The Rules for Processing Personal Data of the Natural Persons Concerned with Whom the Company Will Interact as Part of Its Business Activity (the “Rules”)
The Rules have been drawn up to ensure the best possible implementation of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection – “GDPR”) which came into effect on 25 May 2018. The primary aim of the Rules is to provide the natural persons concerned with information mainly about what types of personal data the Company processes, what rights these natural persons have in relation to such processing, and for what period and what purposes such processing is being carried out.
Types of Personal Data
Personal data are any and all information about an identified or identifiable natural person concerned (the “data subject”). The data subject can be the Company’s debtor, direct contractual partner (a client or a service provider) or a representative/contact person of the Company’s direct contractual partner (a client or service provider), whether the contractual partner is a legal entity or a natural person. With respect to the areas of the Company’s business activities, in particular the following types of personal data are relevant:

In this case the data subject does not have the right to refuse personal data processing for the purpose of fulfilling a contract or performing statutory duties and other legal obligations. In the case of Legal Reasons, given the nature of the issues, in particular the following purposes are relevant (a demonstrative list):
- - performance of statutory duties and other legal obligations, such as tax obligations and obligations stipulated by specific laws;
- - fulfilment of contracts: typically, identification of the contractual partner or another contractual party, registration of claims, collection of debts and other disputes with contractual partners, and so on;
- - Legal Reasons: collection of the Company’s claims; monitoring of the Company’s debtors’ payment information for the purpose of preventing the creation of claims; seizure of evidence of activity as a means of preventing disputes; and keeping a registry of debtors.
Personal data will be processed for the above-stated purposes and for Legal Reasons to the extent necessary for the performance of these activities and for the period necessary for the completion of these activities or for the period directly stipulated by legal regulations. After that, the personal data will be erased or anonymized.
