I. Induction

  1. General regulation for the protection of personal data

Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council repealed the Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation). This has a direct impact and implies a change in the legislation of the member states in the field of personal data protection. The purpose of the regulation is to protect the ‘rights and freedoms’ of natural persons and to ensure that personal data is not processed without their knowledge and, where possible, that it is processed with their consent.

  1. Scope outlined by the General Data Protection Regulation

Material scope – This Regulation applies to the processing of personal data wholly or partly by automated means and to the processing other than by automated means of personal data which form part of a filing system or are intended to form part of a filing system.

Territorial scope – rules of the General Regulation will apply to all data controllers established in the EU who process personal data of natural persons in the context of their activity. It will also apply to non-EU controllers who process personal data for the purpose of offering goods and services or if they monitor the behavior of data subjects who reside in the EU.

  1. Definitions

‘Personal Data’ – any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person;

‘Processing’ – any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction;

‘Restriction of Processing’ – the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future;

‘Profiling’ – any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular, to analyze or predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location or movements;

‘Pseudonymisation’ – the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person;

‘Filing System’ – any structured set of personal data that are accessible according to specific criteria, whether centralized, decentralized, or dispersed on a functional or geographical basis;

‘Controller’ – the natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law;

‘Processor’ – a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the controller;

‘Recipient’ – a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or another body, to which the personal data is disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities that may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients; the processing of those data by those public authorities shall comply with the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the processing;

‘Third Party’– a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or body other than the data subject, controller, processor, and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorized to process personal data;

The definitions for each of the above are given in Art. 4 of GDPR.

IV. Data Protection Principles

All processing of personal data is carried out in accordance with the data protection principles set out in Article 5 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679. Accedia JSC policies and procedures aim to ensure compliance with these principles.

  1. Personal data will be processed lawfully, fairly, and in a transparent manner

Lawfully – the controller will identify a lawful basis before personal data is processed. This is often referred to as “grounds for processing”, for example, “consent”.

Fairly – for the processing to be carried out fairly, the data controller will provide certain information to the data subjects as far as is practically possible. This applies regardless of whether the personal data is obtained directly from the data subjects or other sources.

In a transparent manner – the controller will follow the rules regarding the provision of confidential information to data subjects in articles 12, 13, and 14 of the GDPR. They are detailed and specific, emphasizing that privacy notices are understandable and accessible. The information will be communicated to the data subject in an understandable form, using clear and understandable language.

The rules for notifying the data subject are defined in the Procedure for data processing transparency.

The specific information that will be provided to the data subject includes at least:

  • data that identifies the controller and the contact details of the controller and, if any, that of the controller’s representative;
  • DPO contacts;
  • the purpose of the processing for which the personal data is intended as well as the legal basis for the processing;
  • the period for which the personal data will be stored;
  • the existence of the following rights – to request access to the data, amendment, deletion (right to be forgotten), limitation of processing, as well as the right to object to the conditions (or lack thereof) in relation to the practice of these rights;
  • personal data categories;
  • the recipients or categories of recipients of personal data, where this is applicable;
  • whether the controller intends to transfer the personal data to a recipient in a third country and the level of data protection (where applicable);
  • any additional information necessary to ensure fair processing.
  1. Personal data is collected only for specific, defined, and lawful purposes

The data obtained for specific purposes must not be used for a purpose that differs from those officially announced to the supervisory authority as part of the Register of Data Processing Activities (Art. 30 GDPR) of Accedia JSC. A procedure for transparency in the processing of personal data determines the rules.

