Those measures may include, for example, specific contracts containing the EU Commission's standard contractual clauses or another appropriate measure.
8. Data security
We will take all reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal data.
Please be aware that, while we place a high priority on the security of all information that we hold and process and we endeavour to provide robust, commercially reasonable security at all times, no security system can prevent every possible kind of security breach.
9. Data retention
