Information about General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
What is GDPR?
GDPR is an EU-wide privacy and data protection law that regulates how EU residents’ data is protected by companies and enhances the control the EU residents have, over their personal data.
The GDPR is relevant to any globally operating company and not just the EU-based businesses and EU residents. Our customers’ data is important irrespective of where they are located, which is why we have implemented GDPR controls as our baseline standard for all our operations worldwide.
What is personal data?
Any data that relates to an identifiable or identified individual. GDPR covers a broad spectrum of information that could be used on its own, or in combination with other pieces of information, to identify a person. Personal data extends beyond a person’s name or email address. Some examples include financial information, political opinions, genetic data, biometric data, IP addresses, physical address, sexual orientation, and ethnicity.
The Data Protection Principles include requirements such as:
- Personal data collected must be processed in a fair, legal, and transparent way and should only be used in a way that a person would reasonably expect.
- Personal data should only be collected to fulfil a specific purpose and it should only be used for that purpose. Organizations must specify why they need the personal data when they collect it.
- Personal data should be held no longer than necessary to fulfil its purpose.
- People covered by the GDPR have the right to access their own personal data. They can also request a copy of their data, and that their data be updated, deleted, restricted, or moved to another organization.
Why is GDPR important?
GDPR adds some requirements regarding how companies should protect individuals’ personal data that they collect and process. It also raises the stakes for compliance by increasing their enforcement.
In relation to the Personal Data we hold about you, you have rights under the data protection laws. If you would like to exercise, or discuss, any of these rights, please do contact us using the details set out below. At our discretion we may require you to prove your identity before providing the requested information.
You have the right to:
Right to access: upon your request, we will provide confirmation as to whether or not your personal data are being processed and where that is the case, access to the personal data. This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you. If you require multiple copies of your personal data, we may charge a reasonable administration fee.
Right to rectification: you have the right to require that any incomplete or inaccurate personal data that we process about you is amended.
Right to erasure (‘right to be forgotten’): you are entitled to ask us to delete or remove Personal Data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your Personal Data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. There are also certain exceptions where we may not always be able to comply with your request for erasure, for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request. One example is where the personal data is required for compliance with law or in connection with claims;
Right to restriction of processing: you have the right to request that we restrict our processing of your Personal Data in certain circumstances, such as where you believe such data to be inaccurate, our processing is unlawful or we no longer need to process such data for a particular purpose, but where we are not able to delete the data due to a legal or other obligation.
Right to data portability: you have the right to request that we transmit the Personal Data we hold in respect of you to another data controller.
Right to object to processing: where we are processing your personal data based on legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. However, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes.
Right to withdraw consent: if you have consented to our processing of your Personal Data, you have the right to withdraw you consent at any time, free of charge.
Right to lodge a complaint: if you are concerned about any aspect of our privacy practices, including the way we’ve handled your personal information, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority in Cyprus, the Office of the Commissioner for Personal Data Protection (dataprotection.gov.cy).
Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