  1. Personal data must be adequate, relevant, and limited to what is necessary for the processing of the data and to what is necessary for the relevant purpose. (minimum necessary principle)
  • DPO is responsible for ensuring that Accedia JSC does not collect information that is not strictly needed for the purpose for which it was obtained.
  • DPO ensures that all data collection methods are reviewed by (internal audit/external experts) on an (annual) basis to ensure that the data collected continues to be adequate, relevant, and not excessive.
  1. Personal data must be accurate and up to date at all times, and measures are taken to enable immediate (within the possible technical solutions) deletion or correction
  • The data held by the data controller must be reviewed and updated when necessary. Data that is likely to not be accurate should not be stored.
  • DPO is responsible for ensuring that all staff are trained in the importance of collecting and maintaining accurate data.
  • It is also the duty of the data subject to declare that the transmitted data for storage by Accedia JSC is accurate and up to date. Completion of a form by the data subject intended for the controller will include a statement that the data contained therein is accurate as of the date of submission.
  • Employees (customers/others) should be required to notify Accedia JSC of any changes in circumstances so that personal data records can be updated. Accedia JSC has the responsibility to ensure that any notification regarding a change in circumstances is recorded and action is taken.
  • DPO is responsible for ensuring that appropriate procedures and policies are in place to maintain the accuracy of the personal data, considering the volume of data collected, the rate at which this volume may change, and other relevant factors.
  • The DPO will review the retention periods of all personal data processed by Accedia JSC at least on an annual basis, referring to the data inventory, and identify any data that is no longer required in the context of the registered purpose. This data will be securely destroyed in accordance with the controller’s procedures and policies.
  • The DPO is responsible for complying with data correction requests within one month (Procedure for the Management of Subject Requests). This deadline can be extended by another two months for complex requests. If Accedia JSC decides not to comply with the request, the DPO must respond to the data subject to explain the reason for refusal and inform the data subject of his right to submit a complaint with the supervisory authority and seek legal protection.
  • The DPO is responsible for taking appropriate measures to inform third-party organizations in cases where they have inaccurate or out-of-date personal data, that the information is inaccurate or out-of-date and it is not to be used to make decisions about people ( also inform the relevant parties); and forward any amendments of personal data to the third parties where necessary.
  1. Personal data must be stored in such a form that the data subject can be identified only for as long as is necessary for the processing
  • Where personal data is retained after the date of processing, it will be stored in an appropriate manner (minimized, encrypted, pseudonymized) to protect the identity of the data subject in the event of a data breach.
  • Personal data will be kept in accordance with the Data Retention and Destruction Procedure. After the retention period has ended, then the personal data must be reliably destroyed as noted in the procedure.
  1. Personal data must be processed in a way that guarantees adequate security (Art. 24, Art. 32 of GDPR)

The DPO will carry out a risk assessment, taking into account all the circumstances related to the data management or processing operations of Accedia JSC.

When determining how appropriate this processing is, the DPO will also consider the extent of potential harm or loss that may be caused to natural persons (e.g. staff or customers) if a security breach occurs, as well as any likely reputational damage to the controller, including a possible loss of customer confidence.

DPO will consider the following when assessing appropriate technical measures:

  • Password security;
  • Automatic locking of idle workstations in the network;
  • Remove access rights for USB and other portable storage media;
  • Antivirus software and firewalls;
  • Role-based access rights, including temporary assigned staff;

  • The levels of appropriate training in Accedia JSC;
  • The measures that take into account the reliability of employees (for example, attestation evaluations, recommendations, etc.);
  • Data protection inclusion in employment contracts;
  • Identification of disciplinary measures when there is a data processing violation;

These controls are defined considering the identified risks to personal data, as well as the potential for harm to the natural persons whose data is being processed. 

  1. Compliance with the accountability principle

Regulation (EU) 2016/679 includes provisions that promote accountability, governance and complete the transparency requirements. According to the Principle of Accountability, Art. 5, par. 2 the controller declares that he can prove that he complies with the other principles in the GDPR and expressly states that this is his responsibility.

Accedia JSC will demonstrate compliance with data protection principles by applying data protection policies, implementing appropriate technical and organizational measures, as well as adopting data protection techniques at the design stage and data protection by default, assessment and data protection risk management, personal data breach notification procedure and all other necessary records, according to GDPR.

V. Data Subject Rights

  1. Accedia JSC provides resources to guarantee the execution of these rights by the data subject:
  • Data subjects may make data access requests as described in the Procedure for Managing Requests from Subjects; this procedure also describes how Accedia JSC will ensure that the response to the data subject’s request meets GDPR requirements.
  • Data subjects have the right to submit complaints to Accedia JSC, related to the processing of their personal data, the processing of a request from the data subject, or an appeal by the data subject, related to the manner of processing complaints in accordance with the Procedure for the Ways of communication on complaints and requests from the data subject.

