“Personal data” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (“data subject”); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
“Processing” means any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
“Sensitive personal data” means any personal data which contain information on racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs or trade union membership, physical and mental health, genetic and biometric data, data on sexual life or sexual orientation, and information on criminal convictions and offenses. Because of the nature of sensitive personal data, the legislation is much more rigorous about how these data should be processed. The Company processes sensitive personal data only in accordance with the law.

“Controller” means the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.

8. About Your Rights
One of the basic principles of the GDPR is the protection of the rights of natural persons regarding the processing of their personal data. In this context, you have a set of rights related with your personal data that happen to be processed by “MARKAR SINGLE-MEMBER SA”, namely:
- Right to object: this right allows you to object to the processing of your personal data, especially when the processing is done for purposes of a legitimate interest of the “MARKAR SINGLE-MEMBER SA”. If the processing is done for the purpose of serving its legitimate interests, “MARKAR SINGLE-MEMBER SA” will comply with your objection and terminate such processing unless “MARKAR SINGLE-MEMBER SA” can demonstrate absolute and legal reasons for processing, that prevail over your interests, rights and freedoms or such processing is done to establish, exercise or support legal claims of “MARKAR SINGLE-MEMBER SA”.
- Right to withdraw consent: If your personal data processing is based on prior consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time and “MARKAR SINGLE-MEMBER SA” will cease the specific activity you previously consented to, unless there is an alternative legal basis justifying the continuation of your data processing for that purpose, in which case you will be informed.
- Rights to access and rectification and erasure: You can request at any time to be informed about your personal data that “MARKAR SINGLE-MEMBER SA” holds about you and request the editing, rectification, updating or erasure of that information. We might ask you additional information so as to process your request. However, since we give you access to the information we hold about you, this will be done without financial costs for you, unless your claim is “clearly unfounded or illegitimate”. Since we have the legal right to deny your request, in the event of such denial, we will inform you on the specific reasons for such denial.
- Right to restriction of processing: In some cases, you have the right to “block” or withdraw further use of your personal data. In practice this means that we can store your data, but we will not be able to process it further, unless such processing happens with your consent, or such processing is necessary either to establish, exercise or support legal claims of “MARKAR SINGLE-MEMBER SA”, or for the protection of the rights of another person or also for reasons of public interest. We keep lists of people who have requested to “block” the further use of their personal data to make sure that the restriction will be respected in the future.
- Right to portability: You have the right to transfer your personal data to other controllers. In practice this means that you have the ability to transfer the information we hold about you to any third party. In order to implement this right, we will provide you the data in a structured, commonly used and machine readable format so that you can transfer your data to another person responsible for processing. Alternatively, we can also send the data directly in your name. The right to portability applies to (a) data we process automatically (i.e. without human intervention), (b) for personal data provided by you (c) for personal data which is processed based on your consent, or whose processing is necessary for the execution of a contract.
- Right to lodge a complaint with competent authorities: You have the right to file a complaint to the competent supervisory authority, which for Greece is the Personal Data Protection Authority.
