At the same time, we understand that personal data is an extremely sensitive matter, and we take your privacy very seriously. To avoid making you feel uneasy in this regard, we’ve developed this privacy policy, which addresses every little detail of our work with your personal data.

RIBERATEC uses cookies (small text files placed on your device) and similar technologies to provide our online services and to help collect data. The text in a cookie often consists of a string of numbers and letters that uniquely identifies your computer, but it can contain other information as well.

We use cookies and similar technologies for several purposes, including:

In addition to standard cookies, we can use other similar technologies to store and read data files on your computer. This is typically done to improve speed and performance by storing certain files locally. Similar to standard cookies, these technologies can also be used to store a unique identifier for your computer, which can then be used to track behaviour.

Notice to End Users

RIBERATEC's intention is to deliver its services to companies and organizations. Your use of RIBERATEC's website may be subject to your organization's policies, if any.

How Long Personal Data is Stored

RIBERATEC retains personal data for as long as necessary to provide the services and the feedback you have requested, or for other essential purposes, such as complying with our legal obligations, enforcing our agreements. Because these needs can vary for different data types, actual retention periods may vary. The criteria used to determine the retention periods include:

Is the data sensitive? If so, a shortened retention time would generally be appropriate, which amounts to up to five years.

Is RIBERATEC subject to a legal, contractual, or similar obligation to retain the data? Examples can include mandatory data retention laws in the applicable jurisdiction, government orders to preserve data relevant to an investigation, or data that must be retained for the purposes of litigation.
