# How do we store your data?
Negative Space Studios securely stores your data on servers that are located geographically within the EU or, in the case of third-party software which is necessary for the running of our business, within software platforms that comply fully with EU data export and security restrictions.
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know (such as accountants, lawyers or regulatory bodies).
Negative Space Studios will only retain your personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for or for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
We have put in place written internal data retention policies and proceedures for employees to follow that clearly outline how long different types of client data should be stored for. These documents also clearly outline the processes that employees need to follow when deleting, processing or transferring any data.
As a company we regularly review and update our processes to ensure that we remain compliant with the latest data protection legislation. You can request our internal policy documents from us by contacting us.
