The laws in some countries may not provide as much legal protection for your information as in the EEA. DENSO has concluded strict internal and external agreements in these countries (based upon the most recent EU Standard Contractual Clauses) in order to ensures the protection of your personal data in these countries. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.  DENSO has also concluded strict agreements with all parties processing personal data on our behalf.

The transmission of information via the Internet is never 100% secure. Though we cannot 100% guarantee the security of your information transmitted to our site, and we will do our best to protect your personal data, any transmission provided to us via the Internet is ultimately at your own risk. Once we have received your personal data, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.  All information you provide to DENSO is stored on secure servers. Any payment transactions will be encrypted.


How Long We Keep Your Personal data

We observe all legal, and otherwise industry-accepted reasonable retention periods for your personal data.  These periods can also be shorter, for example, if you notify us that you no longer wish us to keep this personal data.  They can also be longer, if there is a legal requirement or otherwise legally acceptable exception.  In all cases, we will never keep your information longer that strictly necessary under (national or EU) law or for the execution of the activities and obligations arising from any relevant legal agreement.
