When we refer to personal data, we mean any information, of any nature and regardless of its support, including sound and image, concerning an identified or identifiable natural person.

Some personal data is mandatory and, in case of lack or insufficiency of such data, JPS and SEDACOR will not be able to provide the product or service in question, so JPS and SEDACOR will inform Customers of the mandatory nature of data provision.

The length of time for which data is stored and retained varies depending on the purpose for which the information is processed.

Indeed, there are legal requirements that data must be retained for a minimum period of time. Thus, and whenever there is no specific legal requirement, the data will be stored and kept only for the minimum period necessary for the purposes that motivated their collection or their subsequent processing or, for the period of time authorized by the National Commission for Data Protection, after which they will be eliminated.

Under the Personal Data Protection Act, the holder of the data is guaranteed the right to access, update, correct or delete their personal data, which may take place through the various contacts that JPS and SEDACOR provide.

JPS and SEDACOR are committed to ensuring the protection of the security of personal data that is made available to us, having approved and implemented strict rules in this area. Compliance with these rules is an undeniable obligation of all those who legally access them.
