Implementation of data-protection principles
VIGANJ COMMERCE, within the framework of the implementation of this Policy, pays special attention to respecting the principles of data processing and processes data:
- Lawfully – data processing is made possible when it is permitted by law and only within the limits permitted by law.
- Fairly – by taking into account the specifics of each relationship, applying all appropriate measures for the protection of personal data and privacy in general, and allowing data subjects to exercise their rights.
- In a transparent manner – by informing data subjects about the processing of personal data. From the beginning of data collection itself, when data subjects are informed about all aspects of data processing, until the end of data processing, data subjects are in accordance with the provisions of the Regulation granted a simple and quick access to their own data, including the ability to inspect and obtain a copy thereof. The access to certain information may be restricted only when this is required by law or necessary for the protection of third parties.
- By ensuring purpose limitation – personal data is processed for the purposes for which they are collected and may be processed for other purposes only when the requirements laid down in the Regulation are fulfilled. Data may be processed for duplicate purposes only by taking into account (a) any link between the purposes for which the personal data have been collected and the purposes of the intended further processing; (b) the context in which the personal data have been collected, in particular regarding the relationship between data subjects and Valamar;
- (c) the nature of the personal data, in particular whether special categories of personal data are processed, pursuant to Article 9 of the Regulation, or whether personal data related to criminal convictions and offences are processed, pursuant to Article 10 of the Regulation; (d) the possible consequences of the intended further processing for data subjects; and (e) the existence of appropriate safeguards.
- By ensuring storage limitation – data must be stored in a form which permits identification of data subjects for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal data are processed and may be stored longer only when this is allowed by the Regulation.
- By ensuring data minimisation – data is processed only when they are adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary. A special attention is given not to collect data for which there is no justified need for processing.
- By ensuring accountability – data must be accurate and kept up to date, and every reasonable step must be taken to erase inaccurate data.
- With integrity and confidentiality – processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the personal data, including protection against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage, using appropriate technical or organisational measures. Relevant measures are applied taking into account the risk related to each type of data processing.
Transfer of data to third parties
The access to the personal data of guests, where necessary and to a limited extent, may also be granted to third party processors (for example, associates of VIGANJ COMMERCE that provide IT or other services), who store such data in their databases until due processing of such data is completed. We will conclude a detailed contract with such parties regarding their powers and obligations during the processing of personal data, in accordance with the requirements of the Regulation.
Under certain circumstances, external parties and VIGANJ COMMERCE may jointly determine the purpose and manner of personal data processing. In that event, such external partners and Valamar will be considered joint data controllers. Joint data controllers, in their mutual relationship, determine their own responsibilities for acting in compliance with obligations prescribed by the Regulation in a transparent manner, especially with regard to the exercise of rights held by data subjects and their duty to process data in a transparent manner, unless their responsibilities are already established by law.

Video surveillance system
VIGANJ COMMERCE, as the data controller, has the legitimate interest to implement video surveillance measures to protect property and persons in relation to certain workplace positions and statutory duty to install surveillance cameras that record employees and anyone moving within the surveillance camera field of view.
VIGANJ COMMERCE indicates all places where video surveillance system is installed in the prescribed manner.
VIGANJ COMMERCE is aware that the video recordings contain personal data of all the persons moving within the surveillance camera field of view, and therefore handles them with special care. Furthermore, we have implemented a security system and introduced availability and erasure policy regulated by internal VIGANJ COMMERCE rules on safety.
Video recordings are regularly rewritten and thus automatically deleted after a maximum of 15 days after they are recorded. Exceptionally, video recordings are kept longer when they serve as evidence in proceedings before competent state authorities. Extracted video recordings are stored in a centralised messaging system with extremely limited access.
In the event of judicial and/or criminal proceedings, VIGANJ COMMERCE may use such video recordings. Access to personal data captured on video recordings may be granted to third parties, data processors and contractual partners of VIGANJ COMMERCE who are registered and qualified to provide services of personal and property protection and who do not use any of these data independently but participate in activities related to the security of central supervisory and alarm systems. All other details regarding video surveillance are subject to special regulations that govern that area.
