Lawful Basis for Processing

We process your personal data on the following lawful basis and for the following reasons:

  • Your consent

We rely on your consent when we use your personal data for optimizing and enhancing the operation of our website and developing new features and services (including when it is collected as a part of the aggregated data). We also rely on this legal basis when we respond to you upon you have contacted us, for example regarding open vacancies or cooperation opportunities as well as when you attend our events.

You have a right to withdraw consent to the processing of your personal data. You may enjoy this right at any time you wish. Please remember, that the withdrawal of consent does not mean that the processing before the withdrawal is considered thus illegal. Please also take into account that if you have withdrawn your consent to the processing of your personal data, we may be limited in responding to you and/or providing you with our services and job opportunities.

  • Compliance with our legal obligations

We rely on this legal basis to identify you and verify your identity (when relevant) or to help prevent and detect fraud against you or us, to protect the security of systems and data, or for disclosures and other activities necessary to comply with legal and regulatory obligations that apply to our business, (e.g., to record and demonstrate evidence of your consents, to retain HR and recruitment data as well as data related to contract execution).

All applicable laws depending on the relationship between you and us may affect the scope of personal data we collect, the ways we process your personal data, our ability to keep the confidentiality of your data and avoid their disclosure, duration of the planned retention, etc.

  • For the performance of a contract with you or to take steps at your request before entering a contract

We rely on this legal basis to provide certain services to you or to engage in employment or other contractual relations with you or the company that you represent.

  • To perform a task carried out in the public interest

We rely on this legal basis to report to the police or other competent enforcement agencies in case we discover fraud or any other violations of the applicable law or suspicious behavior or actions committed by you during your interaction with us, as well as in other cases when the disclosure of your personal data is required.

  • For our legitimate interests or those of a third party

We rely on this legal basis to contact you regarding potential cooperation between you and/or the company you represent with us; to inform you about our open vacancies; to enable or administer our business (quality control, consolidated reporting, customer service), transfer of ownership and so on.

When we receive your explicit consent, we may run automated decision-making devices or software including those based on all the data aggregated, and may use personal information we collect about you for profiling.

You, as a Data Subject, have the right to:

  • Request information about whether we hold personal information about you, and, if so, what that information is and why we are holding or using it.
  • Request access to your personal information. This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
  • Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.
  • Request the erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
  • Object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation that makes you want to object to processing on this ground.
  • Object to automated decision-making, including profiling, that is not to be the subject of any automated decision-making by us using your personal information or profiling of you.
  • Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example, if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
  • Request transfer of your personal information in an electronic and structured form to you or to another party. This enables you to take your data from us in an electronically useable format and to be able to transfer your data to another party in an electronically useable format.
  • Withdraw consent. You have the right to withdraw your consent to the collection, processing, and transfer of your personal information for a specific purpose at any time. Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to, unless we have another legitimate basis for doing so in law. The withdrawal of consent will not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent prior to its withdrawal.

If you want to exercise any of these rights, please contact us at [email protected]. The request response time is one month.

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information or to exercise any of your other rights. This is another security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.

Please exercise your rights wisely and note that abuse of rights may entail your liability.

Safety of Your Personal Data

We make sure to use appropriate technical and physical security measures to protect your personal data which is transmitted, stored, or otherwise processed by us, from accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure of, or access.

Your personal data is securely stored by Chudovo on its servers and on the servers of the cloud-based database management services that Chudovo engages in, such as WP Engine.

We will not retain your data for longer than it is necessary to fulfill the purpose it is being processed for. To determine the appropriate retention period, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the purposes for which we process it, and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means. We must also consider periods for which we might need to retain personal data in order to meet our legal obligations or to deal with complaints, and queries, and to protect our legal rights in the event of a claim being made. When we no longer need your personal data, we will securely delete or destroy it.

Data transfer

Since Chudovo is an international organization, we may disclose your data by transmission, dissemination, or otherwise making it available. To the extent permitted by applicable data protection laws, your personal data may be transferred between various locations of Chudovo and thus processed in the European Economic Area and outside of it, depending on the purpose of processing. Such transfer and processing are possible only as reasonably necessary for the purposes set out in this Policy and within the scope of the legitimate interest of Chudovo. In those cases, we will comply with applicable laws designed to ensure the privacy of your personal data.

Under data protection laws, we can transfer your personal data to third countries on the basis of an adequacy regulation or, where such is not available, under legally approved standard data protection clauses recognized or issued under the applicable data protection laws. In the event, that we cannot or choose not to continue to rely on either of those mechanisms at any time we will not transfer your personal data to third countries unless we can do so on the basis of an alternative mechanism permitted by data protection authorities.
