2. LEGAL FRAMEWORK, PRINCIPLES OF PERSONAL DATA PROCESSING
The basic legal framework for the processing of personal data consists of the GDPR, the OOU Act, the NSIS Act and other related legislation.
The basic principle of the processing of Data is that it is processed in a fair, lawful and transparent manner in relation to the data subject ("lawfulness, fairness and transparency"). Data is collected for specific, explicit and legitimate purposes and may not be further processed in a manner incompatible with those purposes; further processing for archiving purposes in the public interest, for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes is possible.
The data must be adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purpose for which they are processed ('data minimisation'); accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date; all reasonable steps must be taken to ensure that personal data which are inaccurate in relation to the purposes for which they are processed are erased or rectified without delay ('accuracy').
The data must be stored in a form which permits identification of data subjects for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which they are processed; personal data may be stored for a longer period if they are processed solely for archiving purposes in the public interest, for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes, provided that appropriate technical and organisational measures are implemented and complied with in order to safeguard the rights and freedoms of the data subject ('storage limitation').
The data must be processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the personal data, including protection by appropriate technical or organisational measures against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage ('integrity and confidentiality');
As a Data Controller, we take appropriate measures to provide the data subject with all information relating to the acquisition, processing, erasure and security of personal data in a concise, transparent, comprehensible and easily accessible manner using clear and plain language. As a Data Controller, we must comply with these obligations, which we do, among other things, through this DATA PROCESSING PRINCIPLE.
3. HOW AND WHAT CLIENT DATA WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT
Automated decision making, including profiling - may be used by the Controller when sending or displaying personalised communications or content. This is a specific method, which is any form of automated processing of Data consisting of using it to assess certain personal aspects relating to an individual, in particular to analyse or estimate aspects relating to their personal preferences, interests, economic situation, behaviour, location, health, reliability or movement. This means that the Data may be collected by the Controller in different situations. This Data may be centralized and analyzed by the Controller in order to assess and estimate the Client's personal preferences and interests. Based on such analysis, the Controller then sends or displays communications and or content tailored to the interests and needs of the Client. Subject to certain conditions, the Client has the right to object to the use of the Data for profiling purposes.
The Data is collected by the Controller:
- for the legal reason set out in Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR, i.e. because their processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the Client, as the data subject, is a party or for the implementation of measures taken prior to the conclusion of the contract at the request of the Client. The data is provided on a mandatory basis and the purpose of processing this Data is the conclusion and performance of the contractual relationship and related actions (communication with the Client regarding the services offered, etc.). The source of the Data is the Client or a person authorised by the Client. If the Data is not provided by the Client, the contract cannot be concluded with him/her, nor can negotiations be held for the purpose of concluding a contract, nor can the service requested by the Client be provided (e.g. sending specific information on the service, arranging an appointment, concluding a contract with the Administrator (hereinafter referred to as "Performance of the contract").
- for the legal reason set out in Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR Regulation, i.e. because the processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests of the Controller in order for the Controller to send the Client marketing commercial communications - newsletter, targeted advertising, personalised recommendations, etc. The data is provided voluntarily on the basis of the Client's consent. The source of the Data is the Client or a person authorized by the Client. If the Client does not provide the Data, the Client cannot receive commercial communications (newsletter) and the Client cannot use the Controller's websites and applications properly (hereinafter referred to as "OS and cookie consent").
- for the legal reason set out in Article 6, paragraph 1, letter c) of the GDPR Regulation, i.e. because the processing is necessary for the fulfilment of the legal obligation of the Controller to comply with legal requirements under specific legislation (e.g. Act No. 253/2008 Coll. on certain measures against the legalization of the proceeds of crime and terrorist financing, etc.). The source of the Data is the Client or a person authorised by the Client. If the Client does not provide the Data, no contract can be concluded with the Client or negotiated for the purpose of concluding a contract, nor can the service requested by the Client be provided (e.g. sending specific information, arranging a meeting, concluding a contract with the Controller, etc.) (hereinafter referred to as the "Legal Obligation").
- for the legal reason set out in Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR, i.e. because the processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests of the Controller, to enable the Controller to ensure the security of its platforms and services against abuse, to better understand the Client and ensure the proper functioning of its websites and applications, to ensure the fulfilment of the Controller's contractual obligations, etc. The Data is provided on a mandatory basis and the purpose of the processing of this Data is to ensure the security of the Administrator's websites/applications and their protection against misuse, as well as to better understand the Client's needs and requirements, to improve services and brand awareness, to ensure the proper functioning of the OS, advertising, and their improvement and protection through cookies, and to ensure the fulfillment of the contractual obligations of the Administrator towards third parties. The source of the Data is the Client or a person authorised by the Client. If the Client fails to provide the Data, it may affect our ability to provide our services to the Client ("Legitimate Interests").
