“Data subject” means any identified or identifiable person who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person;

2. Basic information about personal data processing conducted by the Company
We always process your personal data lawfully, fairly, in a transparent manner and for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes. We process personal data only to the minimum necessary extent and we keep them in a form which permits your identification for no longer than is necessary vis-à-vis the purpose of the processing.
We process your personal data in a manner that sufficiently ensures their integrity and confidentiality, i.e. by appropriate technical or organisational measures and appropriate protection against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against loss, destruction or damage. We take care to ensure that personal data that are inaccurate, having regard to the purpose for which we process them, are erased or rectified without delay.
We respect the principle of refraining from personal data processing and the principle of data minimisation. We therefore only retain your personal data if it is necessary in order to achieve the purpose of the processing or for various retention periods specified by law. The relevant data are erased in accordance with the law if the relevant purpose ceases to exist as a result of the withdrawal of your consent and/or upon the expiration of the lawful retention period.
For the above reasons, we use computer security such as a firewall and data encryption to operate our Websites. We have implemented adequate physical, electronic and procedural safeguards and use reliable IT service providers. However, given the nature of the internet, we would like to bring to your attention the fact that certain security gaps may exist in the transmission of personal data via the internet (e.g. in communication via e-mail) and that full protection of personal data preventing third party access is impossible.
