The Ministry processes the personal data of affected persons while taking into account the obligations stemming from valid legislation and its specific tasks, while an affected person is every individual to whom the personal data is related.
What personal data does the Ministry process?
The scope of the personal data processed results from the relevant legislation or is determined by the purpose of their processing. The Ministry only processes personal data whose processing is necessary to fulfill the purpose of the processing as such.
What are the legal reasons for processing personal data?
The Ministry processes personal data on a legal basis, which is:
If the processing of personal data is a legal requirement, i.e. if the personal data is processed according to special regulations, the failure to provide such personal data may result in the inability to carry out the legal tasks and duties of the Ministry.
What is the retention period of personal data?
Personal data is stored for the time necessary to achieve the purpose set by the legal requirements, the duration of the consent or until its withdrawal, or for the time necessary to fulfill the contractual conditions.
If the processed personal data is not part of the registry record, personal data will be deleted immediately after fulfilling the purpose of the processing. If the processed personal data is part of the registry record, the liquidation shall proceed in accordance with a special internal regulation of the Ministry (the Registry Code).
To whom can personal information be provided?
Personal data processed by the Ministry may be provided to recipients who have the status of independent operators and to whom the Ministry is obliged or authorized to provide such data pursuant to a special regulation, an international treaty binding on the Slovak Republic or the consent of the data subject/individual.
What are the requirements for transferring personal data to a third country (outside the EU)?
The transfer of personal data between the Ministry (or other body of the SR) and the embassy of the Slovak Republic abroad is not considered as a cross-border transfer to a third country. Likewise, a transfer within the institutions and bodies of the Member States of the European Union is not considered as a transfer to a third country. Such transfer is not restricted or prohibited. Subject to certain conditions, the Ministry may transfer personal data to another international organization. The case of transfer of personal data outside the EU is allowed upon the fulfillment of the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation.
What are the rights of affected persons?
How can the affected subject exercise their rights?
The person concerned may exercise his rights by making an application, namely:
The Ministry may ask the person concerned to provide additional information necessary to verify his identity.
Applications shall be handled free of charge, unless the applications are demonstrably unfounded or excessive, in particular because of their recurrent nature, in which case the Ministry may charge a reasonable fee or refuse to act upon the application.
The Ministry shall inform the person concerned of the manner of processing the application without delay, but no later than within one month from the date of receipt of the application. In justified cases, this period may be extended by two months, even repeatedly. The person concerned shall be informed of an extension of the time limit together with the reasons for the missed time limit. The Ministry shall respond to the request by a written letter or electronic form, usually by the same means as the request was received.
