5. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

The legal basis for the above-mentioned purposes of the processing are as follows:

  • performing a contract entered into with you, e.g. a contract of mandate and/or employment contract and/or taking actions at your request that precede signing of a contract;- representing LIMAX’s or a third party’s legitimate interests;
  • complying with legal obligations, such as the administrative obligation and the retention obligation;
  • your (explicit and specific) consent;

6. Explanation of legitimate interests

The above-mentioned legitimate interests may include the following:

  • the purpose of direct marketing;
  • the purpose related to quality and training;
  • improving the quality of our products and services;
  • scientific research.

You may object to the processing of your personal data. To this end, you have the right to object to the processing. You may withdraw your consent at any time.

7. Mandatory provision of personal data

If we request your personal data, we will always indicate whether the provision of the data is necessary or mandatory and what the possible consequences of not providing the data are. As always, the basic principle is that LIMAX will not process more personal data than necessary for the purposes described above. We will not transfer your data to third parties unless we are obliged by legal and regulatory requirements to provide certain data, e.g. to the police in the course of their investigations. 

8. Transfer abroad

Your personal data may be processed in the countries of the European Economic Area (EEA). We do not process your personal data outside of the EEA.

9. Retention period

LIMAX retains your personal data in accordance with legal and regulatory requirements, and not longer than necessary for the purposes specified above, unless such data are necessary to comply with statutory data retention obligations for certain retention periods.

10. Security of your personal data

LIMAX will take appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect personal data from loss or any unlawful form of processing. To this end, various measures (including data encryption, communication encryption and confidential treatment of data) have been taken. The third parties engaged by LIMAX that process personal data need to take the same technical and organisational measures to protect personal data from loss or any unlawful form of processing. LIMAX has included provisions regarding this mater in personal data processing contracts.

11. Your rights

According to the General Data Protection Regulation, various rights are available to you.
The rights are listed below: 

  1. Right of accessYou have the right to access your data that are available to LIMAX.
  2. Right to rectification and data erasureYou have the right to modify your data. You also have the right to erase your data unless there are reasonable grounds to believe that their further storage may be essential to a party other than you, and also if a statutory provision precludes their erasure.
  3. Right to object
    The right to object means that, based on your particular circumstances, you may object to the specific processing of your personal data. This right is vested in you in respect of any processing that is not based on your consent, fulfilment of LIMAX’s legal obligations or protection of your or other people’s vital interests. 
  4. Right to restriction of processing
    In certain circumstances, you may also have the right to restriction of processing of your data. In short, this means that LIMAX “temporarily” suspends the processing of your data. You can use this right in the following four situations:
    • pending the evaluation of a request for rectification;
    • if the data should, in fact, be deleted when you do not want them to be deleted;
    • if LIMAX no longer needs the data, whereas you need them to prepare a court case;
    • pending the evaluation of an appeal.
  5. Right to data portability
    You have the right to receive the data provided to LIMAX in a commonly accepted file format. This right applies only to personal data that we process based on your consent or a contract signed with you. Furthermore, this is applicable only to the data processed in a digital form (i.e. not in a paper form). Successively, you are free to transfer the data to another person. 
  6. Consent withdrawal
    In respect of the data described above, we apply the principle that we process them based on your consent. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. In this case, we will stop the processing as soon as possible. Withdrawal of your consent has no retroactive effect. Any processing that has already taken place is lawful. 

12. Response time

In principle, we will deal with your questions/requests within four weeks. If a response to a question/request takes longer, we will inform you within four weeks. 

13. Amendments

The personal data that we process or the applicable legal provisions may change. If this happens, we may amend this privacy statement. In the case of major changes, we will publish a relevant notice on our website and inform you by email.
