Likewise, we shall ensure that requirements for data processing stated in applicable legislation, as well as requirements from the State, public authorities, customers, stakeholders and employees are met with regard to confidentiality, accessibility, accuracy and traceability. Furthermore, we shall always strive to process data within the EU/EEA.