4. WHO HAS ACCESS TO THE DATA - CATEGORIES OF DATA RECIPIENTS
Client data may be shared by the Controller to meet its legal obligations, to improve its services, or when it receives the Client's consent to such sharing.
Only trusted external processors/recipients may process data on behalf of the Controller. The Controller provides these external processors/recipients with only the information they need to provide the service and requires that they do not use the Data for any other purpose. The Controller makes every effort to ensure that all third parties with whom it works keep the Data properly secured. Services that require the processing of Data are provided by the Controllers, for example. External IT service providers such as platform providers with hosting services, administration and support of our databases as well as our software and applications that may contain Data (these services could sometimes involve accessing the Data in order to perform the required tasks), social media monitoring providers, Identity management, ratings and reviews, customer relationship management, web analytics and search engines, user-generated content processing tools, advertising, marketing, digital and social media agencies that deliver advertising, marketing services and campaigns, analyze their effectiveness and manage Client relationships.
The Controller is obliged to disclose data to third parties if it has such an obligation in order to comply with a legal obligation or to protect the rights, property, interests or safety of the Controller, its Clients, employees, external brokers. The Controller may also disclose the data if it has the Client's consent to do so or if permitted by law. The Administrator neither offers nor sells the data. The Data collected will not be shared with any third party, except as mentioned above.
5. WHERE WE STORE THE DATA
The Data collected by the Controller about the Client is stored and processed only in the EU or in countries that have committed to EU standards for the processing and security of personal data (USA). Outside the EU, personal data is only processed or stored with processors/recipients that are certified under the EU - U.S. Privacy Shield - these are Google LLC and Meta Platforms Ireland Limited.
6. HOW LONG WE KEEP THE DATA
The Client's data is retained for as long as necessary to fulfil the purpose for which the Controller received it, to meet the Client's needs or to comply with its legal obligations.
The criteria set out below shall apply to determine the retention period of the Data:
- if the Client is interested in the service offered by the Controller and or has concluded a contract with the Controller - Data in electronic form are retained for 10 years from their acquisition or from the termination of the contractual relationship with the Client, unless the legislation provides for a longer period (Performance of the contract),
- if the Client is interested in receiving OS, the Data is stored for 10 years from the date of acquisition (Consent to OS and cookies),
- if the Client contacts us with an enquiry or a request for feedback, the Data is retained for the time necessary to process the enquiry and for a further 10 years from the last interaction (Contract Performance),
- if the Client creates an account, the Controller retains the Data until the Client requests deletion or for 10 years from the last activity on the Client's account (Legitimate Interests)
- if the Client has consented to receive direct marketing communications, the Data is retained until the Client unsubscribes or asks the Controller to delete it, or for 10 years from the last interaction (OS and cookie consent); for consents given to the processing of personal data for marketing purposes, the retention period is 3 years from the date of consent,
- if cookies are placed on the Client's device, the Data is kept for the time necessary to achieve its purpose, depending on the type of cookie (OS and cookie consent),
- if the Controller copies the Client's OP/Passport and thereby fulfils legal requirements under specific legislation (e.g. Act No. 253/2008 Coll. on certain measures against the legalization of proceeds of crime and terrorist financing, etc.), the Data is retained for 10 years from the date of acquisition or from the termination of the contractual relationship with the Client or the completion of the transaction, unless the legislation provides for a longer period (Legal obligation with consent),
- if the Controller complies with the legal requirements under specific legislation (e.g. Act No. 253/2008 Coll. on certain measures against the legalization of proceeds of crime and terrorist financing, etc.), the Data are stored for 10 years from their acquisition, or from the termination of the contractual relationship with the Client or the execution of the transaction, unless the legislation provides for a longer period (Legal Obligation).
Some Data may be retained by the Data Controller in order to comply with its legal obligations and also to properly protect its legitimate interests or for statistical or record-keeping purposes.
If the purpose of retaining the Data has been fulfilled and the retention period has expired, the Data will be deleted or anonymised from the Controller's systems and records so that the Client can no longer be identified.
7. HOW THE DATA IS SECURED
The Data Controller makes every effort to properly protect the Data from the moment it is obtained until it is deleted, pseudonymised or anonymised. The Controller keeps and processes the Data secure to industry standards and has taken all reasonable security measures through conscientious internal processes and security policies to prevent misuse of the Data or unauthorised access to the Data. The Controller has contractually ensured that each authorised and trusted processor (see Article 4 of this document) treats the Data in the same manner.
As a result of the technical nature of the operation of data transmission on the Internet, the Controller cannot guarantee the security of Client Data transmitted to the Controller's website. Therefore, the security of any information transmitted in this manner is beyond the technical capabilities of the Controller.
