Terms arising from regulations for the protection of personal data

Principles of personal data protection

When processing personal data, we are guided by the following principles for the protection of personal data:

  • To be processed fairly and in accordance with the law

Usually, the fair processing of personal data implies compliance with the “principle of necessity” – data processing to the extent necessary to achieve a specific goal. The processing of personal data in accordance with the law implies the existence of a legal basis and respect for any legal restrictions arising from other laws. Data processed based on law can be used for:

  • conclusion, supervision, and termination of a contract
  • concluding an employment or internship contract
  • entering into a contract for a deed
  • delivery of ordered products / services
  • notifications about new products / services
  • notifications about reductions (discounts) of already existing products / services
  • unpaid debt notices
  • applying for financing
  • collection of products / services
  • notification of the remaining number of installments.
  • To be collected for specific, clear, and legally established purposes and to be processed in a manner consistent with those purposes. The use of products and services is not conditioned by the user’s consent to use his data for other purposes, except for fulfilling the rights and obligations arising from the concluded agreement.
  • To be relevant, appropriate, and not more than the purpose to be achieved by their processing (data economy). The “Principle of Necessity” limits the amount of data that can be processed, only to those that are necessary for fulfillment of the purposes for which they are processed. For example, regardless of the type of business relationship established, the processing of data on the nationality of the user would be irrelevant, inappropriate, and excessive.
  • To be accurate, complete and where necessary updated, whereby all appropriate measures will be taken to delete or correct the data, taking into account the purposes for which they were collected or processed (data quality).

This principle refers to the quality of the data, according to which EAST GATE MALL as the controller of personal data takes care of their accuracy. Updating data means replacing data that was once correct with new data or supplementing it. At the same time, the user has the right to request that actions be taken to delete or correct his data.

  • To be kept in a form that allows identification of the user, no longer than the time necessary to fulfill the purpose for which the data was collected.

This principle limits the period in which personal data can be legally processed, whereby after the end of the purpose for which they were collected, they should be deleted or destroyed, i.e. anonymized.

Upon termination of the contractual relationship, these data must be kept for a period of 1 (one) year from the date of issuance of the last invoice for the provided services.

It is considered to have been acted in accordance with the principle of erasure of data in the event that the identification characteristics of the users are deleted (anonymization) or the identification characteristics are replaced with other characteristics (pseudonymization). Anonymization and pseudonymization are carried out in such a way that the identity of the user cannot be revealed or can only be revealed with unreasonable effort.
