Simply put, the term “personal data” refers to any information which concerns you and can be used to determine your identity, including both obvious data, such as names and contact data, and less obvious data, such as identification numbers, location data, and web identifiers.

Purpose of Data Collection

We will collect and process your personal data if we are legally required to do so, if data collection and processing are necessary for the provision of the services you requested, and if you provide us your consent to the processing of data for a specific purpose. The purposes for which your data are collected and processed include:

We will and may not be held liable for the activities involving your personal data performed by the persons from which we have received your data. We therefore kindly ask that you read the privacy protection policies of such other persons to which you provide your personal data.

After the expiry of such period, Jadran will erase the personal data. However, if such data are necessary for the purpose of generating statistical indicators, making analyses or archiving, or on the basis of some other legitimate interest of Jadran, all actions will be taken to ensure that the relevant personal data are anonymized.

Use of Cookies

Jadran uses certain tools which enable the analysis of the use of the web portal and collection of certain information about you, which helps us gain knowledge about the needs of our guests and/or users for the purpose of improving the quality of our offer.

For this purpose we use the so-called cookies, and some other tools as well.

Cookies cannot be used to reveal your personal identity. When you access our web pages, our servers use cookies to identify the properties of your browser, and not you.

On our website, we use first-party cookies.

Cookies are stored in a designated database and we keep them for no more than 2 years.

Children's Personal Data Protection

Jadran advises all parents and guardians to teach their children how to safely and responsibly manage their personal data on the internet. Jadran does not want or intend to collect personal data concerning children, and will not use such data in any manner whatsoever or disclose the same to third parties. A child may, however, give his/her consent exclusively in relation to the potential offer of information society services, in which case the child must be above 16 years of age. All other processing of data concerning children under the above-specified age and any processing of data, other than such as explicitly described herein, concerning children up to the age of 18, will be allowed only with the prior consent of the parent (holder of parental responsibility).

The personal data concerning children and parents will be erased from our database, if the parents so request. As a parent or guardian, you always have the right to inspect all the personal data concerning your child provided via our website, and you can request that such data be erased (if the relevant data are still in our database), and/or forbid us to collect and use the data which concern your child in the future.

Links to other Web Pages

Jadran's website may contain links to other web pages administered by Jadran, or to certain web pages administered by other organizations that have their own privacy rules. We therefore urge you to read their terms of use and privacy rules before providing any personal data, since Jadran will not be held liable for such web pages or organizations administering the same.

Video Surveillance

Jadran has a legitimate interest to use video surveillance for the purpose of:

• protecting the safety of guests and other persons who find themselves located on the premises controlled by the Company for any reason, and their property,

• managing the access and exit from the operating facilities and areas, and for the purpose of reducing the exposure of employees to the risk of robbery, burglary, aggression, theft and similar events at work or in connection with work,

• protecting the property of the Company,

• preventing unauthorized access to the Company’s premises.

Jadran applies strict rules with the aim of ensuring that all video recordings are automatically erased after the period of 30 days by recording new content over the old, that access to the video surveillance system is restricted to the persons who need it to perform their tasks, and that the video recordings are only viewed/inspected if there is a justified reason for doing so, i.e. if that is necessary to fulfill any of the above-mentioned purposes.

By exception, if they are used as evidence in procedures held before competent state authorities, the video recordings will be kept for a longer period of time.

Human Resources

Job Applicants – The personal data provided to us voluntarily for the purpose of employment (open job application) will be processed exclusively for that purpose and will not be transferred to a foreign country or provided to persons outside Jadran. The personal data received for employment purposes will be kept until the end of the calendar year, unless you request that they be erased earlier. If you apply to a job announcement, and you are not selected, your data will be erased upon completion of the selection process, unless you explicitly agree that your data be kept longer for future employment purposes.

Pupils and Students – In accordance with the law, we are allowed to hire high school pupils and regular students to work for us. In such cases, we are required to collect particular mandatory personal data concerning such pupils and students, and the data required to perform the contract. Furthermore, we are allowed to exchange such personal data with the relevant high school or student service through which the pupil/student is hired. The personal data of pupils and students are not transferred to any foreign country. We are legally required to keep the personal data collected concerning the pupils and students for a period of 6 years after they stop working for us. After the expiry of that period, they will be erased. The data concerning the pupils and students who are not hired will be erased immediately following the completion of the selection process.

The above also applies to the personal data of high school students participating in practical training at our facilities, in accordance with the plan and program for organizing and performing practical training.

Scholarship Beneficiaries – We may also collect personal data for the purpose of granting scholarships to the pupils and students participating in educational programs that are of interest to us. The persons interested in signing a scholarship agreement may apply for participation in announced scholarship competitions by providing the requested data. If selected, they will be offered to sign a scholarship agreement. The personal data concerning the selected applicants will be kept for a period of no more than 5 years from the date of signing the agreement, while the data which concern the applicants who are not selected will be erased upon completion of the selection process. No personal data concerning scholarship applicants and beneficiaries will be transferred to a foreign country.

Business Partners

For the purpose of contacting our business partners and suppliers in connection with the signing and performance of contracts (e.g. negotiating the handover of goods and provision of services), we collect contact data of our business partners who are natural persons and of their employees (e.g. first and last name, official phone/mobile phone number, e-mail address). Such data are kept until the business cooperation is terminated. We do not provide such data to third parties, or transfer the same to third countries. We also do not collect any data which are private in nature, but only such that are associated with the performance of work-related tasks.

Actions Taken in Case of a Personal Data Breach

In case of a personal data breach, Jadran, as the data controller, will notify the competent supervisory body of the personal data breach that has occurred without undue delay and, where possible, no later than within 72 hours from the moment of becoming aware of the same, unless the relevant breach is unlikely to result in a risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons. The report which is delivered to the supervisory body in this case contains all information pursuant to the Regulation.

In case of a personal data breach which is likely to result in a high risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons, Jadran, as the data controller, will notify the data subject of the personal data breach without delay. In cases where the Regulation does not prescribe such a requirement, the data subjects will not be notified of the personal data breach.

Protection of Your Data

To ensure personal data protection, we apply physical, technical and organizational safety measures. The security technology implemented for this purpose is continuously upgraded and tested. Access to your personal data is restricted to employees who need to know such information in order to provide particular benefits or services to you. Furthermore, we make efforts to ensure that our employees are aware of the importance of data confidentiality and privacy and data protection.

The concrete protection measures are regulated in more detail in rulebooks and procedures adopted for this purpose.

Amendments to this Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy may be amended from time to time. Amendments may be necessary as a result of the changes in legislation or our operations with an impact on the protection of personal data.

All amendments will be published on our website without delay, and it will be considered that you have accepted our Data Protection Policy upon your first use of our website after the amendments have been implemented.