Protecting the personal information of children
VIGANJ COMMERCE advises parents and guardians to teach their children the importance of being responsible when dealing with personal information on the internet. VIGANJ COMMERCE does not wish to collect and has no intention of collecting personal information of children. Personal information of children will be neither used nor divulged to third parties. A child may give his or her consent solely in relation to the provision of IT company services, whereby such child must be older than 16 years of age. VIGANJ COMMERCE may process all other information of children below the stated age limit and children under 18 years of age, except as expressly stated herein, only with the prior consent of the parent.
Rectification of data
You can contact us at any time to review your personal information, as well as for the purpose of updating, rectification or erasure of your data. Until such time, we will use your previously recorded data for the aforementioned purposes.
Technical and integrated data protection
VIGANJ COMMERCE, as the data controller, takes utmost care to meet the highest organisational and technical data protection standards. We, therefore, taking into account state of the art developments, the cost of implementation and the nature, scope, context and purpose of processing, as well as the risks arising from data processing of various levels of probability and severity that may affect the rights or freedoms of natural persons, at the time of choosing the processing resources and at the time of the processing itself, take appropriate technical and organisational measures to enable the effective application of data protection principles.
Furthermore, VIGANJ COMMERCE takes the appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure that only personal data necessary for each special purpose of processing are processed in an integrated way. VIGANJ COMMERCE imposes this measure to the amount of collected personal data, scope of their processing, storage period and their availability. Specifically, such measures ensure that personal data are not automatically, without personal intervention, made available to an unlimited number of persons.
Records of processing activities
VIGANJ COMMERCE, as the data controller, keeps records on processing activities involving the following data:
- Name and contact details of data controller or, where applicable, joint data controller, and data protection officer;
- Processing purposes;
- Description of data subject categories and personal data categories;
- Categories of recipients to whom personal data are or will be disclosed, including recipients in third countries or international organisations;
- Where applicable, the transfer of personal data to a third country or an international organisation, including the identification of such third country or international organisation and, in the event of transfer referred to in Article 49, paragraph 1, sub-paragraph 2, documentation on appropriate safeguards;
- When possible, planed deadlines for erasure of different categories of data;
- When possible, a general description of technical and organisational safeguards.
Personal data breach
VIGANJ COMMERCE, as the data controller, ensures that in the event of personal data breach, the competent supervisory authority is notified of personal data breach without further delays and, if possible, at least 72 hours after such breach has occurred, unless it is not likely that such personal data breach will pose a risk to rights and freedoms of natural persons.
The report submitted to the supervisory authority must contain all information prescribed by the Regulation.
In the event of personal data breach that is likely to pose high risk to rights and freedoms of natural persons, VIGANJ COMMERCE, as the data controller, will notify the data subject of such personal data breach without further delays. Data subjects will not be notified where the Regulation stipulates that such notification is not mandatory.
Data protection impact assessment
Where a type of processing in particular using new technologies, and taking into account the nature, scope, context and purposes of the processing, is likely to result in a high risk to the rights and freedoms of data subjects, Valamar will, as the data controller, prior to the processing, carry out an assessment of the impact of the envisaged processing operations on the protection of personal data.
A single assessment may address a set of similar processing operations that present similar high risks.
VIGANJ COMMERCE performs a data protection impact assessment in the event of:
- Systematic and extensive evaluation of personal aspects relating to natural persons which is based on automated processing, including profiling, and on which decisions are based that produce legal effects concerning the natural person or similarly significantly affect the natural person;
- Processing on a large scale of special categories of data referred to in Article 9, paragraph 1, or of personal data relating to criminal convictions and offences referred to in Article 10 of the Regulation;
- Systematic monitoring of a publicly accessible area on a large scale;
- Any other situation defined by the competent supervisory authority.
VIGANJ COMMERCE ensures an adequate involvement of data protection officers in the performance of impact assessment.
In accordance with the provisions of the Regulation and, when necessary, after the performance impact assessment, we will consult the supervisory authority prior to processing.
