Secrecy and security of personal data

QuarentaCars undertakes to adopt the necessary technical and organisational measures, according to the level of security appropriate to the risk of the data collected, in order to guarantee the security of the personal data and to avoid the destruction, loss or accidental or illicit alteration of personal data transmitted, stored or otherwise processed, or the unauthorised communication of or access to such data.

The personal data will be treated as confidential by the data controller, who undertakes to inform of and to ensure by means of a legal or contractual obligation that such confidentiality is respected by his employees, associates, and any person to whom he makes the information accessible.

Rights arising from the processing of personal data

The User has over QuarentaCars and may therefore exercise against the Data Controller the following rights recognised in the RGPD

  • Right of access: This is the user’s right to obtain confirmation of whether or not QuarentaCars is processing his or her personal data and, if so, to obtain information about his or her specific personal data and the processing that QuarentaCars has carried out or is carrying out, as well as, among other things, information available about the origin of such data and the recipients of the communications made or planned. 
  • Right of rectification: This is the user’s right to have his personal data modified if they are found to be inaccurate or, taking into account the purposes of the processing, incomplete. 
  • Right of suppression (“the right to forget”): This is the user’s right, provided that current legislation does not establish otherwise, to have his or her personal data deleted when they are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or processed; the user has withdrawn his or her consent to the processing and there is no other legal basis for doing so; the user objects to the processing and there is no other legitimate reason to continue it; the personal data has been processed unlawfully; the personal data must be deleted in compliance with a legal obligation; or the personal data has been obtained as a result of a direct offer of information society services to a person under 14 years of age. In addition to the deletion of the data, the data controller must, taking into account the available technology and the cost of its implementation, take reasonable steps to inform the data controllers who are processing the personal data of the data subject’s request for the deletion of any link to those personal data. 
  • Right to limit processing: This is the right of the User to limit the processing of his or her personal data. Users have the right to obtain limitations of processing when they contest the accuracy of their personal data; the processing is unlawful; the data controller no longer needs the personal data, but the user needs it to make a claim; and when the user has objected to the processing. 
  • Right to the portability of data: Where processing is carried out by automated means, the User shall have the right to receive from the Data Controller his personal data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and to transmit them to another Data Controller.

In the event that the User considers that there is a problem or infringement of the regulations in force in the way his or her personal data is being processed, he or she has the right to effective judicial protection and to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the State in which he has his habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged offence.
