Personal data processing principles

In accordance with the requirements outlined in the GDPR, personal data will be:

● Processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in relation to individuals.Thus, the legal basis for processing data will be identified and documented prior to data being processed. Under the GDPR, data will be lawfully processed under one of the following conditions:

○ The consent of the data subject has been obtained.

○ Processing is necessary for:

■ Compliance with a legal obligation.

■ The performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

■ For the performance of a contract with the data subject or to take steps to enter into a contract.

■ Protecting the vital interests of a data subject or another person.

■ For the purposes of legitimate interests pursued by the controller or a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests, rights or freedoms of the data subject.

● Collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and not process the data further than for the purpose, for which it was collected; further processing for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes shall not be considered to be incompatible with the initial purposes.

ASW will process personal data only if one of the following circumstances is met:

○ The individual whom the personal data is about has consented to the processing.

○ The processing is necessary in relation to a contract which the individual has entered into.

○ The processing is necessary because of a legal obligation.

○ The processing is necessary to protect the individual’s “vital interests”.

○ The processing is necessary for administering justice or for exercising statutory/governmental or other public functions.

○ The processing is in accordance with the legitimate interests of ASW. However, if doing so would materially prejudice the rights, freedoms or legitimate interests of the persons to whom the data relate, ASW will not process any personal data purely for the purposes of their own legitimate interests.

● Adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed.

● Accurate and, where necessary, kept up-to-date : every reasonable step must be taken to ensure that personal data that are inaccurate, having regard to the purposes for which they are processed, are erased or rectified without delay. ASW will promote an easy procedure for data subjects to update their information.

● Limited storage. Personal data will be kept 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. Unrequired data will be deleted as soon as practicable. Personal data may be stored for longer periods, insofar as the personal data will be processed solely for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes, subject to implementation of the appropriate technical and organisational measures required by the GDPR in order to safeguard the rights and freedoms of individuals.

● 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. This includes both technical and organisational measures such as defined processes and training and awareness.

● Lawfully transferred outside the European Economic Area : ASW will only transfer personal data outside the European Economic Area where the relevant agreement with this supplier is in place to accommodate all the safeguards imposed by the data protection applicable legal provisions.

● Lawfully transferred to third parties: ASW shall transfer personal data to a third-party controller to the extent necessary to serve the applicable legitimate purposes for which the personal data are processed. Transfer to a third party must be in accordance with the respective legal and regulatory requirements. Data transfer is always allowed in the following situations:

● when the data subject has given his consent unambiguously to the proposed transfer;

● when the transfer is necessary for the performance of a contract between the data subject and ASW;

● when the transfer is necessary or legally required on important public interest grounds, such as national defense, public order or national security, for the purposes of criminal procedures or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims, provided that the data to be processed is in connection with this purpose and are retained for no longer than necessary;

● when the transfer is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject (incl. life, physical integrity or health);

● when the transfer is a result of a previous request for access to official documents that are public or a request for information that can be obtained from registers or any other publicly available documents.

Both the ASW and any data processor authorized by ASW, shall keep the confidentiality of the personal data, under the requirements of the law, will not disclose, publish or otherwise reveal any information relating to personal data and operations performed without an appropriate legal basis allowing them to do so.

Furthermore, data processors authorized by ASW shall disclose personal data only with the ASW’s authorization, unless a legal obligation imposes data processors to act otherwise.

Accountability

ASW will implement appropriate policies and procedures to demonstrate that data is processed in line with the principles set out in the GDPR.

ASW will provide comprehensive, clear and transparent privacy policies.

ASW will act in accordance with the GDPR by adopting a privacy by design approach and implementing technical and organisational measures which demonstrate how ASW has considered and integrated data protection into processing activities.

Additional internal records of ASW processing activities will be maintained and kept up-to-date by the different departments in the ASW Data Map. Internal records of processing activities will include the following:

● Name and details of the organisation.

● Purpose(s) of the processing.

● Description of the categories of individuals and personal data.

● Retention schedules.

● Categories of recipients of personal data.

● Description of technical and organisational security measures.

● Details of transfers to the third countries, including documentation of the transfer mechanism safeguards in place.

