Who has access to personal or sensitive data and to whom is it disclosed?

Access to data is restricted to the permanent staff of BKP who are bound by statutory and contractual confidentiality agreements. Disclosure to third parties would take place only with the explicit prior approval of the individual concerned, or if it is a legal obligation.

Confidential data entrusted to BKP in the context of this specific project is accessible only to members working on the project, applying the user access management system run on our server. If required by clients, access to such data can be conditioned on the signing of specific confidentiality agreements.

What are individuals’ rights and how can they be exercised?
