Access to Data is restricted to our employees that need to have access to it and have received training on adhering to strict standards of confidentiality concerning the use of personal Data. To ensure the confidentiality and security of the information that Beter gathers online, we use networks for protected information, among others, for fire walls and standard password protectors in the sector. Even though we have endeavoured to create secure, trustworthy web sites for our visitors, please bear in mind that Internet is generally not considered an entirely secure environment and that, therefore, the confidentiality of the Data that you provide and material transmitted via our web sites or by e-mail cannot be guaranteed by Beter. Therefore, we will not be held responsible for the security of your Data while it is in transit via Internet to us.

On providing us with your Data, you are explicitly authorising its possible transmission to other companies within the Beter and/or affiliates and thereby authorising transmission of your Data to other countries.
