The purposes of personal data processing mean the reasons for processing the personal data of data subjects (employees, clients) in our information systems on precisely defined legal bases.

The data subject whose personal data are being processed in our information systems for specifically defined purposes may exercise in writing or electronically the following rights:
(a) Right of access to personal data – the right to obtain confirmation as to whether or not your personal data are being processed as well as the right to have access to the data to the extent of the purpose and period of processing, the categories of the personal data of the data subject, the categories of recipients, the procedure regarding each automatic processing, or the consequences of such processing. As the controller, we have the right to use all reasonable measures to verify the identity of the data subject requesting access to the data, in particular for online services and identifiers (Article 15 and Recitals 63 and 64 of the Regulation).

(c) Right to erasure (right to be “forgotten”) of personal data that are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected and processed in the case of the withdrawal of consent under which the processing is carried out, the unlawful processing, or if personal data were collected in connection with the offer of an information company (for children), subject to compliance with the conditions set out in Article 17 and Recitals 65 and 66 of the Regulation.
(d) Right to restriction of processing – if you, as the data subject, contest the correctness of the personal data and other particulars within the meaning of Article 18 and Recital 67 of the Regulation, the processing of your personal data may be restricted by the temporary movement of the selected personal data to another processing system, making the selected personal data unavailable to users, or temporary removal of processing.
(e) Right to data portability means the right to transmit, on the basis of consent or performance of a contract, the personal data provided by you to our information system, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, to another controller, if technically feasible, subject to compliance with the conditions set out in Article 20 and Recital 68 of the Regulation, provided that the processing is carried out by automated means. The exercise of this right shall be without prejudice to Article 17 of the Regulation. The right to data portability shall not apply to processing necessary for performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
(f) Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedies, within the meaning of Article 77 of the Regulation, you, as the data subject, have the right to file a complaint with the Office for Personal Data Protection of the Slovak Republic if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you is in violation of the Regulation or the Personal Data Protection Act.

NOTICE: In order to comply with the principle of minimization, all personal data provided by you are a necessary legal or contractual requirement to fulfil the purpose of their processing. Failure to provide obligatory data necessary for the conclusion of a contract may result in the non-conclusion of a contractual relationship.

Those circumstances are: you contest the accuracy of the personal data; processing is unlawful but you oppose erasure; we no longer need the personal data for the purposes of our processing, but you require personal data for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; and you have objected to processing, pending the verification of that objection. Where processing has been restricted on this basis, we may continue to store your personal data. However, we will only otherwise process it: with your consent; for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person; or for reasons of important public interest.
7.7 You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data on grounds relating to your particular situation, but only to the extent that the legal basis for the processing is that the processing is necessary for: the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of any official authority vested in us; or the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party. If you make such an objection, we will cease to process the personal information unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

You may do so in the EU member state of your habitual residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement.
7.12 To the extent that the legal basis for our processing of your personal information is consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. Withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of processing before the withdrawal.