VI. Consent

  1. Accedia JSC will treat as “consent” any freely expressed, specific, informed, and unambiguous indication of the will of the data subject, by means of a statement or a clear confirming action, which expresses their consent to the personal data related to them being processed.

  2. Accedia JSC treats as “consent” only the cases in which the data subject has been fully informed about the planned processing and has expressed their consent without any pressure being exerted on them. Consent obtained with any form of pressure or based on misleading information will not be a valid basis for processing personal data.
  3. Written consent must be obtained through the Procedure for obtaining consent for the processing of personal data of data subjects for special categories of data unless there is an alternative lawful basis for processing.
  4. In most cases, consent for the processing of personal and special categories of data is obtained by Accedia JSC using standard consent documents.
  5. When Accedia JSC processes the personal data of children, permission must be obtained from those exercising parental rights (parents, guardians, etc.). This requirement applies to children under the age of 16 (unless the Member State has a lower age limit, which cannot be lower than 13 years).

VII. Data Security

  1. All employees are responsible for ensuring the security of the storage of the data for which they are responsible and which Accedia JSC holds. Employees are also responsible for the data being stored securely and not disclosed under any circumstances to third parties unless Accedia JSC has granted such rights to these third parties by entering into a confidentiality agreement/clause.
  2. All personal data will be accessible only to those who need it, and access can only be granted in accordance with established access control rules. All personal data will be treated with utmost security and stored:

It is important to consider whether the disclosure of the information is related or not to the needs of the activity carried out by the organization.

Employees are provided with special training and periodic briefings to avoid the risk of such violations.

  1. Any third-party requests to provide data must be supported by appropriate documentation. The DPO must specifically authorize such data disclosures.

(EEA), which is broader in scope than the EU, and also includes non-EU countries (Liechtenstein, Norway and Iceland). However, these countries apply EU regulations through a decision of the Joint Committee, as in the case of the Common Regulation.

  1. Adequacy decision

The European Commission may assess third countries, territories, and/or specific sectors in third countries in order to assess whether there is an adequate level of protection of the rights and freedoms of natural persons. In these cases, no permission is required.

Countries that are members of the European Economic Area (EEA), but not the EU, are accepted as eligible for an adequacy decision (Art. 45 par. 8).

  1. EU-U.S. Privacy Shield

If Accedia JSC wants to transfer personal data from the EU to a third party in the USA, Accedia must check whether the other company has signed the “Privacy Shield” Framework Agreement with the US Department of Commerce.  

The US Department of Commerce is responsible for managing and administering the Privacy Shield and ensuring that companies meet their commitments. In order to be certified by the Ministry, the companies must have a policy for protection of the personal data in accordance with the principles of the GDPR, e.g. use, store, and transfer personal data in accordance with a set of strict data protection rules and precautions.

  1. Standard Contractual Clauses

Accedia JSC may adopt the approved by the European Commission standard contractual clauses for data protection when transferring data outside the European Economic Area. If Accedia JSC accepts the standard contractual clauses approved by the relevant supervisory authority, there is automatic recognition of adequacy. 

  1. Exceptions

In the absence of an adequacy decision, US Privacy Shield membership, mandatory company rules, and/or contractual clauses, the transfer of personal data to a third country or international organization will only take place under one of the following conditions:

  • the data subject has consented to the transfer after being informed of the possible risks of such transfers;
  • the transmission is necessary for the execution of a contract between the data subject and the controller or for the execution of pre-contractual measures taken by request of the data subject;
  • the transmission is necessary for the signing or execution of a contract signed between the controller and another natural person or legal entity in the interest of the data subject;
  • the transmission is necessary for important reasons of public interest;
  • the transmission is necessary for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims;
  • the transfer is necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or other natural persons, where the data subject is physically or legally unable to give consent;
  • the transfer is made from a register which, under EU law or the law of the Member States, is intended to provide information to the public and is available in general for reference by the public or by any person who can demonstrate that they have a legitimate interest in doing so, but only to the extent that the reference conditions laid down in Union law or the law of the Member States are fulfilled in the particular case.

XI. Register of Data Processing (Data Inventory)

  1. Accedia JSC has created a data inventory process as part of its approach to address the risks and opportunities in the process of complying with the policy for compliance with Regulation (EU) 2016/679.
