The organizer and the implementer use and process only personal data provided by the participant. The participant is also responsible for the accuracy and correctness of the given data and is obliged to inform the organizer and/or the implementer promptly in case of any changes to this data.
Participants have the right to request information about their personal data processed by the organizer and the implementer at any time, and by objection, they have the right to request the cessation of their processing in cases where the organizer and/or the implementer process data based on their legitimate interest, especially if the organizer uses personal data for direct marketing purposes.
All personal data will be protected with appropriate organizational and technical measures and will be handled lawfully and fairly, and in accordance with applicable data protection regulations.
Participants are informed and explicitly agree that the organizer may entrust certain tasks related to the processing of obtained personal data to a data processor in the EU and/or outside the EU (a natural or legal person processing personal data on behalf of the data controller of the database). In this case, the organizer will transfer data lawfully and select a data processor that meets the prescribed security standards, ensuring a high level of personal data protection.

The organizer must inform participants through the media in these cases. The organizer is not liable for any resulting damage in these cases.
