PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT

Personal data is data that identifies and relates to someone as an individual.

DSP, in its capacity as Data Controller, processes personal data as follows:

Personal data received from our contact forms:

When we have received a message / inquiry from a person through the contact form on the Site or through any of the social networks supported by DSP, we will use the name, email and other contact details provided by him / her (if provided in his / her message) to contact and provide him / her with the information and / or assistance that the person needs.

Personal data received through the contact form on the Site or through any of the social networks maintained by DSP will be stored for up to 6 (six) months from receipt of the message / inquiry.

We will not use your contacts to advertise third party products and / or services.

METHOD OF COLLECTION

We process solely the data which you have voluntarily granted to us.  This means that it is your responsibility not to provide third party data in violation of third party’ rights to personal data protection, as we have no practical ability to control whether you provide us with third party data with their knowledge and consent in accordance with the legal requirements.

Therefore, each person bears full personal responsibility if he / she provides us with third party data without their knowledge or without their consent in compliance with the requirements of the applicable data protection legislation.

SECURITY MEASURES

SUB-PROCESSORS

For providing quality services DSP may engage third party service providers – Sub-processors, carefully selected according to their capacity for personal data protection and processing in compliance with our obligations under the GDPR. Without them, the implementation of the assistance requested by you will not be possible.  We use only sub-processors – professionals in the field, through which we provide additional security for your data and to whom we provide solely the information needed to perform their assigned activities.  Such sub-processors are our IT and other software and hardware service providers.

In the cases required by law, your personal data may be provided to the competent state authorities and institutions.

We do not provide your personal data to third parties without legal or contractual grounds, nor do we sell or distribute it in any other way.

INFORMATION WE SHARE

  2. For making some services possible – to third party sub-processors, as described above;
