Through the use of appropriate technical and organizational procedures for securing personal data, we will prevent unauthorized access to or disclosure of personal data.

The Helios Group occasionally entrusts certain tasks related to the processing of acquired personal data to contractual partners, with whom it has a contract on personal data processing. These partners can process the acquired data on behalf of the Helios Group only for predefined purposes and in accordance with the applicable law. When the Helios Group uses software tools or stores personal data on servers outside of the European Union for other purposes, it uses approved standard contractual provisions as part of the contract with the provider of these services as a safeguard measure.

The user may at any time request from the Helios Group access to their data and their correction (and in this respect the processing limit), data portability (in the case of personal consent or contract) or the deletion of their personal data (this does not apply to the data necessary for a contract, for the duration of its validity). The user may at any time cancel the given consent to the processing of personal data or object to the use of their data for direct marketing purposes. The user shall do so by sending a notification with the subject line/wording: GDPR – Helios Group – “Your country” to our e-mail address: gdpr@helios-group.eu or by post to the address: Kansai Helios Coatings GmbH, Ignaz-Köck-Straße 15, 1210 Vienna, Austria.  The withdrawal of consent does not affect the legality of the data processing that was carried out on the basis of the consent until its cancellation. Similarly, each data subject has the right to lodge a complaint directly with the Information Commissioner if they consider that the processing of their personal data is in violation of the applicable law.
