  1. If you are a visitor to our site, we process your personal data as cookies as outlined above due to a legitimate interest, which lies in our interest in monitoring the use of and improving our services. We will only process your personal data for the above purpose. The provision of the above-listed information is not one of our requirements, but without providing such data, some features of our website may be limited. This personal data will not be used for any purely automated decision-making, including profiling based on such decision-making.
  2. If you are a job candidate with us, we process your personal data due to a legitimate interest, which lies in our interest in filling our open job positions and in your interest in finding the employment you seek. The purpose of processing is therefore the finding of an appropriate candidate for our open position. We use the data you provide us with to contact you regarding the status of the selection procedure. We will only process your personal data for the above purpose and, if you are interested in a particular position, we will process your personal data only for the purpose of filling this position, or for positions similar to your desired employment position. Providing the above information is our requirement, and without providing us with this information, we cannot include you in the selection procedure. This personal data will not be used for any purely automated decision making, including profiling.
    If you are a job candidate with us, you may also grant us your permission to process personal data, specifically to process data for the purpose of selection procedures for a period of five years, and potentially, permission to send you the business and marketing communications of the administrator, regarding events and workshops. The legal basis for this stated processing is your permission, which we will not force you to grant, and which is granted entirely on a voluntary basis on your part; you may even only grant us one of the particular permissions, as they are entirely separate. Granting permission is not a contractual requirement on our part, however, the permission to keep your data for the purposes of selection procedures for a period of 5 years will enable us to contact you over a longer period of time and will allow us to offer you employment positions with us for an extended period. Consent to the sending of business and marketing communications and invitations to events, tradeshows and workshops will allow us to send you information which, in our view, could be useful and beneficial for you, and we will decidedly not unnecessarily bother you excessively.
  3. If you want to participate in one of the events held at our company offices or organized by our company, we process your personal data for the performance of the contract, where our commitment is to enable you to participate in the event organized by us, and we need to identify you to fulfill this commitment to allow you access to the event. The data you provide us is used to identify you and possibly to contact you in a situation where a change of the organization of the event occurs. We will only process your personal data for the aforementioned purpose. Providing the above data is our requirement, and without providing this data, we cannot grant you access to the event. This personal data will not be used for any purely automated decision-making, including profiling.
    If you want to participate in one of the events held at our company offices or organized by our company, you may also grant us your permission to process your personal data, and that for the purposes of inclusion in our record of job applicants for a period of five years, and potentially, granting us permission to send you the business and marketing communications of the administrator, and invitations to events, tradeshows and workshops. The legal basis for this stated processing is the granting of your permission, which we will not force you to grant, and which is granted entirely on a voluntary basis; you may even only grant us one of the permissions, as they are entirely separate. Granting permission is not a contractual requirement on our part, however, granting permission to process your data for the purposes of inclusion in our job applicant record for a period of 5 years will enable us to contact you in the event of a job opening. Consent to the sending of business and marketing communications and invitations to events, tradeshows and workshops will allow us to send you information which, in our view, could be useful and beneficial for you (for example, invitations to similar events), and we will decidedly not unnecessarily bother you excessively.
  4. If you are one of our customers or suppliers, we process your personal data on the grounds that it is necessary for the performance of the contract or the fulfillment of legal obligations (especially tax and accounting) or due to legitimate interest (which consists, in particular, of enabling us to improve our services and contact you with our offers). The purpose of processing is primarily to ensure the smooth implementation of our business relationship and to further develop joint business cooperation. This way, we can use your name, last name, and email address to send you business and marketing communications of the administrator, and invitations to events, tradeshows and workshops, that is, so that we can provide you with information which, in our view, could be interesting and beneficial for you. We can also use your personal information for our internal needs, relating to, namely, monitoring your satisfaction, optimizing and improving the quality of products and services provided, developing new products and reducing risks. The provision of personal data for purposes of performance of a contract and for the fulfillment of a statutory obligation is our requirement, and failure to provide them may be a reason not to conclude the contract or to terminate further business cooperation. However, processing your personal data for the purpose of sending business communications is not our contractual requirement and you may at any time reject it and will not affect our other relationships. Just send us an e-mail with the appropriate request at hr@certicon.cz or different address from which you received the business message from us. This personal data will not be used for any purely automated decision-making, including profiling.
  5. If you are involved in the development and testing of our products, all detailed information will be given to you before commencement of the given project, as each project is original and the information cannot be provided on a general basis. However, we will always process your name, surname, and email address, so we can contact you. Providing this data is our requirement.

WHO HAS ACCESS TO YOUR PERSONAL DATA

In the context of providing some activities, your personal data may be processed for us by processors, or potentially may be provided to recipients; this will involve, namely, the following entities:

  • Entities that provide us with server, Internet, cloud, or IT services;
  • Entities that provide accounting services for us;
  • Entities that provide us with legal services;
  • Entities that collaborate with us on developing and testing our products,
  • Processors who provide other services for our company – consulting, audits and other external services.

Given the frequency of our projects, in some cases we may even be placed in the position of joint administrator, together with our partner. If such a case arises, we will inform you of this in the given, specific case.

DURATION OF PERSONAL DATA PROCESSING

We will process your personal data for as long as we provide our services or fulfill a mutual agreement, for the duration of our legitimate interest or for the time necessary to perform archiving and other duties under applicable laws, such as the Accounting Act, the Archiving and Bookkeeping Act, the Value-Added Tax Act and others.

We will store your personal data for the period necessary for providing our services and completing the required transactions or for other necessary purposes, such as compliance with our legal obligations, dispute resolution, and legal enforcement of our agreements. These requirements may vary for various types of data and in the context of various situations, and therefore the actual period of storing information may differ significantly. The criteria determining the period for which we store data, include:

  • How long is personal data needed for providing services and ensuring the operations of our company? This includes activities such as maintaining and improving the performance of these services, maintaining the security of our systems, and maintaining appropriate business and financial records. This is a generally valid rule, which is the basis for determining the retention time in most cases.
  • Are you providing us with your personal data with the expectation that we will maintain this data as long as you do not expressly desire to have the data deleted? If yes, we will delete this data only on the basis or your explicit request.
  • Have we introduced and announced a specific time of maintaining a certain type of data? If yes, we will definitely never exceed this period.
  • Have you provided consent with the extension of the period of maintaining data? If yes, we will store the data in accordance with your consent.
  • Do we have legal, contractual or similar obligations to store data? Examples include laws regulating mandatory data retention, government regulation to store data related to an investigation, or data to be retained for the purposes of litigation.

In view of the above criteria, which may vary from time to time (especially with respect to changes in legislation), we cannot generally establish retention periods in these Principles. However, if you contact us (e.g. by e-mail at gdpr@certicon.cz), we will always tell you the exact amount of time your personal data will be processed.
