Data Retention and Security

Data Retention

We do not keep your personal data any longer than is necessary. How long your personal data is retained depends on the purposes for which the data is processed and the applicable statutory retention periods.


Our commitment: Ensuring the security and confidentiality of your personal data is our priority. Taking into account the nature of your personal data and the risk of processing, we have put in place all appropriate technical and organizational measures as required by applicable legal provisions in particular (s2.6 of the Nigerian Data Protection Regulation (NDPR) and Article 32 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)) so as to ensure an appropriate level of security and, in particular, to prevent any accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, disclosure, intrusion of or unauthorized access to these data.

The security measures we have taken

a. Organisational measures: We have implemented and maintained various organizational measures intended to strengthen the awareness and accountability of our employees. We have programs in place designed both to ensure awareness and to promote the sharing of good practices and safety standards. In this context, a rich collection of documents on information security challenges and privacy protection have been made available to employees.

b. Technical measures: We strictly control physical and logical access to internal servers hosting or processing your personal data. We protect our network with state-of-the-art hardware devices (Firewall, IDS, DLP etc.) as well as architectures (including secure protocols like TLS 1.2) in order to prevent and limit the risk of cybercrime.

c. The evolution of our security systems: To maintain an appropriate level of security, we have internal processes in place based on the best standards (in particular, the ISO 27000 family of standards). We rely on dedicated experts to guarantee the best possible level of protection.

How to protect yourself

The personal data security and confidentiality data depends on everyone's best practices. We advise you not to disclose the passwords you use to access our Services to third parties, to log out of your profile and social account systematically (especially in the case of linked accounts), and to close the browser window at the end of your session, especially if you are accessing the Internet from a public computer. This will prevent other users from accessing your personal data. To avoid the risk of hacking, we recommend using different passwords for every online service you use. You should also take special care in deciding what information you send to us via the Service or email. We cannot be held responsible for theft of your data on a platform which is not managed by us. In addition, we strongly recommend that you do not distribute to third parties, any document issued by Josplay containing your personal data or other information related to your use of our Services or to publish these on social networks. If you decide to publish these documents on social media, you are responsible for consulting and understanding the general conditions of use, information security practices and privacy policies applicable to these third-party social networks. We cannot be held responsible for how data is processed, stored or disclosed on these platforms. To find out more about our measures with regard IT security, please consult Josplay’s IT security portal. Human beings and not robots will make the big decisions that affect you.

Management of security incidents

There is no such thing as ‘zero risk’ and even if we implement all the security measures recognised as appropriate, unforeseen things can happen. Therefore, we are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Service, or third party websites. We have specific procedures and resources in place to manage security incidents under the best possible conditions. We have also set up a specific procedure for assessing possible breaches of security that could lead to the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of or access to your personal data, for notifying the competent supervisory authority within the period provided for by applicable law, and for warning you when a breach is likely to result in a high risk to your rights and freedoms. Tests are carried out periodically to verify the functioning of the security installations and adequacy of the procedures and devices deployed.

International transfer of data

Ordinarily we do not transfer your data outside Nigeria. However, please note that some companies who provide data storage services to us run their services from outside the Federal Republic of Nigeria. We nonetheless only let that happen if we are satisfied with their levels of security. Keep in mind that when you give us personal information, it may be transferred or stored in a location outside the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

e. The right to data portability: Your right to data portability entails that you may ask us to provide you with your personal data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, and have such data transmitted directly to another controller, where technically feasible.

If you exercise this right, we will no longer process your personal data for such purposes.

We may, for example, deny your request for access when necessary to protect the rights and freedoms of other individuals, or refuse to delete your personal data if the processing of such data is necessary for compliance with legal obligations. The right to data portability, for example, does not apply if the personal data was not provided by you or if we process the data on grounds other than your consent or for the performance of a contract.
