This processing is based on our legitimate interest that ensures the identification of potential compliance risks that could emerge from a possible relationship with these third parties
We only transfer your data restrictively.
For reaching the purposes described above, OMV Petrom uses the services of various contractors.
Some of them are controllers on their own, other contractors have the quality of processors in connection with your personal data.
Other contractors are third parties who are not intended to process the data but may have access to it upon fulfilling their tasks or interacting with OMV Petrom, such as technical maintenance companies, financial or legal auditors.
Thus, the personal data indicated above may also be made available or submitted to third parties in the following situations:
(i) public authorities, auditors or institutions competent to exercise inspections on the OMV Petrom’s business or assets, which ask OMV Petrom to provide information, by virtue of the latter’ s legal obligations to comply with a legal requirement or to protect the rights and assets of our company or other entities or people, such as courts of law;
(ii) to third parties acquisitors, insofar the business of the company would be (totally or partially) transferred and the data subjects’ data would be part of the assets representing the object of the transaction.
Further on, for the processing purposes set out above, we may share your personal data with the companies from the OMV /Petrom group, companies which will be under the OMV Petrom’ s instructions in what concerns the processing of your personal data.
Hence, with a view to details, in order to achieve the above under point III stated purposes your data may be shared with the following types of recipients:
• Technical maintenance companies;
• Auditors and inspectors;
• Authorities and courts;
• Analysts and search engine operators;
• Call centre service providers;
• Advertising and social media agencies;
• Operator of social media platforms;
• Web analytics services;
• Provider of surveys or market surveys / customer inquiries;
• Acquirer of parts of the business to OMV if your data is part of the acquired assets;
• OMV Group companies;
• Petrol station partners
As part of the data processing described above, transmission of personal data to recipients in countries outside the European Union (so-called third countries) may take place. We only transfer your data to (i) countries for which the EU Commission has determined that they provide an adequate level of data protection or (ii) if we take measures to ensure that the respective recipient provides an adequate level of data protection (in particular by concluding EU Standard Contractual Clauses).
We would like to expressly point out that as of July 16, 2020, due to a legal dispute between a private individual and the Irish supervisory authority, the so-called "Privacy Shield", an adequacy decision of the EU Commission pursuant to Art 45 GDPR, which confirmed an adequate level of data protection to the USA under certain circumstances, is no longer valid.
The Privacy Shield is therefore no longer a valid legal basis for the transfer of personal data to the USA!
What can the transfer of personal data to the USA mean for you as a user and what are the risks in this context?
Risks for you as a user are in any case the powers of the U.S. intelligence services and the legal situation in the U.S., which currently, according to the ECJ, no longer ensure an adequate level of data protection. Among others, these are the following:
• Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) provides no restrictions on the surveillance activities of the intelligence services and no safeguards for non-U.S. citizens.
• Presidential Policy Directive 28 (PPD-28) does not give data subjects effective remedies against actions taken by U.S. authorities and does not provide for barriers to ensuring proportionate measures.
• The Ombudsman provided for in the Privacy Shield does not have sufficient independence from the executive branch; he cannot issue binding orders against the intelligence agencies.
Legally compliant transfer of data to the USA based on the standard contractual clauses?
The standard contractual clauses adopted by the Commission in 2021 (2021/914 from 4. June 2021), Art. 46 (2) c GDPR, are still valid under the condition that the level of protection for personal data equivalent to that in the European Union is ensured. Thus, not only the contractual relationships with our service providers are decisive, but the possibility of access to the data by authorities in the USA and the legal system there must also be evaluated.
What measures do we take to ensure that data transfers to the USA are legally compliant?
Wherever US providers offer the option, we choose to process data on EU servers. This should technically ensure that the data is located within the European Union and that access by US authorities is not possible.
For the further use of US tools, we take the following measures:
With US providers we make every effort to conclude the mentioned EU standard contractual clauses and to demand additional guarantees.
We process your personal data as long as reasonably necessary to achieve the above mentioned purposes and in addition, in accordance with the legal obligations for storage and documentation, which result, among others, from the relevant laws or for asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.
Generally, your data will be deleted after withdrawing your consent or successfully claiming rights in respect to the processing of your data (like objection, erasure). Therefore, processing of a possible application procedure needs to be completed and provided that the storage of data is not necessary to fulfill a legal obligation or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. Further processing will only take place if you have expressly consented to the further use of your data or if we have the legitimacy to further process the data under the permission of applicable laws.
Instead of deleting your data, it is possible that the data may be made anonymized. In this case, any personal reference will irretrievably be removed, which is why the deletion obligations under data protection law also cease to apply. In this case, the restoring of personal data reference is not possible anymore.
All personal data processing presented herein refers exclusively to persons that are at least 18 years old. The use of the systems, as well as the results of the processing is conditioned for children between 14 and 18 years by the approval of the parents/ tutors and forbidden to children under 14 years except where the consent of their parents/tutors was attained. In case despite our reasonable efforts to prevent it, such processing occurs, we will cease it upon noticing the fact that the users are under the age mentioned above.
OMV Petrom hereby informs you that it constantly evaluates and upgrades the security measures implemented as to ensure a secure personal data processing.
Within the context of personal data processing, you benefit of the following rights:
you have the right to obtain a confirmation whether or not your personal data are being processed, and, if affirmative, to have access to the type of personal data and to the conditions of processing, by addressing a request in this respect to the data controller;
