How do we protect your data?

SOTTAS SA establishes security in accordance with the principles of the nFADP and the GDPR.

The web server and CRM are therefore regularly updated with the latest security patches.

These measures are part of our organisation’s lifecycle and are implemented at all levels of the system. What’s more, security is an ongoing process, not a static element. From this perspective, technical and organisational measures are subject to technical progress and further development, just like risks and threats.
