An identifiable natural person is one whose identity can be ascertained, directly or indirectly, by reference to an identification identifier, such as a name, identity number, location data, online identity card, or one or more factors matching to the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
This also applies to more personal information such as habits, preferences, biometric data, etc.

The collection of PD is a form of processing, such as storing, organizing, structuring, altering, retrieving, searching for information, using, disclosing, deleting, or destroying.
The enterprise has to collect PD (ie personal information) for the effective execution of everyday business functions and services and in some occasions for the compliance with the legislation and / or the regulations that it applies.

Our obligations include:
- The principle of accountability in respect with the 6 principles of processing the PD (legitimacy, objectivity and transparency, purpose limitation, minimization of PD, accuracy of PD, limitation of storage period, security, integrity, and confidentiality).
- Every process of the PD is legitimate only if one of the following 6 conditions applies:

- The process of the PD is necessary for undertaking a contract, where the subject is a party.
- Processing is necessary for the compliance with the legal obligation of the controller
- Processing is necessary to safeguard the vital interest of the natural person
- Processing is necessary for the fulfillment of a duty to the public interest or during the exercise of public authority entrusted to controller
- Processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party, unless the interest or fundamental rights and freedoms of the natural person prevail
In addition, we implement the appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect our company and our customers against unauthorized access or alteration, tampering or destruction of the PD we have in our possession. Specifically:
- We control data collection, storage and processing practices, including security measures, to protect against access to systems.
- Access to personal information is limited and controlled, and these natural persons are subject to strict contractual obligations of confidentiality.
- In case that outside partners (for maintenance or support purposes) have potential access to PD, certain appendices of the existing cooperation contracts cover the requirements of the Regulation.
Throughout the entire processing cycle of PD (from collection to destruction of the PD), we take the appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of PD. Similar measures are required by third parties handling or processing PD.
Our services, products and website are not indented for children under the age of 16. We do not, to our knowledge, process PD of any children under the age of 16.
Within the scope of the Rights granted to you by the Regulation, you can view and request a correction or limitation of processing or deleting the PD (see in detail your rights in Section5.1)
In such cases, you are requested to fill in a subject access request (SAR). We are obliged to respond to you within one month of the receipt of the SAR.
Should you ever wish to exercise any of these rights, please contact the Enterprise.
The exercise of the rights of a natural person can always be done under the existing legislation (eg. you cannot ask for a deletion of your PD when the labor law requires to be retained for 10 years).
Every time you use our services, our goal is to provide you with access to your own PD. If this data is incorrect, we put efforts to provide you ways for quick update or deletion of this data –unless we have to maintain this information due to relevant legislation or for legitimate purposes.
