This period may be extended by a further two months if necessary and taking into account the complexity and number of applications. In certain specific cases defined in the GDPR, the Controller is not obliged to comply in full or in part with the request.

In such cases, the Controller may impose a reasonable fee taking into account the administrative costs associated with providing the requested information or refuse to comply with the request. The applicant will always be informed of this.

11. Right to object

If the legal reason for processing personal data is the so-called legitimate interest, the Data Subject has the right to raise a factual objection to such processing of personal data at any time. In such a case, personal data will not be further processed unless there are serious legitimate reasons for the processing which outweigh the interests of the Data Subject or his/her rights and freedoms, or unless they are processed for the determination, exercise or defence of legal claims. The concerned Data Subject may object to the processing directly to the person responsible for GDPR at gdpr@safibra.cz. Please indicate in the email the specific situation that leads you to the conclusion that the Controller should not process your data.
