§ Data Processing
If you do not provide your identification information as needed to perform the requested service
The collection and processing of your personal data is necessary to fulfill the activity requests as well as to perform the Service and/or supply the requested Product. Should you fail to provide your personal data as expressly required, the Data Controller will not be able to carry out the processing associated with managing the requested services and/or the contract and the Services/Products associated with them, nor fulfill the operations dependent on them.
If you do not provide the consent for processing personal data for the business promotion activities on Services/Products that are different from those purchased
When you do not give your consent to the processing of your personal data for these purposes, the processing will not be implemented for these specific purposes, but it will not affect the performance of the requested services or those for which you have already given your consent, if requested. In the event you have given consent and later withdraw it or oppose the processing for business promotional activities, your data will no longer be processed for these activities, although this will not create negative effects or consequences for you or the services requested.
Where we process your data
Your data is stored in hard copy, electronic and remote archives located in countries where the EU Regulation No. 679/2016 is applicable.
How we process your data (Article 32, EU Regulation No. 679/2016)
The Data Controller makes use of appropriate security measures to preserve the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your personal data, and requires the same security measures from third party providers and the Data Processors.
How long your data are stored (Article 13, paragraph 2a, EU Regulation No. 679/2016)
Unless you explicitly express your own desire to remove it, your personal data will be stored until required for the due purposes for which it was collected.
In particular, the data will be stored for no longer than a maximum period of 36 (thirty six) months of inactivity, that is, within this time period, there have not been any kind of Interaction or Service and/or Product purchased.
For data provided to the Data Controller for the purposes of business promotion for services other than those you have already purchased, for which you initially gave consent, it will be stored for 36 (thirty six) months, except when such consent is withdrawn.
It is also important to add that, should the user forward to MatcHub personal data that has not been requested or that is unnecessary for the purposes of performing the activities requested, or for the performance of services strictly connected thereto, MatcHub cannot be considered controller of this data and will proceed to delete it as soon as possible.
Regardless of your determination to remove the data, your personal information will in any case be stored to comply with obligations (e.g. tax and accounting purposes) which may continue even after termination of the contract; for these purposes, the Data Controller shall retain only the data necessary to complete these activities.
For those cases where the rights arising from the contract and/or registration are used in the courts, your personal data, exclusively required for these purposes, shall be processed for the time necessary to complete them.
§ Rights of the person concerned
You have the right to obtain the following from the Data Controller (Articles 15-20, EU Regulation No. 679/2016):
1. a) Confirmation on whether your personal data is being processed and if so, to obtain access to your personal data and the following information:
2. The categories of personal data in question;
3. The purposes of the processing;
4. The recipients or categories of recipients that have received or will receive your personal data, in particular if these recipients are in third party countries or are international organizations;
5. When possible, the anticipated storage period of your personal data or, if not possible, the criteria used to determine this period;
6. Whether you have the right to ask the Data Controller to correct or delete your personal data or the limits on processing your personal data or to oppose the processing of the data;
7. The right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority;
8. In the event the data is not collected from you, all of the information available regarding its origin;
9. Whether there is an automated decision process, including profiling, and, at least in these cases, significant information on the logic used, as well as the importance and consequences to you for this processing;
10. The suitable guarantees provided by the third party country (outside EU) or international organization to protect any transferred data.
11. b) The right to obtain a copy of the personal data processed, again given that this right does not affect the rights and freedoms of others; for extra copies requested by you, the Data Controller may assign a reasonable fee based on administrative costs.
12. c) The right to edit any of your incorrect personal data from the Data Controller without unjustified delay.
13. d) The right to have your personal data deleted by the Data Controller without unjustified delay, if there are the reasons outlined in the EU Regulation No. 679/2016, Art. 17, including, for example, if the data is no longer needed for processing or if the data is considered illegal, and again, if there are no conditions outlined by law; and in any case, if the processing is not justified by another equally legitimate reason.
14. e) The right to obtain limits on the processing from the Data Controller, in those cases outlined in Art. 18 of the EU Regulation No. 679/2016, for example where you have disputed the correctness, for the period necessary for the Data Controller to verify the data’s accuracy. You must be notified, within an appropriate time, even when the suspension period has passed or the cause of limiting the processing has been eliminated, and therefore the limitation itself has been withdrawn.
15. f) The right to obtain information from the Data Controller on the recipients who have received the requests for any corrections or deletions or limits on the processing implemented, except when this is impossible or would create a disproportionate effort.
16. g) The right to receive your personal data in a structured format, commonly used and readable by automatic devices as well as the right to forward this data to another Data Controller without obstruction from the original Data Controller, in those cases outlined by Art. 20 of the EU Regulation No. 679/2016, and the right to obtain direct forwarding of your personal data from one Data Controller to another, if technically feasible.
For further information and to send your request, contact the Data Controller at firstname.lastname@example.org.

For any reason associated with your particular situation, you may at any time oppose the processing of your own personal data if it is based on legitimate reasons or if it is done for business promotional activities, by sending a request to the Data Controller at email@example.com. You have the right to have your own personal data deleted if the Data Controller has no legitimate reason prevailing over such request, and in any case, where you have opposed the processing for business promotional activities.
