3. PERSONAL DATA WHICH WE PROCESS
When providing services, as well as in business operations in general, and in situations where applicable regulations require us to do so, the Company collects and processes certain personal data that we need to fulfill legal obligations. We also process the personal data of our potential clients and persons with whom we cooperate when fulfilling our contractual obligations, as well as the personal data of our employees and persons applying for work at our Company. To the extent which is necessary to achieve a specific purpose, for example viewing the content of our services, the Company also collects personal data of visitors to Company websites (www.gaurus.hr
) and Company pages on social networks.
As part of Company operations, special attention is paid to the fact that all personal data that we need are collected to the minimum extent necessary to achieve the purpose, always in accordance with the purpose for which they were collected, as well as that these data are kept only for the time allowed or necessary, and that they are always adequately protected during processing and storage.
We especially note that the collection of certain personal data is essential for the execution of the services we provide to our clients, as well as for the compliance of our Company's actions with applicable regulations. Preventing the collection of these personal data may therefore prevent us from providing the aforementioned services, or may lead to our Company having to refuse to perform some of the services. In any such situation, we will warn the data subject of this possibility.
In certain situations when, in connection with the provision of services, we will have to contact or engage certain third parties according to the order and in agreement with the client (e.g. insurance companies, accountants, auditors, consultants, banks, lawyers, notaries public, tax advisors), such third parties could, due to the legal provisions that apply to their business operations, request from our Company the delivery of personal data that we have collected from our clients. We will, at our own discretion, provide the requested personal data to such third parties, taking into account all the requirements for the protection of such data, unless the client has expressly prohibited us from doing so in advance. Considering the above, if there are any third parties to whom our clients do not want us to provide personal data, it is necessary to inform us in advance.
As a rule, we collect all personal data directly from the data subject, but sometimes we also collect certain personal data from third parties, such as the bank where the data subject has an account or from the so-called data brokers such as Google and similar operators who arrange personal data processing themselves, whom the client addresses directly and independently of the business relationship with the Company.
We process and protect personal data that we collect from a person who is not a data subject to whom the personal data refers in the same way as those data which are collected directly from the data subject.
For the personal data of data subjects that we collect from third parties, whom the client addresses directly and independently of the business relationship with us, we will consider them accurate and lawfully processed by that person. We will not specifically check the above assumption, unless it is stated otherwise in this Policy for certain personal data or if there is a justified reason for this.
We specify the personal data that our Company collects and processes below.
A. PERSONAL DATA WE PROCESS AS PART OF SERVICE PROVISION AND BUSINESS OPERATIONS
In order to provide services, improve our services and carry out the education of our employees, and in order to ensure the general operations of the Company, we primarily process personal data of our business partners (users of our services, suppliers), but also of third parties such as bookkeepers, accountants, auditors, tax advisors, authorized translators, experts, lawyers, IT service providers, visitors to our premises, namely natural persons and directors, representatives, employees, associates and other persons who act on behalf of our partners who are legal entities (e.g. their shareholders, members, or persons associated with those persons).
The personal data that we process for these purposes refer to: name and last name, personal identification, registration or other appropriate number under which they are entered in official registers, telephone, mobile or fax numbers, e-mail addresses, IBAN and other bank account and transaction information, IP address as well as all other data that are relevant for the specific service we provide, the business relationship and/or payment for services performed. At the explicit request of the data subject, we can also process other data that we do not need to provide services, such as images or photographs.
The Company will process the IBAN and other data from the data subject’s bank accounts and transactions only and exclusively if and when it receives such a request from the data subject and if the data subject has previously instructed their bank to provide this information to the Company.
Given that the provision of our services requires the processing of specific data concerning bank accounts and transactions, i.e. the management of financial assets, and given that certain parts of the analysis of these data are carried out through automated data processing, we use the mentioned personal data in order to create a client profile, without which we cannot ensure the provision of our service. For the above reasons, the Company regularly assesses the efficiency of personal data protection measures and tests the vulnerability of the entire system, in order to ensure complete protection of all personal data.
It is especially noted that the Company, within the framework of its services, which includes profiling, does not make any decisions that would produce legal effects for the data subject or similarly affect them to a significant extent. The results of the services provided by the Company are always used exclusively by the data subject themselves, who decides on all further actions with these results, for example whether they will be submitted to a bank or other financial institution for further action. The company will deliver said data to banks or other financial institutions only and exclusively based on the express written instructions of the data subjects.
