Rights of the data subject 

1. Right to information

You hold the right to request your information of the Administrator, including your personal data, the extent of your personal data and for what purpose we process your personal data. We will provide you with this information in accordance with the principles stated in the General Regulations within the 90-day time limit, excluding outstanding situations. In the event of an outstanding situation, we will inform you in due time regarding the time limit’s extension. Should you request your information on which we keep a record, to be shared, we will first and foremost need to verify that you are in fact the individual pertaining to this information. Thus, we ask that you provide adequate identification in your request for information. If necessary, we hold the right to request additional information regarding your identification before we will provide you with your personal data.

We subsequently hold the right to decline requests for information, which are groundless, or rather unreasonably repeated, or their acquisition requires disproportionate effort or would be difficult to obtain (typically from backup systems, archival records, etc.).

2. Data actualization, amendment rights

Since your personal information may change over time (such as a change made to your last name), we would be pleased if you were to inform us when there has been a change, so that we may keep your personal information up to date and to avoid or any errors. The submission of information regarding a change in data is essential to enable the Administrator to properly perform their activities.

This also relates to your right to amend the personal data, which we keep on record about you. Should you discover that our data is not up to date, you have the right to request its amendment. 

3. Objections

If you believe that your personal data was not processed in accordance with legislature valid in the Czech Republic and European Union, you have the right to object to its processing and we will subsequently verify the legitimacy of your claim. We are hereby informing you that you hold the right to also object the processing of your personal data by contacting the relevant Supervisory Authority for the Protection of Personal Data at:

The Office for Personal Data Protection:

Pplk. Sochora 27

170 00 Prague 7

4. Right of erasure

If you have given consent at any time for us to process your personal data, you also have the right to withdraw your consent at any time and the data, which we process solely on the basis of your consent, will be erased. The right of erasure does not apply to data processed within in terms of the obligation to perform the contract, legal reasons or legitimate interests. If some of your data is stored in backup systems that automate the resilience of all our systems and fulfil the data loss protection function in the event of a disaster, we are not in a position to erase the data from the backup systems as it is often not technically feasible. Nevertheless, this data will not be processed further in any way and will not serve to fulfil other processing purposes.

5. Right to limit processing

This is the right to object the processing of your personal data in the event that you discover, or you believe that your personal data has been processed in contradiction with the valid legislature or that the processing could threaten your rights and freedoms. The following are cases where this occurs:

Amendment right – you deny the accuracy of your personal information. While we are verifying the accuracy and exactness of your personal information as data administrators, you have the right to request that we limit the use of this inaccurate data.

The processing of your personal data is unlawful, but you are not requesting that the data be erased, but rather that this data is only limited.

We, as the administrator of personal data, no longer need personal data for processing (and we should erase this data), but you are requesting it for the purpose of determining, enforcing or defending legal claims.

You object to the processing of your personal data. It is necessary to limit the processing of such data while we are verifying whether our interests as the administrator or your interests as the data subject prevail.

6. Right to the portability of your personal data

1. You, as the data subject, have the right to receive personal data that refers to you, and data that you have provided to the administrator, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, and you have the right to transfer this information to another administrator without preventing the administrator to whom the personal information was provided, in the event that:

processing is established in accordance with Art. 6, Para. 1, Let. a) or Art. 9, Para. 2, Let. a) or in the contract under Art. 6, Para. 1, Let. b); and

processing performed automatically.

2. In exercising your right to data portability under paragraph 1, you, as a data subject, have the right to have personal data transferred directly by one administrator to another administrator, if technically feasible.

3. Exercising the right referred to in paragraph 1 of this Article shall be without prejudice to Article 17. This right does not apply to processing, which is necessary for fulfilling a purpose performed in public interest or during the performance of public interest of which is commissioned by the administrator.

4. The right referred to in paragraph 1 shall not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other individuals

7. Right to not participate in automated decision-making

As a data subject, this right ensures that you will not be the subject of decision-making established solely on automated processing, including profiling, which carries legal effects for you or is significantly relevant to you in an analogous manner. In other words, this right is ensuring that legal effects are not decided by automated procedures without human interference, except for possible exceptions.

Automated decision making is permissible when it is necessary for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract between you and the administrator if permitted by EU law or a Member State or based on your explicit consent.
