PERSONAL DATA POLICY
valid as of 25/05/2018
Information on Personal Data Processing
We would like to inform you that, for Retail@Link, the protection of personal data is a priority. We are, therefore, taking the necessary technical andorganisational measures to protect the personal data we process and to ensure that personal data processing is always carried out in compliance with statutory obligations, both by the Company itself and by third parties which process personal data on behalf of the Company.
What is the GDPR
The General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation EU 2016/679) is the new European Union (EU) regulatory framework for data protection. The purpose of the law is to lay down the conditions for the processing of personal data, the protection of the rights and freedoms of natural persons and in particular, the right to protect their personal data.
Controller or Processor
The company “ΡΙΤΕΪΛΛΙΝΚ AE” trading as “Retail@Link”, which has its registered offices at 362 Syngrou Avenue, Kallithea, Attica, P.C. 17674, email: email@example.com , telephone: +302111063800 as legally represented, hereby states that, for the purposes of exercising its business activities, it processes its clients’ personal data in accordance with both current Greek laws and EU Regulation 2016/679 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free flow of such data (the General Data Protection Regulation, hereinafter called the “Regulation”), as in force. Depending on the specific characteristics of each contract that it signs with its clients, Retail@Link may act as a controller or as a processor.
When Retail@Link itself determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data which it manages (e.g. as part of its relations with its employees, in the way it processes the contact details of its clients), then it acts as a controller in accordance with Article 4 (7) of the GDPR.
When Retail@Link acts as a service provider to the client by providing IT support and IT services, and thus processes personal data on behalf of its clients, then it is deemed to be the processor in accordance with Article 4 (8) of the GDPR and the client is considered to be the controller. When acting as a processor of personal data, Retail@Link is required, in respect of its clients/controllers, to take the necessary technical and organisational measures to be able to guarantee the protection of the personal data it processes in accordance with the requirements of the GDPR.
Please contact the Retail@Link Data Protection Department and the Retail@Link Data Protection Officer (DPO) about any issue whatsoever connected to personal data processing using the following contact details:

- In IT systems implementation and support services (as processors), our staff may gain access to personal data in a client’s database, and/or may use applications and links that allow remote communication and provision of services. All appropriate organizational and technically feasible measures to protect personal data are taken when these services are provided

Recipients outside the European Union
We do not provide your data to recipients with registered offices outside the European Union or the European Economic Area.
Period of Storage
The period for which the personal data are stored is determined based on the following specific criteria depending on each case:
When the processing is imposed as an obligation by the provisions of the current legal framework, your personal data will be stored for the period necessitated by the relevant provisions.
When the processing is carried out on the basis of a contract, your personal data are stored for as long as is necessary for the implementation of the contract, and the establishment, exercise and/or support of legal claims based on the contract.
When the processing is based on your consent, your personal data will be stored until this consent is retracted. You can withdraw your consent at any time. Withdrawal of consent does not affect the legality of consent-based processing in the period before this consent was withdrawn.
Security of Personal Data
Retail@Link implements the appropriate technical and organisational measures with the aim of ensuring secure processing of personal data and preventing accidental loss or destruction or unauthorised and/or unlawful access thereto or unlawful use, amendment, or disclosure thereof. In any case, the way the Internet operates and the fact that it is freely accessible to anyone makes it impossible to provide guarantees that unauthorised third parties will never be able to breach the technical and organisational measures implemented and gain access to, and possibly use, personal data for unauthorised and/or unlawful purposes.
In cases where, either due to the use of new technologies or because of the large-scale processing of the specific categories of data, a high risk is likely to be posed to the rights and freedoms of our clients, before carrying out such processing, Retail@Link assesses the impacts the planned processing will have on personal data protection (DPIA).
Actions if your personal data have been breached
In case that a violation of your personal data is detected and this violation may pose a risk to your rights and freedoms, Retail@Link, when acting as a controller, undertakes to disclose this without delay, and if possible, within 72 hours of it becoming aware of the breach, to the Data Protection Authority. When Retail@Link acts as a processor, it is committed to notifying a breach of your personal data to the controller without delay. If this breach presents an increased risk to your rights, Retail@Link will inform you of this promptly unless it is able to access the risk using the appropriate technical and organizational means at its disposal.
What are your rights as regards your personal data?
Any natural person whose data are processed by Retail@Link enjoys the following rights:

Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data in the following cases: (a) when you contest the accuracy of the personal data until verification is performed; (b) when you oppose the erasure of the personal data and request the restriction of their use instead; (c) when the personal data are no longer needed for the purposes of the processing, but they are necessary for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims; and (d) when you object to processing and until it is verified that there are legitimate grounds concerning us and that such grounds override those for which you object to processing.
Right to object to processing
You have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data in the cases where, as described above, it is necessary for purposes involved in the legitimate interests we pursue as data controllers, and also to prossessing for direct marketing purposes. In particular, you have the right to oppose any decision taken solely on the basis of automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects which relate to you or which affect you significantly.

Right to data portability
You have the right to receive your personal data free of charge in a format which allows you to access them, use them and process them with widely used processing methods. You also have the right to request us, if it is technically feasible, to transmit the data directly to another controller.
