Transfer of personal data outside the EEA
The level of protection for personal data outside the European Economic Area (EEA) differs from that provided by European law. For this reason, the Controller transfers personal data outside the EEA only when necessary and with an adequate degree of protection, primarily by:
- cooperating with processors of personal data in countries for which a relevant decision of the European Commission has been issued regarding the determination of an adequate level of protection for personal data;
- applying standard contractual clauses issued by the European Commission;
- applying binding corporate rules approved by the relevant supervisory authority.
The European Commission certifies that certain third countries have data protection comparable to the EEA standard based on a so-called “adequacy decision” (a list of these countries and a copy of the adequacy decision can be downloaded from: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection_pl). However, sometimes personal data may be transferred to third countries within the meaning of the GDPR that are not included in the list above, such as Armenia, Belarus, Montenegro, Georgia, Russia, Ukraine, Moldova, Serbia. Travel to countries outside the EU, will be able to involve the processing of personal data by that country.
In all cases of data transfer, the standards adopted by the European Commission contained in Article 46 of the GDPR apply.
Security of personal data
The controller conducts risk analysis on an ongoing basis to ensure that personal data is processed in a safe manner – ensuring, above all, that only authorized persons have access to the data and only to the extent necessary for the tasks they perform. The Controller shall ensure that all operations on personal data are recorded and performed only by authorized employees and associates.