Bearing in mind that our services serve data subjects to increase personal responsibility in the management of personal finances and further communication with financial institutions, it is necessary that the Company provide its services at the highest level, which requires continuous training of the Company's employees. Such training is conducted exclusively on the Company's internal systems, and personal data are not shared, forwarded or disclosed to other persons outside the Company. Therefore, with the consent of the data subject, we use personal data even after the service has been performed for the purpose of training employees and improving our service in general.
As part of our business, we participate in numerous professional and business conferences, seminars and similar gatherings in order to continuously improve our professional knowledge and expand contacts in the business community. Also, due to the nature of our work, we communicate face-to-face and in writing with the members of the business community in order to establish, maintain and improve business contacts and relationships. During the aforementioned communication with the mentioned persons, we exchange business cards, e-mails, as well as written correspondence, which leads to the processing of certain personal data mentioned above.
We will ask every client or business partner to whom we want to send our promotional material or contact them as part of a marketing campaign of our Company for their consent to use their personal data for the stated purposes, or we will base the processing of personal data for the stated purpose on the legitimate interest of the Company.
All our services are intended exclusively for adults, i.e. people who are able to open bank accounts and manage their finances independently. For this reason, we can ask potential clients who use our services to declare or confirm that they are of legal age and that they are authorized to request the aforementioned services.
The company has also developed games that are intended for children or persons under the age of 16, which can be downloaded exclusively through Google Play and App Store platforms, in accordance with conditions set by said platforms. The company does not and will not offer games and/or other services directly to children or persons under the age of 16 on its websites.
B. PERSONAL DATA OF EMPLOYMENT CANDIDATES, WORKERS AND MEMBERS OF THE MANAGEMENT BOARD AND RELATED PERSONS
In order to fulfill its obligations arising from employment relationships, the Company, as an employer, processes the following personal data of employees: name and last name, address of permanent (or temporary) residence, personal identification number, place and date of birth, user names on internal servers, professional education and special exams and/or courses which are the prerequisite for performing the job (including certificates, licenses, etc.), jobs/functions they perform, telephone, mobile or fax numbers, e-mail addresses, information on identity documents (identity card, passport, etc.), information on marital status, information on the number and age of children and other persons supported by the worker (including first and last name, address of permanent (or temporary) residence, personal identification numbers and dates of birth of these persons), information on bank accounts, public and private documents issued by competent authorities relating to workers (certificates of health and pension insurance, etc.), salary data, salary supplements and all other data on workers the employer must keep. The Company will also collect the aforementioned data from the members of its management board with whom it has concluded employment contracts, while from those members of the management board with whom it has concluded service contracts (management contracts), it will collect only those of the aforementioned data that are necessary for the fulfillment of the Company's obligations arising from those contracts.
The Company also processes personal data of employees and members of the management board regarding their health status. These data are processed only and exclusively for the purpose of fulfilling the Company's legal obligations related to the determination of temporary or other incapacity for work and the payment of appropriate salary compensation or checking whether the health status of the specified persons meets the needs of the workplace/function they perform, and they will not be used for any other purpose.
Furthermore, if necessary, the Company processes the personal data of employees and members of the management board related to misdemeanor and/or criminal proceedings against the aforementioned persons, when these acts were committed in the performance of work/function in the Company or in connection with that work/function. These data are processed only and exclusively for the purpose of exercising and fulfilling the Company's rights and obligations arising from employment contracts/management contracts and possible recourse claims of the Company towards these persons, and they will not be used for any other purpose.
We process the personal data of the employee’s dependents and other related persons exclusively for the purpose of fulfilling our legal obligations in the field of labor law and for the purpose of calculating and paying benefits in addition to the salary that the employee receives according to special regulations or internal acts of the Company (gifts for children, Christmas bonus, etc.) and will not be used for any other purpose.
During the recruitment process in our Company, we collect CVs and other appropriate documentation (applications, registrations, references, diplomas, certificates, decisions, etc.) from candidates, which usually contain their personal data. We receive the aforementioned documentation from candidates on the basis of tenders/calls that we have advertised or through open applications, and we check the information contained in them in publicly available sources. Also, in order to help in the recruitment process (sorting and evaluation of candidates), the Company may, if necessary, hire third parties (employment agencies, external consultants) who will process the personal data of the candidates according to the Company's instructions.
The personal data of employment candidates that we process are the following: name and last name, address of permanent (or temporary) residence, photo, personal identification number, place and date of birth, information about current and previous employment, information about education, telephone, mobile or fax numbers, e-mail addresses, as well as all other data that are relevant for employment at a certain position, where we especially emphasize data on the candidate's health status in order to check whether the candidate's health status meets the needs of the position/function.
