We maintain tight controls to protect information about you against accidental or unlawful destruction or accidental loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, and against all other unlawful forms of processing. However, no company can guarantee the absolute security of internet communications as no technology is completely bulletproof.

NordLayer will retain End Users’ data in accordance with the Customer’s instructions.
In cases when NordLayer acts as a data controller, it stores personal data only for as long as it is necessary for the original purpose of collection or legal requirements. We determine the appropriate retention period for personal data on the basis of the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data being processed, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of the personal data, if we can achieve the purposes of the processing through other means, and if the information is necessary for the execution of our legal rights, obligations and fulfilment of our other duties (for example, record and bookkeeping). When we no longer have a legal ground to keep your personal data, it will either be securely disposed of, or de-identified through appropriate anonymization means.
For more information about specific retention periods, please reach out to us at [email protected].
