  • Has SONET established and announced a specific period of keeping a certain type of data? If it has, it will definitely not exceed it ever.
  • Did you give consent to an extension of the period of keeping information? If you did, SONET will keep the data in accordance with your consent.
  • Do any legal, contractual or similar obligations to keep data apply to SONET? Examples include laws regulating compulsory keeping of data, or government decrees to keep data related to investigations of criminal offences or data that have to be kept for the purposes of lawsuits.

Right of access means that at any time you may request SONET for confirmation whether or not the personal data concerning you are being processed, and, where that is the case, for what purposes, to what extent, to whom they are disclosed, how long they will be processed by SONET, whether or not you have the right to request rectification, erasure or restriction of processing or the right to object, from what source SONET obtained your personal data, and whether or not automated decision-making, including profiling, is carried out on the basis of processing your personal data. You also have the right to obtain a copy of your personal data.

Right to rectification means that at any time you may request SONET to rectify or complete your personal data if they are inaccurate or incomplete.

Right to erasure means that SONET has to erase your personal data if (i) they are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed, (ii) their processing is unlawful, (iii) you object to their processing and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, (iv) SONET is obliged to do so for compliance with a legal obligation, or (v) you withdraw your consent regarding the personal data to the processing of which you gave your consent.
