3. Principles relating to processing of personal data

The processing of personal data is based on strict principles that view the protection and security of the data and the rights of the data subjects as the highest assets.

Lawfulness & transparency

Data processing takes place in a lawfully manner in good faith. The data subject will be informed about the planned processing and handling of the data at the point of data acquisition. Thus, data subjects are informed about the following points at least:

  • Purpose of the data processing
  • Legal basis of processing

Purpose limitation

The data is collected and processed for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes. The processing of the data does not occur in a manner incompatible with these purposes.

Data minimization

Only those data are collected and processed which are absolutely necessary for the stated purposes. If it is possible to achieve the purpose and the effort is reasonable, only anonymous data will be processed.

Storage limitation and erasure

Personal data are deleted as soon as the purpose, for which they were originally collected, is no longer given and legal retention periods do not prevent their erasure. If in individual cases, there are legitimate interests in these data, they will be stored until the protection-worthy interests has been legally clarified.

Data security

All personal data are subject to data secrecy. The data are to be handled confidentially and are protected by appropriate organizational and technical measures against unauthorized access, unlawful manipulation or transfer as well as loss and destruction.

For this purpose, technical and organizational security measures according to the state of the art and internationally recognized best practices as well as security standards are established and continuously improved.

6. Data Protection Committee

GIS Aqua is not in the need to appoint a data protection officer as Article 37 (1) of the EU GDPR is not applicable.
