Information sheet about personal data protection and processing
In this document, we provide you information about your rights relating to personal data processing in the FINEP Group. While processing personal data, we comply with the legislation, in particular with the GDPR and Act on Personal Data Protection. Personal data processing always takes place in the scope of the given specific service or purpose of processing.
This document will be regularly updated.
We handle personal data with all due care and in compliance with the valid legislation. We provide the maximum possible level of protection for personal data using state-of-the-art equipment.
Strict rules apply in the FINEP Group determining which employee or department may be allowed access to personal data and which personal data they can process. We in principle do not pass on personal data outside the FINEP Group, with the exception of cases when we have consent to do so, when this obligation is imposed on us or in cases when the legislation or our legitimate interest allows us to do so (for example, in the case of suppliers or requests by the law enforcement authorities etc.).
We only process the personal data of children (i.e. people under the age of 18) if the child was initially represented by a parent or other guardian. The high standards of personal data protection which apply to personal data processing in our group also apply to children unchanged in scope. These standards are absolutely sufficient for processing the personal data of children. As parents or other guardians of the child, you are responsible for provision of data about the child being in compliance with their interests and for informing the child about processing of their personal data by us and their rights in a comprehensible manner.
We recommend that you read the information carefully. We have done our best to ensure that it is as easy-to-understand as possible. If despite this, anything is unclear, we will be happy to explain any terminology or passage to you.
