1. Length of time personal data are stored
This notice applies to the processing of personal data performed by Overkiz, on the behalf of third parties, e.g. our professional customers (such as manufacturer of connected equipment, i.e. the Data Controller).
Overkiz respects the principle that any processing of personal data operated on the behalf on its professional customers is done in a secured way. All the data processed remain the property of the Data Subject and/or the Data Controller.
Overkiz is not responsible for the final using and sharing of personal data by any Data Controller, but we recommend hardly our professional customers to process any personal data within the strict compliance of the applicable law.
Overkiz keeps the information of any Data Subject secure and confidential by taking appropriate technical and organisational measures against its unauthorised or unlawful processing and against its accidental loss, destruction or damage.

As Data Processor, Overkiz may exceptionally disclose Personal Data that we collect in the following limited cases:
1- request(s) of the Data Controller: if the Data Controller duly required Overkiz to disclose it. In this case, although Overkiz strongly recommends that our professional customers comply fully with the law, the final use and sharing of Data is done under the sole liability of the Data Controller.
2- subcontracting: if the disclosure is mandatory for our subcontractors to perform a service (such as the hosting of data for Overkiz). In this case, the disclosure is subject that the said subcontractor ensures satisfactory data security with regard to confidentiality, integrity and accessibility in connection with the processing of personal data.
3- legal requirement: if Overkiz is required to do so to comply with a legal requirement or request from a competent court, regulator or other authority;
4- statistical purpose: any anonymous information collected gives us a better understanding of users' preferences and habits and helps us improve our services in your best interests. Because anonymized Non-Personal Data does not allow you to be identified, we could be led to share such anonymous data with third parties (such as consultants), unless prohibited by law or else it is expressly forbidden by the Data Controller.
In any case, Overkiz will take appropriate measures to ensure that any personal information about the Data Subject that Overkiz discloses to a third party will be used for the sole purposes for which it was provided.
