By means of these Principles of Personal Data Processing, the company Metrostav a.s.

Basic information about processing of personal data

The principles of personal data processing apply to all clients, suppliers and customers of the Company and also to anyone who contacts the Company or in some other way imparts or shares some personal data (unless specified otherwise hereunder) with it. This means all people who utilise the services of the Company or provide services or sub-deliveries for it, or are in some other relationship with the Company.

Personal data is processed in Metrostav manually and automatically in Company information systems. If the personal data of data subjects is processed by information systems, no automated decision-making occurs.

What data the Company gathers

The Company gathers these categories of data:

  1. Data which the data subjects themselves provide

Information provided upon these occasions:

  • in the conclusion of a contractual relationship between the data subject and Company or for the purposes of creation of this contractual relationship;
  • data provided for the fulfilment of orders;
  • if a data subject contacts the Company and asks about or offers deliveries of its services or goods; in communications with the Company, either via email or by filling in any contact form on the website;
  • if a data subject contacts the Company for a different reason.
  1. Information from other sources

Such sources include:

  • publicly accessible sources, including public registers and the Internet;
  • information which Metrostav has received from third parties, such as an employer or colleagues
  • of a data subject or its business partners and which it absolutely needs to fulfil an order or perform
  • legal duties.

The Company may combine information gathered from these sources with other information which it gains through its own activity, i.e., by processing and evaluating personal data already gathered.


How the Company uses personal data

The Company uses the data gathered, for these purposes:

  1. Protection of assets, safety and other rights of the Company and third parties.
    The Company has a legitimate interest in protecting its assets and rights and the assets and rights of third parties. To this end, the construction sites, offices and premises of the Company may be protected by a CCTV system and visitor registration system.

The Company uses personal data exclusively for the purpose specified, and it keeps camera recordings in compliance with the opinion of the Office for Personal Data Protection generally for three days. The Company keeps records about visits, which contain only essential personal data (most often given name and surname, document number, or data about employer and vehicle licence number), for a maximum of 90 days.

  1. Contacting for cooperation
    The Company may use contact data to enquire about services and products from its suppliers, including potential ones. This constitutes a mutual legitimate interest in business cooperation. If a data subject is not interested in being contacted about business by Metrostav any further, it may use any of the Company‘s contact data to announce this fact to it.
  2. Building aktivity
    Metrostav uses the data for the actual fulfilment and recording of orders, for communication with clients, customers and suppliers, and the performance of all associated contractual and legal duties.
  3. Bookkeeping
    The Company uses the data to issue accounting documents and for bookkeeping according to legal requirements.
  4. Marketing in the sense of the offer of services of our Company
    The Company may use the personal data of its suppliers for the purposes of bidding in tenders and public contracts in which it participates.

The personal data is processed for this purpose due to the mutual legitimate interest in the fulfilment of business purposes and conclusion of the relevant contracts or on the basis of express consent to the pro cessing of personal data in the CED internal information system.

  1. Marketing, advertising and corporate communication

The Company may also use the personal data of data subjects for the purpose of:

  • its publication in promotional printed materials or on the company website, including Company profile on social networks, this being on the basis of the consent granted;
  • sending of information and news, for example, in the form of the sending of Metrostav News, on the basis of the consent granted or due to mutual legitimate interest in the case of existence of a contractual or comparable relationship between the Company and the data subject. If a data subject is not interested in being contacted in this way by Metrostav any further, it may use any of the Company‘s contact data to announce this fact to it.

If Metrostav holds any promotional, educational or other social event, it may take photographs of the event or make audio-visual recordings of it and publish these photographs or recordings on its website, social networks, or in other marketing materials, in order to give information about the event and its course. Recordings are not made with the intention of processing any personal data, and so personal data is not processed here.

  1. Recruitment of new employees

If the Company obtains someone‘s personal data for the purposes of recruiting employees, it uses it only for filling the new position. If one part of this data is professional psychodiagnostics, Metrostav processes the personal data arising therefrom only with the express consent of the data subject. The Company processes personal data for the entire duration of the selection procedure unless the data subject grants consent for the Company to keep his personal data for a longer period and use it for the eventuality of a newly vacant suitable position in the future.

Metrostav may process the personal data of vocational secondary school, professional technical secondary school, and university students, in order to support education and professional development, support and fulfilment in Metrostav, if such is derived from the contract concluded between Metrostav and the student, if the student grants consent to it, or if there is a mutual legitimate interest in the performance of work in Metrostav and in future cooperation. If a student is not interested in the performance of professional work at Metrostav, he may use any of the Company‘s contact data to announce this fact to it.

  1. Court proceedings and defence of legal claims

The Company can use the data collected to enforce claims, resolve disputes, or to protect its rights and legitimate interests according to valid legal regulations.

  1. Prevention and Ethics Line

If a data subject contacts the Ethics Line with a specific suggestion, he thereby expresses his consent to the processing of his personal data for the purposes of the investigation of the suggestion, this being for a period commensurate with the investigation of the suggestion and adoption of remedial measures.

If a third party announces personal data of a data subject to Metrostav on the Ethics Line, Metrostav will only process it to the extent necessary and for the period necessary for investigating the suggestion and ensuring redress, all of this in the context of the legitimate interest of the Company and third parties in adherence to all legal obligations.
