Are you not familiar with GDPR?
We have an explanation of terms, related topics and the extent of your rights.
What is personal data?
Personal data means any information which can be used to identify a natural person (or a data subject). Personal data include name, identification number, location data, online identifiers, and also factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of the natural person.
What does the processing of personal data mean?
Processing means any operation which is performed on personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, adaptation, alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination, alignment, combination, erasure or destruction. The purpose of the processing will be based on legal bases:
- Legal obligation of the controller
- Performance or conclusion of a contract with a data subject (i.e. with a natural person)
- Data subject's consent
- Protection of the vital interests of a data subject
- Public interest or the exercise of public authority
- Legitimate interest of the controller
What are the data subject’s rights?
The General Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council (EU) 2016/679, on the protection of personal data (known as GDPR), which came into force on 25 May 2018, expands the existing set of rights of data subjects. These rights include:
The data subject's right of access to personal data, and information about whether or not and which personal data are processed by UWB
You have the right to ask UWB whether or not and which personal data concerning your person are being processed. Where this is the case, you have the right of access to your personal data.
The right to rectification of inaccurate data
If you find out that some of your personal data processed by UWB are inaccurate, you have the right to ask UWB for their rectification, or for the completion of incomplete personal data by means of a supplementary statement.
The right to erasure of personal data
You have the right to ask UWB to erase your personal data if:
- the personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed;
- you withdraw the consent on which the processing is based;
- there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing;
- your personal data have been unlawfully processed;
- you object to the processing of your personal data and UWB does not demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for their processing.
However, it is necessary to remember that UWB is not obliged to erase your personal data if their processing is necessary:
- for compliance with legal obligations which require processing;
- for archiving, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes if the erasure of data is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of the objectives of that processing;
- for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information;
- for the exercise and defence of UWB legal claims.
Right to the restriction of processing
You have the right to the restriction of processing of your personal data (with the exception of storage) if:
- you contest the accuracy of your personal data;
- the processing of your personal data is unlawful and you oppose the erasure of the personal data and request the restriction of their use instead;
- UWB no longer needs your personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you require them for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims;
- you object the processing. In that case, UWB will no longer process your personal data unless UWB demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests.
Right to data portability
You have the right to receive the personal data which you have provided to UWB. You also have the right to transmit these data to another controller if UWB processes these data based on your consent, or if the transfer is necessary for the performance of a contract.
The right to object
If you believe that UWB does not process your personal data lawfully, you have the right to address UWB and object to the processing.
