You have the right to access your personal data processed by us and request detailed information on the purposes of the processing, the types/categories of personal data including consultation of your own personal data, on the recipients or categories of recipients and the envisaged storage period.

4.5. Right to Object

5. GRANTING THE RIGHT TO USE PERSONAL DATA
We may forward your personal data to providers of information and communication solutions and services that act as processors.
We have signed contracts with such processors detailing the handling of personal data, which means that they are not able to process your personal data without our permission or forward them to third parties.
In certain circumstances, we have the legal obligation to forward your personal data, and the processing of such data may also involve their international transfer. Such a legal obligation may arise from national or EU legislation. For example, joint supervisory activities of Member States’ supervisory authorities may sometimes be necessary, or actions might need be taken to collect payments of fines imposed but not paid. Therefore, your data is forwarded to other parties when we are bound by the relevant regulation to the extent necessary to achieve the identified purpose.
Your personal data will not be forwarded to third parties for direct marketing purposes.
6. SECURITY OF PERSONAL DATA
We collect and process personal data in a way that ensures adequate security and confidentiality in their processing and enables the effective application of data protection principles with regard to data minimisation, the scale of processing, the storage period and availability.
We take all appropriate technical and organisational data protection measures to prevent accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized use, disclosure, insight or access.
All employees of the controller are obliged to safeguard personal data by signing a confidentiality statement.
Employees of the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs are obliged to keep all personal and other confidential data they encounter in the course of their duties as a professional or other appropriate type of secret, in accordance with the law governing data confidentiality. That obligation continues to be in force after the termination of employment.
7. PERSONAL DATA STORAGE PERIOD
We process your personal data until the purpose of the processing is fulfilled. Upon termination of the purpose for which they were collected, we no longer use your personal data; they remain in our storage system for the period of time laid down by the General Regulation on keeping archival material.
