Purposes for Processing Personal Data

cyway is processing personal data only for a specific purpose in the interest of the client relationship. In particular for:

  • Client on-boarding processes to verify your identity
  • Managing our relationship with existing clients
  • Process payments
  • Providing services requested by clients
  • Meeting our on-going legal, regulatory, and compliance obligations
  • Ensuring security and safety for clients, employees and partners

Access to Personal Data

cyway applies the highest security standards and undertakes appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect your personal data against loss or other forms of unlawful processing. Data located at cyway is accessible to internal employees only. We follow the least privilege principle where access is minimized to employees only if and as long as they are assigned to a project or process.

Under some circumstances, cyway may embed videos from external sources if it helps to enrich the user experience (e.g. YouTube, Vimeo). Such embedded objects always enable all available privacy features (e.g. encryption, disabling third-party cookies, HTTP security header) to limit disclosure of personal data to outside entities.

Payment handling might be done by an external service provider. Such extended data processing would be indicated at the beginning of the exchange.

Employees of cyway are subject to extensive secrecy obligations. We make sure that personal data is only accessible by those employees who need access to do their job.

Retention time of Personal Data

cyway will only retain personal data as long as necessary to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected. This retention time will comply with legal, regulatory and internal policy requirements. After that retention period the data will be deleted irreversibly.
