Personal Data Protection

For what purpose will personal data be processed?

The intermediary processes your personal data in accordance with Regulation (EU) No. 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council. 2016/679 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, repealing Directive 95/46 / EC (General Data Protection Regulation) and Act no. 18/2018 Coll. on the protection of personal data and on the amendment of certain laws. Your personal data will be processed by the Intermediary to the extent necessary to fulfill the obligations of the Intermediary arising from the Agreement. Without the provision of personal data, it is not possible to fulfill the obligations of the Intermediary arising from the Agreement. The legal basis for the processing of your data will be a concluded Agreement. In connection with the main purpose of the processing, personal data may be processed for other purposes to the extent required by law on the Intermediary (eg obligations in the field of protection against money laundering or obligations arising from the Accounting Act). In these cases, the legal basis for the processing of personal data is the fulfillment of the legal obligations of the Intermediary.

According to Act No. 297/2008 Coll. on Protection against Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing and on Amendments to Certain Acts, the Intermediary is obliged to process personal data for the purposes of preventing and detecting money laundering and terrorist financing, which includes, in particular: a) client identification; b) identification of the end-user of the benefits, c) identification of the ownership and management structure of the client who is a legal entity, d) obtaining information on the purpose and intended nature of the business or business relationship, e) determining whether the client or end-user of the client's benefits is politically an exposed person or a sanctioned person, f) ascertaining the origin of funds or assets in a business or business relationship, g) ascertaining whether the client is acting in his own name, carrying out ongoing monitoring of the business relationship.

To whom can personal data be passed?

In connection with the fulfillment of the objectives of the Agreement, your personal data may be provided to the necessary extent to third parties,

for example:

- the real estate broker of the Intermediary,

- a lawyer for the purpose of preparing or assessing the contractual documentation (for example, for the preparation of a purchase contract), or for carrying out the authorization of a contract,

- a notary in order to prepare a notarial record or a bank in order to prepare a binding,

- a financial intermediary for the purpose of arranging a loan for the acquisition of immovable property,

- a cooperating real estate agency representing the other party to the joint commercial case,

- to the relevant district office (cadastral department) when submitting a proposal for registration in the real estate cadastre.

How long will personal data be kept?

The data will be kept for the period required by law or necessary for the exercise of liability claims (eg Act No. 297/2008 Coll. Requires the retention of documentation for a period of five years from the termination of the contractual relationship).
