Employees and stakeholders are required to use strong, unique passwords and periodically update them to minimize the risk of unauthorized access to sensitive data.

    • Secure Storage and Encryption: Our IT infrastructure is designed to prioritize data security, employing encryption protocols for both data in transit and data at rest. This encryption ensures that even if unauthorized parties manage to gain access to the data, it remains indecipherable and unusable without the appropriate decryption keys.

    • Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs): In our interactions with external parties, such as partners, vendors, or collaborators, Sleeve Studios establishes clear expectations regarding the confidentiality of sensitive information through the use of legally binding non-disclosure agreements (NDAs). These agreements legally bind the involved parties to maintain the confidentiality of disclosed information.

This open and collaborative approach enables us to harness the full potential of our talented workforce and ensures that no valuable innovation goes unnoticed.

    Prompt reporting of inventions and discoveries is crucial as it allows us to identify and recognize valuable IP assets within our organization.
