These subcontracted entities may not transmit the the holder’s to other entities without Algardata having given, in advance and in writing, authorization to do so, and are also prevented from contracting other entities without the prior authorization of Algardata.

All entities subcontracted by Algardata are bound to the latter by a written contract in which the object and duration of the processing, the nature and purpose of the processing, the type of personal data, the categories of data subjects and the rights and obligations of the parties are regulated.

At the time of the collection of personal data, Algardata provides the data subject with information about the categories of subcontracted entities that, in the present case, may process data on behalf of Algardata.

DATA COLLECTION CHANNELS

Algardata may collect data directly (i.e., directly from the holder) or indirectly (i.e., through partner entities or third parties). Collection can be done through the following channels:

Direct collection: in person, by phone, or by e-mail;

Indirect collection: through Algardata’s partners or companies and official entities.

GENERAL PRINCIPLES APPLICABLE TO THE PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA

In terms of general principles regarding the processing of personal data, Algardata undertakes to ensure that the personal data processed by the company is:

  • Subject of a lawful, loyal and transparent treatment in relation to the data subject;
  • Collected for specific, explicit, and legitimate purposes and subsequently not treated in a manner incompatible with those purposes;
  • Appropriate, relevant, and limited to what is necessary for relation to the purposes for which they are processed;
  • Accurate and up-to-date whenever necessary, and all appropriate measures are taken so that the inaccurate data, taking into account the purposes for which they are processed, are erased or rectified without delay;
  • Kept in a way that allows the identification of the data subject only for the period necessary for the purposes for which the data is processed;

Treated in a way that guarantees the data subject’s safety, including protection against your unauthorized or unlawful treatment and against accidental loss, destruction or damage, and appropriate technical or organizational measures are adopted.

The processing of data carried out by Algardata is lawful when at least one of the following occurs:

  • The data subject has given his explicit consent to the processing of the data subject’s data for one or more specific purposes;
  • The processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, or for pre-contractual due diligence at the request of the data subject;
  • The processing is necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation to which Algardata is subject;
  • The processing is necessary for the defense of the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person;

Algardata undertakes to ensure that the processing of the data of the holder is only done under the conditions listed above and with respect to the above-mentioned principles.

Where the processing of the data of the holder is carried out by Algardata on the basis of the consent of the data subject, the data subject has the right to withdraw his consent at any time. The withdrawal of consent, however, does not compromise the lawfulness of the processing carried out by Algardata on the basis of the consent previously given by the data subject.

The length of time during which the data is stored varies according to the purpose for which the information is processed.

In fact, there are legal requirements that require you to retain the data for a minimum period of time. Thus, and where there is no specific legal requirement, the data will be stored only for the minimum period necessary for the purposes that motivated its collection or subsequent processing, after which they will be deleted.

USE AND PURPOSES OF THE PROCESSING OF THE HOLDER’S DATA

In general terms, Algardata uses the data of the data subject for various purposes, namely the billing and collection to the holder of the personal data, for marketing purposes, and for the management of human resources and recruitment of employees.

The data of the data subjec collected by Algardata is not shared with third parties without the holder’s consent, except for the situations referred to in the following paragraph. However, in the event that the holder hires Algardata’s services that are provided by other entities responsible for the processing of personal data, the data of the holder may be consulted or accessed by those entities, to the extent that this is necessary for the provision of such services.

Under the applicable legal terms, Algardata may transmit or communicate the data of the data subject to other entities in the event that such transmission or communication is necessary for the performance of the contract established between the holder and Algardata, or for pre-contractual due diligence at the request of the data subject, in the event that it is necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation to which Algardata is subject or if it is necessary for the purpose of pursuing the legitimate interests of Algardata or third party. In the event of a transmission of data from the holder to third parties, reasonable efforts will be made for the transferee to use the data of the data holder transmitted in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

TECHNICAL, ORGANIZATIONAL AND SAFETY MEASURES IMPLEMENTED

To ensure the security of the data holder and maximum confidentiality, Algardata treats the information you have provided to us in an absolutely confidential manner, in accordance with its internal security and confidentiality policies and procedures, which are updated periodically according to the needs, as well as in accordance with the terms and conditions legally provided.

Depending on the nature, scope, context, and purposes of the processing of the data, as well as the risks arising from the processing of the rights and freedoms of the holder, Algardata undertakes to apply, both at the time of definition of the means of processing and at the time of the processing itself, the technical and organizational measures necessary and appropriate to the protection of the data of the data subject and compliance with legal requirements.

It also undertakes to ensure that, by default, only the data that is necessary for each specific purpose of the processing is processed and that such data is not made available without human intervention to an indeterminate number of individuals.

In terms of general measures, Algardata adopts the following:

  • Regular audits to assess the effectiveness of the technical and organizational measures implemented;
  • Awareness-raising and training of staff involved in data processing operations;