● Legal basis for processing.

ASW will implement measures that meet the principles of data protection by design such as:

● Data minimisation.

● Pseudonymisation.

● Transparency.

● Allowing individuals to monitor processing.

● Continuously creating and improving security features.

Data protection impact assessments (DPIAs) will be used to identify the most effective method of complying with the schools data protection obligations and meeting individuals’ expectations of privacy.

DPIAs will allow ASW to identify and resolve problems at an early stage, thus reducing associated costs and preventing damage from being caused to School reputation which might otherwise occur.

A DPIA will be used when using new technologies or when the processing is likely to result in a high risk to the rights and freedoms of individuals.

ASW will ensure that all DPIAs include the following information:

● A description of the processing operations and the purposes.

● An assessment of the necessity and proportionality of the processing in relation to the purpose.

● An outline of the risks to individuals.

● The measures implemented in order to address risk.

Where a DPIA indicates high risk data processing, ASW will consult the Polish Data Protection Authority to seek its opinion as to whether the processing operation complies with the GDPR.

Where a breach is likely to result in a risk to the rights and freedoms of individuals, the relevant supervisory authority will be informed within 72 hours of ASW becoming aware of it.

The risk of the breach having a detrimental effect on the individual, and the need to notify the relevant supervisory authority, will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.

Effective and robust breach detection, investigation and internal reporting procedures are in place at ASW, which facilitate decision-making in relation to whether the relevant supervisory authority or the public need to be notified.

○ Carrying out obligations and exercising specific rights of ASW or employee under employment, social security or social protection law, a collective agreement and child protection requirements.

○ Protecting the vital interests of a data subject or another individual where the data subject is physically or legally incapable of giving consent.

○ The establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or where courts are acting in their judicial capacity.

○ Reasons of substantial public interest on the basis of EU or Member State law which is proportionate to the aim pursued and which contains appropriate safeguards.

○ The purposes of preventative or occupational medicine, for assessing the working capacity of the employee, medical diagnosis, the provision of health or social care or treatment or management of health or social care systems and services on the basis of EU or Member State law or a contract with a health professional.

○ Reasons of public interest in the area of public health, such as protecting against serious cross-border threats to health or ensuring high standards of healthcare and of medicinal products or medical devices.

○ Archiving purposes in the public interest, or scientific and historical research purposes or statistical purposes in accordance with GDPR Article 89(1).

Consent

Consent must be:

● freely given and should reflect the data subject's genuine and free choice without any element of compulsion, or undue pressure put upon the data subject, avoiding any negative consequences in the case of refusal to give it.

● specific : ASW must clearly and precisely explain the scope and the consequences of the data processing.

● informed : the nature of the processing should be explained in an intelligible and easily accessible form, using clear and plain language which does not contain unfair terms. The data subject should be aware at least of the identity of the controller and the purposes for which the personal data will be processed.

● explicit in a positive indication : ASW will consider written declarations, email responses, and active checkboxes. Consent can not be inferred from silence, inactivity or pre-ticked boxes.

Where consent is given, a record will be kept documenting how and when consent was given.

ASW will do so within the time period required by applicable law.

ASW accepts a written statement signed by the data subject which specifies the exercise of the right to object to direct marketing. It should be forwarded to ASW at dpo@aswarsaw.org

Additionally, ASW keeps records to demonstrate that a valid consent has been given and that the data subject has been informed.

 

Withdrawal of consent

Data subject shall have the right to withdraw his or her consent at any time.

The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

ASW accepts a written statement signed by the data subject which specify the exercise of the right of withdrawal the consent. It will be forwarded in electronic form to ASW at dpo@aswarsaw.org

Data subject rights:

Right to be informed

ASW will provide a privacy notice supplied to individuals in regards to the processing of their personal data and it will be written in clear, plain language which is concise, transparent, easily accessible and free of charge.

If services are offered directly to the student, ASW will ensure that the privacy notice is written in a clear, plain manner that the student will understand.

In relation to data obtained both directly from the data subject and not obtained directly from the data subject, the following information will be supplied within the privacy notice:

● The identity and contact details of the controller, and where applicable, the controller’s representative and the DPO.

