Purposes of Processing & the Legal Bases of Data Processing

The processing of personal data is based on one of the “legal bases” as referred to in Article 6 of the Regulation or Article 9 in case of special categories of personal data.

The legal bases on which the collection and processing of personal data is based (in most of the cases) are, the consent, the compliance in performing our contractual obligations, the compliance with our legal and statutory obligations, and the safeguarding our legitimate interests. For special categories of personal data, the explicit consent, the performance of obligations and the exercise of specific rights of the controller or data subject in the field of labour law and social security / social protection law and for the assessment of the working capacity of the employee, medical diagnosis, the provision of health or social care or treatment. The legal basis, on which the processing of your personal data is based, is as follows for each processing purpose:

Consent: when you communicate with us in any way directly or indirectly as interested in our services, when you are interested in working with us, when we inform you after you have express your interest to inform you about our services, when you make a complaint or statement or when assessing us, when participating in our events, when you visit our webpage or social media accounts, when you give us your business card.

Commitment to perform our contractual obligations: when you have agreed to receive our services, when you are our employee or collaborator, during the payment of our liabilities or when we are contacting you for another legal purpose in the framework of a contract.

Compliance with our legal obligations: to comply with our legal obligations to all sorts of authorities, such as, labour law, regulatory authorities, tax, accounting, auditing, judicial authorities and agencies, or in connection with our contractual obligations or during the payment of our liabilities.

Safeguarding our legitimate interests: when investigating and managing any potential incident, to receive our payment, or for the assessment of persons and situations, when you enter our premises where a legal video surveillance (CCTV) system is operating for the purpose of the security of people and the property. 

Our employees are informed about the processing purposes and the legal bases under specific documents internally.

Retention of Data Period

We store personal data for as long as it is required by the respective processing purpose and any other permitted linked purpose.

Data collected on the basis of contractual and legal obligations, shall be retained after the expiry of the contractual and legal obligations, as provided by the relevant institutional framework. For example, we retain payment data for seven years according the national legal framework.

Personal Data included in offers that does not lead to a cooperation agreement is kept for 24 months.

Cookies are stored depending on their nature as you may be informed in our cookies policy.

Personal data you disclose to us as candidates are stored for 12 months unless you withdraw your consent earlier.

Data that may be needed for our legitimate interests as a Controller shall be kept until the reason for storing such data ceases. Specifically, data from our CCTV System is retained for 15 days.

Specifically, the data we process based on your consent, is kept from obtaining the consent and until it is revoked, or there is no longer need to store it.

Information that is no longer necessary is safely destroyed or anonymised. We limit access to your personal data to those employees who need to use it for the specific purpose.

How we ensure the security of Personal Data

We have received relevant organisational and technical measures to protect the personal data we collect, and in particular any specific categories of personal data. We follow international standards and practices to ensure the security of information and the security of our networks. We ensure you that your personal data is processed securely and legally, by adhering to policies and developing and implementing procedures in accordance with the purposes and legal bases of processing. For example, the following security measures are used to protect personal data against unauthorised use or any other form of unauthorised processing:

  • Access to personal data is restricted to a limited number of authorised employees under a need-to-know basis, and the necessary data transfer is done by secure procedures.
  • Our employees are bound by confidentiality clauses and agreements, with limited classified access to the necessary data only.
  • We select trusted collaborators who are bound in writing, in accordance with Article 28 of the Regulation, with the same obligations regarding the protection of personal data. We reserve the right to audit them in accordance with Article 28 (3) (h).
  • In our ICT systems used for the processing of personal data, all available technical measures are taken to the possible extend to prevent loss, unauthorised access or other illegal processing. In addition, access to these ICT systems is monitored on a permanent basis in order to detect and prevent illegal use at an early stage. Although the transfer of data through the Internet or a web site cannot be guaranteed to be protected from cyber-attacks, we work to maintain physical, electronic and procedural security measures to protect your data.

Some of the security measures we take are not announced for obvious reasons.

To whom the Data may be disclosed

We take measures to ensure that the recipients of personal data are kept to a minimum.
