We apply appropriate physical, technical, and administrative safeguards to protect personal data from misuse. These safeguards include, among others, control and filtering of network traffic, use of encryption techniques and safe data centers, appropriate access control, controlled granting of access rights and supervision of their use, giving instructions to personnel processing personal data, and risk management related to planning, implementation, and maintenance of our services.

After measurement, blood samples are stored for quality control purposes, after which they are either anonymized or disposed of according to our internal processes.
