j)      Third party Third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.

The data controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is granted by the European legislator or other legislators in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject to.   If the storage purpose is not applicable, or if a storage period prescribed by the European legislator or another competent legislator expires, the personal data are routinely blocked or erased in accordance with legal requirements.  

6. Rights of the data subject 

a) Right of confirmation   Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller the confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning him or her are being processed. If a data subject wishes to avail herself/himself of this right of confirmation, she or he may, at any time, contact our Data Protection Officer or another employee of the controller.

b) Right of access   Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller information about her or his personal data stored at any time and a copy of this information.  We may make a small charge for this service.  Furthermore, the European directives and regulations grant the data subject access to the following information:
 
c) Right to rectification    Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning him or her. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, the data subject shall have the right to have incomplete personal data completed, including by means of providing a supplementary statement.   If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to rectification, he or she may, at any time, contact our Data Protection Officer or another employee of the controller.  

d) Right to erasure (Right to be forgotten)    Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning her or him without undue delay, and the controller shall have the obligation to erase personal data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies, as long as the processing is not necessary:   The personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.   The data subject withdraws consent to which the processing is based according to point (a) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR, or point (a) of Article 9(2) of the GDPR, and where there is no other legal ground for the processing.   The data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) of the GDPR.   The personal data have been unlawfully processed.   The personal data must be erased for compliance with a legal obligation in Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.   The personal data have been collected in relation to the offer of information society services referred to in Article 8(1) of the GDPR.   If one of the aforementioned reasons applies, and a data subject wishes to request the erasure of personal data stored by Harris Daf, he or she may at any time contact our Data Protection Officer or another employee of the controller. The Data Protection Officer of Harris Daf  or another employee shall promptly ensure that the erasure request is complied with immediately.   Where the controller has made personal data public and is obliged pursuant to Article 17(1) to erase the personal data, the controller, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform other controllers processing the personal data that the data subject has requested erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of, those personal data, as far as processing is not required. The Data Protection Officer of Harris Daf or another employee will arrange the necessary measures in individual cases.  

e) Right of restriction of processing   Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller restriction of processing where one of the following applies:
 The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.   The processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the erasure of the personal data and requests instead the restriction of their use instead.
  The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required by the data subject for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.   The data subject has objected to processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.   If one of the aforementioned conditions is met, and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of the processing of personal data stored by Harris Daf, he or she may at any time contact our Data Protection Officer or another employee of the controller. The Data Protection Officer of Harris Daf or another employee will arrange the restriction of the processing.  

f) Right to data portability   Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator, to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which was provided to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machinereadable format. 
 
g) Right to object   Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to object, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, at any time, to processing of personal data concerning him or her, which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.   Harris Daf shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.   If Harris Daf processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her for such marketing. This applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to Harris Daf to the processing for direct marketing purposes, Harris Daf will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.   

h) Right to withdraw data protection consent    Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to withdraw his or her consent to processing of his or her personal data at any time.   If the data subject wishes to exercise the right to withdraw the consent, he or she may at any time directly contact our Data Protection Officer of Harris Daf or another employee of the controller.  
 
 
7. Data protection for applications and the application procedures  

The data controller shall collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of the processing of the application procedure. The processing may also be carried out electronically. This is the case, in particular, if an applicant submits corresponding application documents by email or by means of a web form on the website to the controller. If the data controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the submitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with legal requirements.   If an employment contract is not concluded then the data will be held in accordance with Section 10.
 
8. Legal basis for the processing   

Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out precontractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our products or services. Is our company subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR.   In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR.   

9. The legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party  

Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR our legitimate interest is to carry out our business in favour of the well-being of all our employees and the shareholders.  Harris Daf will not share your information for marketing purposes within individuals or organisations outside of Daf unless you have consented. 
 
10. Period for which the personal data will be stored  

The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfilment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.  

11. Data transfers
