In case of a data breach, all impacted parties and proper authorities will be notified. Our action plan in case of a data breach includes:

- Evaluate the risks associated with the breach, including collecting and documenting all available evidence of the breach.
- Call upon the expertise of, or consult with, relevant staff in the particular circumstances.
- Engage an independent cyber security or forensic expert as appropriate.