Any candidate who is not selected for the specific position for which they applied, but we consider them a candidate for employment in the Company in the future, will be asked to give consent to the processing of personal data for the purpose of future job vacancies, i.e. employment at another position in the Company.

11. SECURITY OF PERSONAL DATA
In order to fulfill our obligations in accordance with the applicable regulations on the protection of personal data, we implement technical and organizational measures to protect personal data against accidental loss, destruction, unauthorized access, unauthorized alteration, unauthorized publication and any other misuse.
We protect our computer system at all times with appropriate antivirus, antispam, antispyware and antimalware software, as well as a suitable firewall and regular operating system updates. In addition, whenever possible due to business processes, we use pseudonymization for additional protection of personal data.
We have also organized the protection of the computer system by using passwords on official computers that are used in business operations, and said passwords are themselves protected by a special system. Access to data is limited only to persons who are authorized to process certain data and only to IP addresses or devices that have been verified as part of the Company's internal network, and we regularly backup computer data systems that are encrypted.
In particular, it should be noted that the Company regularly assesses the efficiency of technical measures to protect personal data, as well as system vulnerability testing, which checks the resistance of protective measures, and all protective measures are adjusted, if necessary, based on the results of this testing.
We also implement physical measures to protect personal data, which include: protected rooms with limited access, use of security alarms and locks, availability of fire extinguishers with instructions for use in the immediate vicinity of the mentioned rooms.
All employees of the Company have been informed and educated about the provisions of applicable regulations on the protection of personal data and about the obligation to comply with them and the manner of their implementation. All employees of the Company have assumed the obligation to preserve the confidentiality of all the data they process.
12. FURTHER PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA FOR OTHER PURPOSES
In the event that there is a need to process personal data for another purpose, different from one of the purposes stated in this Policy, before the start of such processing, the Company will provide the data subjects with information about the other purpose and all other necessary information, and if this is required in accordance with the relevant legal regulations, the Company will request consent for the processing of personal data for another purpose.
Please note that it is possible to differentiate the content of such a new notification in relation to this Policy, taking into account possible changes in legal regulations and business practices over time.
13. BREACHES, COMPLAINTS AND INQUIRIES
Personal data breach means a security breach that results in the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure of or access TO personal data that has been transmitted, stored or otherwise processed.
In the event of a personal data breach, the Company will assess the risk to personal data that has arisen as a result of the breach without undue delay, and if this is feasible no later than 72 hours after becoming aware of the breach, and notify AZOP of the personal data breach, unless the risk assessment has determined that it is unlikely that the personal data breach will cause a risk to the rights and freedoms of the data subject. If the AZOP reporting is not done within 72 hours, the reasons for the delay will be explained.
When assessing the existence and level of risk, the Company will take into account the type of breach (loss or unauthorized access and/or copying of data), the type, sensitivity and amount of data affected by the breach, especially whether the breach may lead to identity theft, how easy it is to identify the subject through the data included in the breach, how severe the consequences of the breach are for the data subject, especially depending on whether it is sensitive data and the manner of the breach which may be accidental by the controller/processor of the processing or intentional by a third party, as well as the characteristics of the data subjects and the number affected by the breach, as well as on the characteristics of the Company, as the controller. When assessing the risk, the Company will be guided by the rules of the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA) on assessments of the severity of personal data breaches.
In the event of a personal data breach which, according to the conducted risk analysis, is likely to cause a high risk to the rights and freedoms of the data subject, the Company will also notify the data subject of the personal data breach, unless:
• appropriate technical and organizational protection measures have been implemented, and these measures have been applied to personal data affected by the breach, especially those that render the personal data unintelligible to any person not authorized to access them, such as encryption,
• subsequent measures have been taken to ensure that it is no longer likely that a high risk to the rights and freedoms of data subjects is no longer likely to materialize (the Company managed to take actions that prevented the use and further sharing of personal data),
• notifying the data subject would involve disproportionate effort (e.g. the data subject’s contacts were lost due to the breach, and this was made public or communicated to the data subject). In this case, public notification or a similar measure will be necessary to inform the data subjects in an equally effective way.
When necessary, the notification of the breach will be delivered to the data subjects by direct communication (e-mail, letter), separated from other notifications, or if this is not possible due to the breach, a public notification or a similar measure will be carried out, thereby informing the data subjects in an equally effective way.
The Company will document all personal data breaches, including the facts related to the personal data breach, its consequences and measures taken to remedy the damage.
