection of your data.

We have established clear legal grounds for all our data processing activities, whether that is through explicit consent, contractual obligations, or other legally permissible reasons.

Consent Management

Where consent is our lawful basis for data processing, we implement stringent consent mechanisms that are clear, specific, and user-friendly.
