    This means that we process your personal data only in order to achieve such objectives and do not use the personal data, which you provide, for purposes other than the stated purpose of their collection.
  • The type and amount of personal data, which we process, is consistent with the specific, predetermined and legitimate objectives.
    We collect and process the minimum amount of personal data, which is necessary in order to achieve the objectives of processing.

We ensure separate storage of personal data (their material carriers), the processing of which is carried out for different purposes (carriers bearing different types of personal data).
    This ensures that data collected for different processing objectives are stored separately, preventing the data being used for objectives other than those for which they are intended.
