Personal data protection
The controller will protect the obtained data in accordance with the applicable personal data protection legislation and in accordance with internal acts implemented on the basis of the law. The controller will provide adequate organizational and technical protection and will not submit or disclose the obtained data to third persons under any circumstances. The company AKCS d.o.o. initiates and maintains appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect personal data. However, no one can guarantee one hundred percent safety when transferring data online.
The provisions of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) stipulate that the personal data controller must, at the user’s request:
confirm whether the data related to the user is being processed or not and enable the user to access their data;
provide a copy of the personal data related to the user;
allow the user to correct or amend their personal data;
allow the user to partially or completely delete their personal data;
allow the user to transfer their personal data to another provider of similar services;
allow the user to partially or completely revoke their consent to personal data processing.
The controller will honour your wish to revoke your consent and finalize the revocation of your consent to personal data processing within 15 days.
Any individual who feels that their rights in relation to personal data protection have been breached by the controller may file a complaint with the supervisory authority (the Information Commissioner of the Republic of Slovenia) at any given time.
Every user has the option of sending an e-mail with the revocation as an answer to a received e-mail.
Contractual processors and storage area
The controller forwards the collected personal data to the contractual processors, who may process the data solely within the scope of the controller's instructions and authorizations and who are obliged by a written contract concluded with the controller to provide an adequate level of personal data protection, specifically: for CRM, an e-mail marketing system, and a marketing automation system. The provider stores personal data files in the EU and does not export them to third countries.
The controller may forward personal data to digital advertising platforms (Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.) and use their cookies that enable the controller to create more precise segments, display targeted ads, and conduct remarketing. The controller thus provides the user with more relevant advertisements on these platforms. This may involve the export of data to a contractual processor outside the EU.
