Data Security

SDM has implemented technical and organizational measures to avoid security breaches and unauthorized access to personal data, as well as its illegal destruction or usage.

However, due to the unsafe nature of open networks such as the Interne, despite all its efforts, SDM will not be able to ensure the full and absolute inviolability of the information it receives.
