Projects’ Confidentiality

We understand the importance of IP and secrecy of our clients' confidential information. We see this as the critical element for maintaining a long-term relationship with our clients. We are committed to protecting customer IP throughout the project cycle.
Key areas of our IP protection policy & project confidentiality include:
