I. General Information
In view of our organisation’s business activities, we are required to process certain personal data, and in particular to do so for the purposes of performance of contractual duties. Without your personal data, we would not be able to provide our products and/or services at all.
We also process your personal data above and beyond what is legally required. This is done for the purpose of caring for you and our other customers, in order for us to develop further our business relationships and to be able to approach you with a targeted offering of our products and/or services. In order to do this, we need to obtain your consent. In view of the orientation of our products and/or services, we will enforce a minimum age requirement for the granting of valid consent for the processing of personal data without the permission of the legal guardians of data subjects.

When processing your personal data, we honour and respect the highest possible standards of personal data protection, and in particular we abide by the following principles:
(a) We always process your personal data for a clearly and comprehensibly established purpose by established means and in an established manner, and only for the period that is necessary with respect to the purposes of their processing; we process only the exact personal data of clients, and we ensure that their processing corresponds to the established purposes and is necessary for the attaining of those purposes;
(b) We protect your personal data as classified information; we therefore process the personal data of clients in a manner that ensures the security of the data and that prevents any kind of unauthorised or random access to clients’ personal data, their alteration, destruction, or loss, unauthorised transmission, other unauthorised processing, or other misuse;
(c) We always inform you clearly about the processing of your personal data and about your entitlement to accurate and complete information about the circumstances of that processing as well as about your other related rights;

II.2. Purposes of and legal basis for processing
II.2.1. Processing of personal data without your consent
This usually involves situations when you are required to provide personal data as a condition in order for us to be able to provide you with our products and/or services, or when we are entitled to process your personal data obtained in some other manner.
(a) By law, we are entitled to process your personal data without your consent for the following purposes in order to comply with our legal obligations:
(i) to prevent damages to the assets of our organisation;
(ii) to prevent the perpetration of fraud against our organisation;
(iii) to perform any duties involving client identification and due diligence under the Act on the Prevention of Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing;
(b) conclusion or performance of an agreement with you.
This mainly involves the actual realisation of contractual relations or other contractual performance between you and our organisation. Personal data are necessary inter alia to make possible the realising of contractual relations without excessive legal risks, including negotiations with you over the concluding or amending of an agreement.
(c) protection of rights and of legally protected interests, especially for:
(i) protecting the rights and legally protected interests of our organisation, collecting receivables, securing or otherwise claiming receivables, and the advancement and development of services provided;
(ii) negotiations with parties interested in the assignment of a client’s debt or in some other form of succession or transfer of receivables, including associated implementation, and other subsequent dealings with third parties, and in particular the informing of providers of related credit protection etc.;
(iii) the resolution of disputes, and in particular for lawsuits or other dispute resolution.
(d) our own legitimate interests.
This mainly involves situations where there is a contractual and/or customer relationship between you and our organisation.
II.2.2. Processing of personal data with your consent
This generally involves situations when you voluntarily consent to our processing of your personal data. On the basis of your consent, our organisation processes your personal data for the following purposes:
(a) exercising rights and performing duties arising from an agreement with you; this is a situation where your personal data is processed for the performance of an agreement;
(b) client care; these are activities that do not represent contractual performance or any other legal framework for the processing of personal data and that include the following:
(i) market research;
(ii) monitoring clients’ behaviour on our organisation’s website in connection with the services offered (this purpose does not involve the mere obtaining of information about the behaviour of users visiting the website of our organisation by means of cookies as described below in the paragraph on electronic means of communication and mobile applications);
(c) offering of products and services; this mainly involves the dissemination of information and the offering of our organisation’s products and services by various means (mail, electronic media including e-mail and messages sent to mobile devices, telephone calls, and through the website).
Providing personal data for the purposes of contractual performance and providing personal data for the purposes of our caring for you as a customer are our contractual requirements, and failure to provide the data may result in failure to conclude an agreement or our inability to provide adequate customer care.
II.3. Extent of processing of clients’ personal data
Our organisation processes your personal data to the extent necessary for the attaining of the purposes set forth above. We process contact information (contact addresses, telephone numbers, e-mail addresses, fax numbers, or other similar contact information), identifying information (first and last name, date of birth, address of permanent residence, and also the Company ID number and VAT number for clients who are individual entrepreneurs), and surveillance video.
II.4. Manner of processing of the personal data of individual entrepreneurs
The manner in which our organisation processes your personal data includes manual and automated processing in the information systems of our organisation and in material form.

Before any forwarding of your personal data to a third party, we always enter into a written agreement with that party containing the same guarantees for the processing of personal data with which our organisation complies in accordance with its legal duties.
II.5. Recipients of personal data
Access to your personal data is granted mainly to the employees of our organisation in connection with the performance of duties at work that require them to handle the personal data of clients, but only to the extent that is necessary in the particular case in question and while complying with all security measures.
In addition, your personal data are forwarded to third parties that take part in the processing of the personal data of our organisation’s clients; they may also be granted access to these personal data for other reasons in compliance with legislation.
In particular, the forwarding of personal data is directed towards:
(a) the law firm that represents us;
(b) our accounting and tax consultancy agency;
(c) our marketing agency;
(d) processors who provide us with server, website, cloud, and IT services.

If we determine that data are no longer needed for any of the purposes for which they have been processed, we delete them. With regard to certain purposes for the processing of personal data, however, we have already made an internal evaluation of the usual period during which personal data may be used, and once that period has lapsed, we make an especially careful evaluation of the need for processing the relevant personal data for the purpose in question.
