4./ Principles of data processing

  •  Legality, fairness and transparency:

The Data Controller basically and in most cases collects and processes personal data obtained directly from the Data Subject. The processing of the personal data of the Data Subject is always lawful and fair and transparent for the Data Subject. The Data Controller makes the currently valid wording of the Guide publicly available and accessible continuously on the Website free of charge, without obligation. The Data Controller shall not process the supplied personal data for dishonest purposes or purposes other than those set out in this Guide and shall always act in accordance with the applicable legislation in the course of its data processing activities.

The Data Controller may process personal data only for the clear and lawful purposes indicated in the Guide. If the Data Controller intends to process the personal data already supplied for other purposes than specified above, the Data Controller shall inform the Data Subject fully and in advance (primarily by e-mail). In order to provide a complete overview of the individual data processing purposes, the Data Controller gives information in this Guide on the purpose, duration and legal basis of all personal data. The Data Controller applies these requirements as binding on itself.

 

  •  Storage limitation:

The Data Controller stores the personal data of the Data Subject in a form that enables the identification of the data subjects only for the time necessary for accomplishing the purpose of the processing of the personal data.

The Data Subject can also help with keeping the data accurate and up to date, by reporting changes in their data or rectifying the data provided.

 

  • Principle of data protection, integrity and confidentiality:
