Occasionally, Campus Vesta calls on an external processor. This means, among other things, that we temporarily pass on data to third parties for certain tasks or investigations. If this happens, Campus Vesta will always ensure that your data is treated confidentially and be used in a safe manner. Campus Vesta always records this contractually with these processors. For example, these processors will never be allowed to use your data on their own initiative and your data must be deleted as soon as those processors have completed the assignment.
