UPDATING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Keeping our customer information complete, accurate and up to date is vital. Unless specifically stated otherwise, when filling in the forms users must fill in all the required fields supplying data that are truthful, accurate, complete and up-to-date. Users are solely responsible for any loss or damage, whether direct or indirect, that may be entailed for Inventia Hosting or any third party through filling in the forms with false, inaccurate, incomplete or out-of-date data or through filling in the data of third parties instead of their own.
Inventia Hosting endeavours to ensure that any personal information provided and in its possession is as accurate, current and complete as necessary for the purposes for which Inventia Hosting uses that information.
Although we try to keep our database up to date by checking users’ details regularly, and updating our records as soon as we become aware of change you are the sole responsible party for maintaining the accuracy of your personal information, so you keep your personal data updated through your customer area.
However, Personal Information already published on the website (for example, Personal Information posted with comments to a blog) may not be updated.

COMMERCIAL COMMUNICATIONS BY EMAIL
RETENTION AND STORAGE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose(s) for which it was collected, including the security of our processing, to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations (e.g. audit, accounting and statutory retention terms), handling disputes, and for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims in the countries where we do business.
We are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. We take our security responsibilities very seriously, implementing the most appropriate physical, electronic, technical organizational and procedural safeguards, including staff training and awareness against unauthorized or unlawful access to personal data and against accidental alteration, loss, destruction of, or damage to, personal data.
We also take great care to ensure the security of this site. When our forms ask users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry – SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology. SSL is the industry standard method of encrypting personal information and credit card details so that they can be securely transferred over the Internet.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our accounting staff or a customer care representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information.
As a result, while we strive to protect your personal data, you acknowledge that we shall have no liability to you or any third party for loss, misuse, disclosure or alteration of such information.

Inventia Hosting has been processing millions of data records for several years and has never had a data breach. In the unlikely event that we believe that the security of your personal data in our control may have been compromised, we will notify you through the email address provided within 24 hours of Inventia Hosting learning of the breach and provided with detailed information as outlined in the GDPR. We will then collaborate with the supervisory authority competentto ensure impacted users are notified in a timely manner.
