6. Legal bases for the use of personal data
The bases on which we use your personal data are as follows:
- The law – We process your personal data when we are required to do so by the law (this includes, in particular, the Employment Relationship Act, which serves as the basis for the majority of processing activities arising from the employment relationship or the management of recruitment procedures. Other laws can serve as a basis as well, for example Labour and Social Security Registers Act, which imposes an obligation on the employer to keep records of employees).
- Contractual or pre-contractual relationship – When personal data are not processed on the basis of the law, the contractual relationship with the employer can serve as the basis for the processing of personal data. This may mean an employment contract or another contract, such as an education contract. Such data include, in particular, a private (contact) telephone number, a private (contact) e-mail address, information on education, information on company vehicles, etc.).
- Legitimate interests – Your personal data may be processed on the basis of our legitimate interests. Whenever we process your personal data on the basis of legitimate interests, we will explicitly indicate this in this Policy or inform you in advance by a special form. On the basis of our legitimate interest to provide a healthy and safe working environment and improve our communication with employees, we process your personal data within the Idejnica application offered by the employer. On the basis of our legal interest to optimise the organisation of business trips in the Medis network, personal data of the employee may be forwarded to one of the affiliated companies, for the purpose of organising the accommodation, transport and participation of individual employees at the event or a business trip.
- Your explicit consent – We may occasionally ask you to give consent so we can use your personal data for one or more purposes. Whenever the legal basis for the processing of your personal data is your consent, we will inform you in advance.
We will ask all candidates for the consent to fulfil certain parts of the Employment Form and the Questionnaire upon applying for a job, and we will ask our employees for their consent to publish their birthday in the Outlook business card, to publish photos in the presentation of new employees, to publish a slogan with personal data on the screens and HR ads in the group companies, to publish photos from events, and to process data of children for the purpose of giving them gifts and to publish photographs of children from events. We will also ask non-selected candidates for the consent, i.e. whose personal data we want to keep for future recruitment purposes. Check out the section your rights for information about the rights that you have if we process your data on the basis of your consent.
You are obliged to provide us with personal data that we collect and process on the basis of the law. The submission of personal data for the entry into (and execution) of a contract is voluntary. Nevertheless, we warn you that if you do not provide personal data that we absolutely need to provide a service, we cannot provide you with such services (for example, the submission of data on a personal car that an employee wants to use as a company vehicle is necessary for the entry into of a contract on the use of a company vehicle).
When processing your personal data on the basis of a consent, the provision of personal data is always voluntary and without any negative consequences for you. Nevertheless, we warn you that we will not be able to provide you with certain services without your consent or after the withdrawal of your consent (for example, keeping your personal data in order to contact you when a relevant job vacancy opens for you).
7. Retention period
We store all personal data that we process in accordance with the law and only for the time period required to achieve the purposes for which the data were collected.
When the time period for the retention of personal data is prescribed by the law, the data are kept in accordance with the provisions of such act.
With regard to the collection and processing of personal data on the basis of a contract, the time period for the retention of data is the entire period of the validity of the contract, including warranty or any other time periods arising from the concluded contract.
With regard to the collection and processing of personal data on the basis of your explicit consent, we will keep your personal data permanently or until the withdrawal of the consent. If the purpose for which we have processed the data is fulfilled, we will delete your data even if you do not withdraw the consent. For example, if we decide not to post photos of new employees, we will delete all of the already published photos even without a withdrawal of the consent.
8. The manner of protecting your data
The employer undertakes to protect any personal data you provide to us. The employer undertakes to do everything to protect personal data against any violations and abuses.
The personal data are kept in a written form (in personal folders, in locked cabinets) and in computerized form. Our computer systems are protected by technical and organisational measures that prevent accidental or deliberate destruction, loss, damage, alteration and unauthorised disclosure or access to your personal data.
Among other things, technical and organisational measures that we use to protect your personal data include:
- regular backup of copies, which are properly protected,
- limitation of access to personal data,
- care for education of employees in the field of personal data protection and supervision over the work of employees.
Technical and organisational measures for the protection of personal data referred to in this policy are defined in more detail in the Rules on the protection of personal data in force at the employer.
After the expiry of the retention period or the withdrawal of the given consent, the data (including any copies thereof) shall be immediately irretrievably and permanently deleted. Any carriers of personal data where these data are located shall also be destroyed/permanently deleted.
In the event of a personal data breach, we will immediately inform the competent supervisory authority of the violation. In Lithuania, the competent authority for personal data protection is the
State Data Protection Inspectorate. You can find out more about the function of the competent authority on their website: https://vdai.lrv.lt/en/. If, in the event of a personal data breach, a suspicion could arise that a criminal offence was committed, we will immediately notify the police or the competent prosecutor's office.
In the event of a personal data breach where there is a high risk for the rights and freedoms of individuals whose personal data are processed, we will inform you of such a breach without undue delay.
