Charter of personal data of the company MAHDI HOLDING sro Slovakia

  1. How is the data collected?
    MAHDI HOLDING sro collects, through its activities, data, some of which make it possible to identify or make identifiable natural persons.

    1.1. The legal basis of the collection
    The legislation lists the legal bases for the collection of personal data, in other words the legitimate justifications for a data collection. These legal bases are explained and/or recalled in the context of the collections made by MAHDI HOLDING sro.

    As such, MAHDI HOLDING sro is likely to collect personal data on the basis of:

  2. the consent of the person concerned ;
    .in business-to-business relationships, the prior consent of the data subject is not required for commercial solicitations sent to the business email address as soon as these solicitations are related to the profession of the person in question. This tolerance is called the "BtoB exception". As the activities of the MAHDI HOLDING sro. are mainly carried out between professionals, the collections are often made following prior information.
    .Prior consent is also not required for any solicitation sent to a data subject for services/products similar to those that this person would have already acquired from the same organisation.

  3. the performance of obligations under a contract ;
    N.B.: The collection of personal data of our customers and users is necessary in order to execute the terms of the contract (e.g. subscription, subscription to an online service - free or paying,....) and to ensure the provision of the subscribed service or the product acquired by the natural person concerned. Thus, in this context, the consent of the individual is not necessary since the processing operations carried out are linked to the performance of the contract. The same applies to the transmission to identified third parties of personal data following a request for contact (recruitment, request for a quote or information, visitors to stands at a trade fair, participation in a webinar, etc.).
    ♦ the legitimate interest¹ of the data controller ;
    N.B.: In order to develop its business, MAHDI HOLDING sro may offer you commercial offers on behalf of itself or its customers. In certain circumstances, the very nature of the service provided by MAHDI HOLDING sro implies the collection of personal data from its customers and users and the transmission of this information to third parties (e.g.: professional directories, targeted contact files). Of course, MAHDI HOLDING sro regularly assesses whether its legitimate interest is not counterbalanced by the interest of the person concerned or by the respect of his/her fundamental rights and freedoms and you can in any case oppose this type of use.

  4. a legal obligation making the processing mandatory.
    N.B.: The regulatory context of an activity may make certain processing and transfer of data mandatory: e.g. for invoicing of products or services, training activities (attendance sheet), etc...
    1.2. Methods of collection :
    1.2.1. Collection through forms
    Accessing, using, downloading, purchasing or subscribing to certain services or products implies the collection of personal data concerning the prospective client or user. In these cases, when filling in paper or electronic forms, people transmit information about themselves. These forms systematically specify
    the name of the data controller,
    the purposes associated with the collection made,
    whether the collection is made necessary by the subscription to the service concerned or by the purchase of the product envisaged,
    any other uses envisaged;
    a reference to the relevant pages of this charter on the procedures for exercising rights by individuals, the contact details of the DPO, the rules concerning the duration of data retention, the procedures for lodging a complaint with the supervisory authority, etc...
