Where we are considered as data processor in relation to data provided by you and for which the data controller is the legal entity who has authorised each user to use the META-INF App, you may find the rules on our obligations and commitments in the following document:
- After the general definitions contained in the first part of our DPA, it sets out the purpose of the DPA and the general provisions on data processing. In Chapters 4, 5 and 10, you will find the rights (instruction, access, inspection) that you have as a data controller in relation to our company as the data processor. Based on these rights as a data controller, you have the right to review our processing activities, and you may also have certain limited rights of instruction, which you can exercise in writing. Chapter 6 sets out the detailed rules on what obligations our Company as a data processor has towards you as a data controller and what rights we have in relation to the processing.
- We undertake not to transfer, duplicate or disclose your personal data for any other purpose than the fulfillment of our obligation and to not transfer or disclose them to any third party or public authority without your prior written consent. Chapter7 of the DPA sets out our confidentiality commitments, while Chapter 8 explains the technical and organisational measures we have taken to protect the security of your data.
- In Chapter 11 you can find our commitment that we will only use sub-processors with your prior written consent and with whom we have entered into a contract containing at least the same obligations as those we have entered and also that with our existing sub-processors we have such agreement as the data processing agreement we use in the relationship with you. Chapter 12 of the sub-processor agreement sets out how the data will be deleted in the event of termination of the contract and the time limit for deletion, while Chapters 13 and 14 contain the final provisions, in particular, governing law and jurisdiction
- The legal ground for our processing of data is divided into two distinct categories. In the first case, we process the data of individual data subjects for some reason (performance of a contract, our legitimate interest, compliance with our legal obligations), the processing of which is not based on the data subject’s consent. The other case is where we process individual data solely on the basis of the data subject's consent.
- We process your data on the basis of consent if you subscribe to our newsletter in any way (Section IV.1.3) or apply for one of our vacant positions (Section IV.1.5). We will also process your data on the basis of your consent if you submit an application for granting support to a non-profit organisation (Section IV.1.7). Last but not least, we may also send you any communication on the basis of your consent only if you request educational or marketing materials from us (Section IV.1.9.), or if you attend (Sections IV.3.3.1., IV.3.3.3.) to one of our events or give a presentation there as a speaker (Section IV.3.3.2.).
- In cases not covered by the above paragraph, where we may process your data, it is partly justified by the legitimate interest of our Company or because without processing certain data for a shorter period of time, we would not be able to fulfil our obligations under the contract.
- To ensure our legitimate interest, we process your IP address when you browse our website (Section IV.1.1) or use the login interface of one of our cloud applications. On the same legal ground we also process the fact and date of reading our e-mail messages or if you have requested an offer from us (Section IV.1.2) or if you have subscribed to our newsletter at our events (Section IV.1.3.1). We process your data ont he grounds of our legitimate interests if you have downloaded our products (Section IV.1.3.2.) and as a result we send you useful information about our products, or if we have to sned you an invoice (Sections IV.1.4.1. and IV.1.4.2.). To protect our legitimate interests, we process your data in the event that we successfully complete the application process for our open positions (Section IV.1.5.). Finally, if a contractual relationship has been established between us, we will also process your data for the purposes of maintaining the contractual relationship based on our legitimate interests (Section IV.1.6.).
- Data processing where the legal ground is the performance of a contract, happens following a request for offer (Section IV.1.2.), in the course of our customer service activities (Section IV.I.8.), when sending of educational material (Section IV.1.9.), in connection with license sales (Section IV.2.2.). Contractual processing is also carried out when we carry out consultancy or other support activities not related to the programmes developped by us (Section IV.3.1.). We process data for and on the basis of the performance of a contract between our company and an individual user also when you attend one of our events (Section IV.3.3.1.).
- Finally, a specific form of our data processing is when we are legally obliged to do so. This currently arises in connection with our contractual partners when we have to issue an invoice to you as an individual (Section IV.1.4.2.). The scope of the data processed in such cases and the duration of our processing are set out in Section IV.1.4.
- Chapter 6 explains how you can withdraw your consent in cases when processing of data is based on your consent.
- In Chapter 7, you can find information on how and where we store the personal data you provide to us and the security measures we take to protect your data.
- Chapter 10 of the Privacy Notice describes which social networking plug-ins we use and where to find the privacy policies of these third-party service providers.
- In Chapter 11, we provide information about cases when it is our legal obligations to disclose data.
