We protect your data. We consider privacy and personal data protection as a primary obligation.
We handle personal data solely in compliance with the valid legislation. We hereby introduce the principles that clarify what we do to ensure the confidentiality and security of the personal data processed and provide information on the rights relating to the personal data processing. This communication is aimed at providing information on the personal data we collect, how we handle such data, the sources from which we obtain such data and for what purposes we use them, to whom we are allowed to provide such data and where you can obtain information on the personal data we process.
Burza cenných papírů Praha, a. s. (Identification No. (IČ): 47115629; hereinafter the “BCPP”) is the administrator of the personal data that you provided to the BCPP or your personal data that the BCPP obtained (see the chapter Source of personal data below) to fulfil one purpose or several purposes. The BCPP as the administrator collects the data, disposes therewith and is liable for the due and legal processing of such data. You can exercise your rights with the administrator in the manner specified below.
You can contact the administrator or its data protection officer with queries concerning the personal data processing; the contact data of the administrator and the data protection officer are available at Contacts website.
We follow in particular the following principles when processing personal data:
We only process such data that enable us to provide professional and comfort services to you and to fulfil our legal obligations and contractual undertakings and to protect our rightful interests.
We collect in particular data concerning account owners in book-entered securities registers. Depending on the situation, we also process data on representatives, including members of statutory bodies and employees of the capital market participants, and other contractual partners. We process basic personal data, data on products and services that you use and how you use it, data from our communication and interaction as well as other data so that the scope of such data is reasonable, relevant and restricted to the necessary extent with regard to the purpose for which we collect and process your data. Our main purpose is to provide professional and comfort services to you but we must fulfil our legal obligations and we wish to protect our rightful interests; see below a complete list of the purposes for which we process your data, including a specification of the concrete data processed for the given purpose.
Personal data we process:
We process personal data to the necessary extent for the relevant legal purpose, for example to be able to provide the relevant service. The data is typically processed for the purposes of identification of the account owner in the extent of the mandatory account owner data pursuant to the Capital Market Trading Act or processing of identification data of the representatives of issuers and actual owners pursuant to the Anti-Money Laundering Act. We process certain data since it is necessary to protect the rights and interests of our company and of third parties protected by law or for the purposes of fulfilling the rights and obligations arising from agreements. The scope of processing is minimalized and we carefully assess the existence of the rightful interest. In other cases, we only process your data if you so agree.
The purposes of processing include the following categories without the data subject’s consent:
With the data subject’s consent:
The data that you provide us with your consent is provided voluntarily.
We request that you provide other data since the processing of such data is necessary for the performance of the agreement, for the fulfilment of our legal obligations or for the protection of our rightful interests. If you do not provide such data to us, we cannot provide you with the relevant product, service or any other performance for which we request your personal data.
Depending on the situation, we process data that we received from the BCPP participants, from subjects with which we have concluded an agreement, data that we received during the conclusion of the relevant contractual relationship and the subsequent realization of such relationship, data from publicly available sources and registers, lists and records (such as the Companies Register) and data from third parties, if a special regulation so sets forth. To fulfil a law or a contractual relationship, we may pass on data between us within the framework of our holding group PX (Centrální depozitář cenných papírů, a. s. and Burza cenných papírů Praha, a. s.).
The BCPP processes personal data by automated means and manually.
In principle, we process personal data in our company. We only provide the data to a group company with the data subject’s consent or if it is set forth by law (for example the capital market regulator’s supervision). Where it is necessary to achieve any of the above-mentioned purposes, in particular if the relevant external subject achieved the necessary professional and expert level in the relevant area, your data may be processed by cooperating contractors.
We process personal data transparently, fairly and in compliance with the law. You have the right to access your data, right to explanation as well as other rights if you believe that the processing is not correct. You can also file a complaint with the Personal Data Protection Office. You can exercise your rights in the relevant company from our group with which you have a relationship.
If you have any queries connected with personal data processing or if you wish to exercise your rights, you can contact the administrator’s data protection officer whose contact data is stated on Contacts website. You can also contact the administrator in writing at the address, which is also stated on Contacts website.
Right of access to personal data and right to be informed – You are entitled to access your personal data, in particular the information on the processing of your personal data. Such right does not apply to any data contained in the property account statement; such data is provided to account owners through the BCPP participants in compliance with the Capital Market Trading Act, without prejudice to third-party rights. For repeated requests, the BCPP and the participants may request reasonable compensation that must not exceed the costs necessary for the provision of the information.
Right to personal data correction – If your personal data is incorrect or inaccurate you may request correction of such data. It is possible to request completion of incomplete data taking into account the purposes for which the data is processed. In compliance with the Capital Market Trading Act, such right does not apply to owners of unclassified accounts where the personal data is adjusted by the BCPP’s participant after the contractual relationship is concluded with the owner of an unclassified account.
Right to removal – You are entitled that your personal data be removed if our processing is unauthorized.
Right to raise an objection – Should the BCPP breach its obligations concerning collecting or processing of personal data, you are entitled to request that the BCPP provides an explanation of such conduct, refrains from such conduct or remedies the relevant situation. You are also entitled to contact the Personal Data Protection Office with your initiatives.
Other rights – You have the right to restrict the processing and the right to data transferability under the conditions set forth by law.
