This policy provides a framework for responding to requests to exercise those rights. It is the company’s policy to ensure that requests by individuals covered by this policy to exercise their rights in respect of their personal information are handled in accordance with applicable law.

        15a. This policy applies to all individuals based in the EU (“EU Individuals”). EU Individuals may be employees or former employees, contractors, consumers, end-users, employees of customers, service providers, employees of service providers and any other person based in the EU whose personal information the company processes.

        15b. For the purposes of this policy, “EU Personal Data” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable EU Individual. An identifiable EU Individual is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, by reference to an identifier, such as a name, identification number or online identifier. “Processing” means any operation or set of operations which is performed on EU Personal Data or sets of EU Personal Data, such as collection, use, storage, dissemination and destruction.

        15c. This policy only applies to the EU Personal Data Processed by the company. Other individuals may also have rights regarding their personal information but they are not covered by this policy.

        Right to Access EU Personal Data 

        15d. EU Individuals have the right to request access to their EU Personal Data Processed by the company. Such requests are called subject access requests (“SARs”). EU Individuals can make SARs to find out what EU Personal Data the company has about them.

        15e. When an EU Individual makes a SAR the company must, unless there is an exemption under applicable law (see Exemptions below), take the following steps:

        1. log the date on which the request was received by the company (to ensure that the relevant timeframe of one month for responding to the request is met);
        2. confirm the identity of the EU Individual who is the subject of the EU Personal Data (this may be very straightforward in the case of a current employee but more difficult in the case of, e.g., a historic prospective customer or former end-user). The company may request additional information from the EU Individual to confirm his/her identity;
        3. search databases, systems, applications and other places where the EU Personal Data which are the subject of the request may be held;
        4. confirm to the EU Individual whether or not EU Personal Data of the EU Individual making the SAR are being Processed;
        5. if EU Personal Data of the EU Individual are being Processed, provide the EU Individual with the following information in a concise, transparent, intelligible and easily accessible form, using clear and plain language, in writing or by other (including electronic) means:
          1. the purposes of the Processing;
          2. the categories of EU Personal Data concerned (e.g., contact details, bank account information and details of sales activity);
          3. the recipients or categories of recipient to whom the EU Personal Data have been or will be disclosed, in particular recipients overseas (e.g. US-based service providers);
          4. where possible, the envisaged period for which the EU Personal Data will be stored, or, if not possible, the criteria used to determine that period;
          5. the existence of the right to request from the company rectification or erasure of EU Personal Data or restriction of Processing of EU Personal Data or to object to such Processing;
          6. the right to lodge a complaint with the data protection authority in their country;
          7. where the EU Personal Data are not collected from the EU Individual, any available information as to their source;
          8. the existence of automated decision-making and meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the significance and the envisaged consequences of such processing for the EU Individual; and
          9. where EU Personal Data are transferred outside the EU, details of the appropriate safeguards to protect the EU Personal Data;
        6. review the EU Personal Data requested to see if they contain the personal data of other individuals. If they do, the company should consider redacting the personal data of those other individuals prior to providing the EU Individual with his/her EU Personal Data.
        7. provide the EU Individual with a copy of the EU Personal Data Processed by the company in a commonly used electronic form (unless the EU Individual either did not make the request by electronic means or has specifically requested not to be provided with the copy on electronic form) within one month of receipt of the request. If the request is complex, or there are a number of requests, the company may extend the period for responding by a further two months. If the company extends the period for responding it shall inform the EU Individual within one month of receipt of the request and explain the reason(s) for the delay; and
        8. if the request is manifestly unfounded or excessive, e.g. because of its repetitive character, the company may charge a reasonable fee, taking into account the administrative costs of providing the EU Personal Data or refuse to act on the request.

        15f. If the company is not going to respond to the request it shall inform the EU Individual of the reasons for not taking action and of the possibility of lodging a complaint with the data protection authority in their country.

        15q. Where Processing has been restricted, the company must only Process the EU Personal Data (excluding storing them) with the EU Individual’s consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another person or for reasons of important public interest.

        Right to Object to Processing

        15t. EU Individuals have the right, in certain circumstances, to object to the Processing of their EU Personal Data. Where such an objection is made, the company must, unless there is an exemption under applicable law (see Exemptions below), no longer Process the EU Personal Data:

EU Individuals have the right, in certain circumstances, not to be subject to a decision based solely on the automated Processing of their EU Personal Data, if such decision produces legal effects concerning them or similarly significantly affects them. Where such a request is made, the company must, unless there is an exemption under applicable law (see Exemptions below), no longer make such a decision unless it:

        1. is necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between the EU Individual and the company (in which case the company must implement suitable measures to safeguard the EU Individual’s rights, freedoms and legitimate interests, including the right to obtain human intervention, to express his/her point of view and to contest the decision);
        2. is authorised by applicable law which lays down suitable measures to safeguard the EU Individual’s rights, freedoms and legitimate interests (in which case the company must implement suitable measures to safeguard the EU Individual’s rights, freedoms and legitimate interests, including the right to obtain human intervention, to express his/her point of view and to contest the decision); or
        3. is based on the EU Individual’s explicit consent.

        15x. EU Individuals who are subject to automated decision-making must be notified at the time their EU Personal Data of the fact that they will be subject to automated decision-making and informed of the logic involved and the envisaged consequences of such Processing.

        Partium complies with the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework as set forth by the US Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information from European Union member countries transferred to the United States pursuant to Privacy Shield. Partium has certified that it adheres to the Privacy Shield Principles with respect to such data. If there is any conflict between the policies in this privacy policy and data subject rights under the Privacy Shield Principles, the Privacy Shield Principles shall govern.