● The purpose of, and the legal basis for, processing the data.

● The legitimate interests of the controller or third party, where applicable.

● Any recipient or categories of recipients of the personal data.

● Details of transfers to third countries and the safeguards in place, where applicable.

● The retention period or criteria used to determine the retention period.

● The existence of the data subject’s rights.

● The existence of the right to withdraw consent at any time (without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal), where the processing is based on a consent.

● The existence of the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority.

● The existence of automated decision making, including profiling, how decisions are made, the significance of the process and the consequences.

● When data is obtained directly from the data subject, information regarding whether the provision of personal data is part of a statutory or contractual requirement and the details of the categories of personal data, as well as any possible consequences of failing to provide the personal data, will be provided.

When data is not obtained directly from the data subject, information regarding the source the personal data originates from and whether it came from publicly accessible sources, will be provided. In such cases, the following information will also be provided:

● Within one month of having obtained the data.

● If disclosure to another recipient is envisaged, at the latest, before the data are disclosed.

● If the data are used to communicate with the individual, at the latest, when the first communication takes place.

ASW will not provide information about processing where they reasonably consider that to do so would prejudice:

• The prevention, investigation, detection or prosecution of breaches of professional ethics or criminal offences.

• The material rights and freedoms of any person.

 

Right of access

Individuals have the right to obtain confirmation as to whether or not that their data is being processed.

Individuals have the right to submit a Subject Access Request (SAR) to gain access to their personal data.

ASW will verify the identity of the person making the request before any information is supplied.

A copy of the information will be supplied to the individual free of charge; however, ASW may impose a ‘reasonable fee’ to comply with requests for further copies of the same information.

Where a SAR has been made electronically, the information will be provided in a commonly used electronic format, unless otherwise requested by the data subject.

Where a request is manifestly unfounded, excessive or repetitive, a reasonable fee might be charged.

All fees will be based on the administrative cost of providing the information.

All requests will be responded to without delay and at the latest, within one month of receipt.

In the event of numerous or complex requests, the period of compliance will be extended by a further two months. The individual will be informed of this extension, and will receive an explanation of why the extension is necessary, within one month of the receipt of the request.

Where a request is manifestly unfounded or excessive, ASW holds the right to refuse to respond to the request. The individual will be informed of this decision and the reasoning behind it, as well as their right to complain to the supervisory authority and to a judicial remedy, within one month of the refusal.

In the event that a large quantity of information is being processed about an individual, the school will ask the individual to specify the information the request is in relation to.

 

Right to rectification

Individuals are entitled to have any inaccurate or incomplete personal data rectified.

Where the personal data in question has been disclosed to third parties, ASW will inform them of the rectification where possible.

Where appropriate, ASW will inform the individual about the third parties that the data has been disclosed to.

Requests for rectification will be responded to within one month; this will be extended by two months where the request for rectification is complex.

Where no action is being taken in response to a request for rectification, ASW will explain the reason for this to the individual, and will inform them of their right to complain to the supervisory authority and to a judicial remedy.

 

Right to erasure

Individuals hold the right to request the deletion or removal of personal data where there is no compelling reason for its continued processing. Individuals have the right to erasure in the following circumstances:

● Where the personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purpose for which it was originally collected/processed

● When the individual withdraws their consent, on which the processing is based, and where there is no other legal ground for the processing

● When the individual objects to the processing and there is no overriding legitimate interest for continuing the processing

● The personal data was unlawfully processed

● The personal data is required to be erased in order to comply with a legal obligation

● The personal data is processed in relation to the offer of information society services to the student

ASW has the right to refuse a request for erasure where the personal data is being processed for the following reasons:

● To exercise the right of freedom of expression and information

● To comply with a legal obligation for the performance of a public interest task or exercise of official authority

● For public health purposes in the public interest

● For archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific research, historical research or statistical purposes

● The exercise or defence of legal claims

As the student may not fully understand the risks involved in the processing of data when consent is obtained, special attention will be given to existing situations where the student has given consent to processing and they later request erasure of the data, regardless of age at the time of the request.

