What are the rights of data subjects? ZSZA emphasises the respect of your rights. As a data subject, you have the following rights:
Right to information You have the right to information about your personal data processing. For this purpose, appropriate measures are taken to ensure that the information is properly provided to you. The Controller fulfils the information responsibility via this document that shall be permanently published at www.zsza.sk.
Right to withdraw the consent granted If you have given us your consent to process your personal data, you may withdraw it at any time. Withdrawal of consent does not affect the legality of processing based on consent prior to its withdrawal. Consent is granted e. g. when posting photos.
Right of access to data Upon request, the Controller shall issue a confirmation of the processing of your personal data, as well as information about the purposes of its processing, about the categories of personal data processed, the categories of recipients, the period of data storage, the source of the personal data unless the personal data were obtained directly from you, and about your other rights you may exercise. At your request, ZSZA shall also provide you with a copy of your personal data, which it processes, free of charge. We shall charge a reasonable administrative fee for any additional copies. We will inform you about the fee in advance.
Right to rectification You have the right for your correct and up-to-date data to be processed. ZSZA updates the data at your request, or after verifying the data as a part of communication with you.
Right to erasure (“right to be forgotten”) Under certain terms, you have the right to have your personal data erased, particularly if the personal data are no longer required for the purposes for which they were obtained or otherwise processed; if you have withdrawn your consent on the basis of which the processing is carried out; if you object to a legitimate interest in data processing by ZSZA, or if personal data was processed illegally. Upon consideration of the legal terms, we shall comply with your request to erase your personal data, or we shall inform you why we cannot delete the personal data.
Right to restriction of processing Under certain terms, you have the right to limit the processing of your personal data by ZSZA, particularly if you challenge the accuracy of personal data during the period allowing ZSZA to verify the accuracy of personal data; if the personal data processing is illegal and you object to the erasure of personal data and request a restriction of their processing instead; if ZSZA no longer requires the data for processing purposes, but you required them to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; if you objected to the legitimate interests of ZSZA, ZSZA shall limit its processing until the legitimate interests are substantiated. After review of the legal terms, we shall comply with your request to limit the personal data processing, or we shall inform you why we cannot comply with the request.
Right to data portability The right to transmit personal data to another controller shall be exercised by ZSZA exclusively at your request, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, if the processing of personal data is based on your consent or on the fulfilment of a contract with ZSZA, and if such processing is carried out by automated means that enable such transmission.
The right to object Under certain terms, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data carried out on the basis of the legitimate interest of ZSZA. ZSZA shall not further process the personal data, unless it demonstrates, in a specific case, the required legitimate reasons for the processing.
Automatic individual decision-making, including profiling ZSZA does not perform automated individual decision-making or profiling.

You may file a motion to initiate proceedings at the relevant court.

Application for Exercise of the Rights of Data Subjects is available HERE.
We shall lodge and administer each request without undue delay, within one month at the latest. Within this period, we shall keep you informed you about the measures we will have taken based on your application. The above deadline may be extended, if necessary, by an additional period of two months, taking into account the complexity of the applications and their number. We shall inform you about the extension of the deadline within one month of the submission of the application, together with the reasoning for missing the deadline.
Notification of the method of processing the application shall be delivered in the same manner as the application was submitted, unless you request a different method. If the notification contains personal data of a specific category, we shall send the notification exclusively by post to our own hands.
We process your applications free of charge. Nonetheless, in the event the application is evidently unfounded or repeated, in the connection with the processing we may:
charge a reasonable fee taking into account administrative cost;
deny further action.
How are personal data protected at ZSZA? ZSZA consistently ensures personal data protection. We have therefore adopted appropriate technical, organisational and security measures taking into account imminent risk, the nature of the processing, cutting edge knowledge and the cost of adopting the measures.
ZSZA protects your personal data against misuse by appropriate and available means. In doing so, we primarily store personal data on the venue, in places, settings or systems to which access is limited to, pre-determined for and continuously controlled by a group of persons.
ZSZA carries out an annual review of the procedures for uploading and processing personal data. We make a brief record of the review, the so-called review report. If some procedures prove obsolete, redundant or fail the review, we apply an instant remedy.
ZSZA instantly solves every security incident related to personal data. If it is likely that the incident may entail a high risk for your rights and liberties, we shall always inform you about it and about the remedial measures we have applied. Each incident is more likely to be recorded. The ZSZA reports each serious incident to the Office for Personal Data Protection of the Slovak Republic.
