We shall have a reason to use your personal data when we are in the process of entering into a contract with you or performing a contractual obligation. For example, when you use any of our services or apply to work with us.
We shall have a reason to use your personal data when processing is necessary to protect the interests of life and health. For example, if there is a case where we need to contact someone unexpectedly or share his or her data with the Casualty department of a hospital.
We shall have a reason to use your personal data when it is reasonably necessary for us (or a third party) to do so in our (or a third party's) legitimate interest (provided that the purpose for which the data is used is fair and does not have an undue influence on your rights). We believe that our legitimate interests shall include all the day-to-day activities that ABC Global EOOD performs with personal information. We shall rely on legitimate interests only when we believe that any potential impact on you (positive or negative), its degree of privacy impact, and your rights under personal data protection laws, have no precedence over our (or a third party's) interest in using your information in this way.
When using sensitive personal data, we shall require additional legal grounds in accordance with the privacy legislation, so we shall do so based on your explicit consent, or given via other means at our disposal for the use of this type of information (for example, if you have made it publicly available, if we have to process it for employment, social security or social protection purposes, for your vital interests or, in some cases, if it is in the public interest to be done).
ABC Global EOOD shall apply specific criteria to determine how long to store your data, based on legal and operational considerations, taking into account the guidelines from the Personal Data Protection Commission. The principle shall be that we shall keep it for a period not longer than it's necessary for the purposes for which the data was collected.
We shall store the personal data we collect from you when we have an on-going legitimate business need for that (for example, to provide you with a service you have requested or to comply with the applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements). When we do not have an on-going legitimate business need to process your personal data, we shall delete or anonymize it, and if this is not possible (for example, because your personal data has been stored in backups), then we shall securely store your personal data and shall isolate it from any other processing until deletion is possible.
We shall only use your data for the purposes for which we have collected it. Under no circumstances shall we sell your personal data. Except as agreed, we shall not share your personal data with any third party for their purposes, and you shall not receive marketing communications from any other organization as a result of you sharing your data with us.

2.When we are obliged by law: We shall fulfil such requests when disclosure of data is mandatory by law.

In accordance with national law and regulatory requirements, we shall share information related to employment contracts with the National Revenue Agency.
Personal data contained in the company registration documents shall be shared with the Commercial Register of the Registry Agency. Upon opening company bank accounts, personal data shall be shared with the bank, at the choice of the person(s) concerned.
When using external data processing companies, we shall perform a preliminary, thorough review of these companies and shall conclude contracts that set out our expectations and requirements, especially with regard to how they manage the personal data they collect or have access to.
In some cases, we may decide to use the services of a supplier outside the European Economic Area (EEA), which shall mean that your personal data shall be transmitted, processed and stored outside the EEA. You should be aware that, in general, the legal protection of personal data in non-EEA countries may not be equivalent to the level of protection granted within the EEA. However, we shall take actions to introduce appropriate measures to protect your personal data when processed by the provider, such as using the standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission. By providing us with your personal data, you hereby agree to this transmission, storage or processing outside of the EEA.

If we collect and process your personal data on the basis of your consent, you shall have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. The withdrawal of your consent shall not affect the lawfulness of the consent-based processing prior to your withdrawal or the processing of your personal data on any other legal grounds.