Where personal data has been disclosed to third parties, they will be informed about the erasure of the personal data, unless it is impossible or involves disproportionate effort to do so.

Where personal data has been made public, ASW, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, will take reasonable steps to inform other controllers who process the personal data that the data subject has requested the erasure by such controllers of any links to and copies of the personal data in question.

 

Right to restrict processing

Individuals have the right to block or suppress the schools processing of personal data.

In the event that processing is restricted, the school will store the personal data, but not further process it, guaranteeing that just enough information about the individual has been retained to ensure that the restriction is respected in future.

ASW will restrict the processing of personal data in the following circumstances:

● Where an individual contests the accuracy of the personal data, processing will be restricted until ASW has verified the accuracy of the data

● Where an individual has objected to the processing and ASW is considering whether their legitimate grounds override those of the individual

● Where processing is unlawful and the individual opposes erasure and requests restriction instead

● Where ASW no longer needs the personal data but the individual requires the data to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim

If the personal data in question has been disclosed to third parties, ASW will inform them about the restriction on the processing of the personal data, unless it is impossible or involves disproportionate effort to do so.

ASW will inform individuals when a restriction on processing has been lifted.

 

Right to data portability

Individuals have the right to obtain and reuse their personal data for their own purposes across different services.

Personal data can be easily moved, copied or transferred from one IT environment to another in a safe and secure manner, without hindrance to usability.

The right to data portability only applies in the following cases:

● To personal data that an individual has provided to a controller

● Where the processing is based on the individual’s consent or for the performance of a contract

● When processing is carried out by automated means

Personal data will be provided in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable form.

ASW will provide the information free of charge.

Where feasible, data will be transmitted directly to another organisation at the request of the individual.

ASW is not required to adopt or maintain processing systems which are technically compatible with other organisations.

In the event that the personal data concerns more than one individual, ASW will consider whether providing the information would prejudice the rights of any other individual.

ASW will respond to any requests for portability within one month.

Where the request is complex, or a number of requests have been received, the time frame can be extended by two months, ensuring that the individual is informed of the extension and the reasoning behind it within one month of the receipt of the request.

Where no action is being taken in response to a request, ASW will, without delay and at the latest within one month, explain to the individual the reason for this and will inform them of their right to complain to the supervisory authority and to a judicial remedy.

Right to object

ASW will inform individuals of their right to object at the first point of communication, and this information will be outlined in the privacy notice and explicitly brought to the attention of the data subject, ensuring that it is presented clearly and separately from any other information.

Individuals have the right to object to the following:

● Processing based on legitimate interests or the performance of a task in the public interest

● Direct marketing

● Processing for purposes of scientific or historical research and statistics.

Where personal data is processed for the performance of a legal task or legitimate interests:

● An individual’s grounds for objecting must relate to his or her particular situation.

● ASW will stop processing the individual’s personal data unless the processing is for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, or, where ASW can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing, which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the individual.

Where personal data is processed for direct marketing purposes:

● ASW will stop processing personal data for direct marketing purposes as soon as an objection is received.

● ASW cannot refuse an individual’s objection regarding data that is being processed for direct marketing purposes.

Where personal data is processed for research purposes:

● The individual must have grounds relating to their particular situation in order to exercise their right to object.

● Where the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a public interest task, ASW is not required to comply with an objection to the processing of the data.

Where the processing activity is outlined above, but is carried out online, ASW will offer a method for individuals to object online.

 

General provisions regarding data subject rights requests

Where a request is manifestly unfounded, excessive or repetitive, a reasonable fee might be charged.

All fees will be based on the administrative cost of providing the information.

All requests will be responded to without delay and at the latest, within one month of receipt.

In the event of numerous or complex requests, the period of compliance will be extended by a further two months. The individual will be informed of this extension, and will receive an explanation of why the extension is necessary, within one month of the receipt of the request.

Where a request is manifestly unfounded or excessive, ASW holds the right to refuse to respond to the request. The individual will be informed of this decision and the reasoning behind it, as well as their right to complain to the supervisory authority and to a judicial remedy, within one month of the refusal.

In the event that a large quantity of information is being processed about an individual, the school will ask the individual to specify the information the request is in relation to.
