Updated: 11.06.2020

PREAMBLE

At ARTKAI LLC (“we”, “Artkai”) we care about privacy. Therefore, we strictly adhere to all applicable data protection procedures regarding the complete and comprehensive security of your Personal Data.
We are the ARTKAI LLC (a company organized and existing under the laws of Ukraine with its principal place of business located at: 13-A Kurska str., apt. 7, Kyiv 03049, Ukraine, company number: 40672312) - design, software-, application- and website development company that owns and maintains artk.ai (hereinafter - Website).

This Website is used to demonstrate and advertise the Artkai’s services and projects among potential clients and Website visitors (hereinafter - “Visitors”, “you”, “Data Subject”). If you're reading this Privacy Policy - you are the Visitor. This Privacy Policy explains how we use any personal information provided by or collected from Visitors and what happens to it when Visitors visit the Website.
Basically, the data processing is not our essential and direct purpose to do business. We act as Processors of your Personal Data received from third-parties - Personal Data Controllers, such as Google Corp or any Сlient Artkai engaged in contractual relations. Following this Privacy Policy, you may receive more details about our Visitor’s Personal Data processing.

In addition, we represent that our Privacy Policy regulates processing principles of Data Subjects’ Personal Data we may receive from our Clients to fulfill our contractual obligations.

What do the “Data Subject”, “Processor” and “Controller” mean according to the Privacy Policy and GDPR?

Pursuant to Art. 4 of the Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (“General Data Protection Regulation” or “GDPR”), the “Data Subject” is an identified or identifiable natural person. As far as this Privacy Policy also applies to contractual relations with the Artkai’s Clients, Artkai may receive different types of Data subject’s Personal Data from such Clients to perform our contractual obligations. Usually, we act as a “Processor”, that is, according to Art.4 of the GDPR, a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other authority processing Personal Data on behalf of the Controller. Therefore, most of Artkai's Clients act as “Controllers”, that is, according to Art. 4 of the GDPR, the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other authority which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of Personal Data processing.

Given the foregoing, we hereby represent that according to Art.28 of GDPR, Artkai:

  • never engages another processor without prior specific or general written authorisation of the Controller;
  • informs the Controller of any intended changes concerning the addition or replacement of other processors, thereby giving the Controller the opportunity to object to such changes;
  • processes the Personal Data only on documented instructions from the Controller, including with regard to transfers of Personal Data to a third country or an international organization;
  • ensures that persons authorized to process the Personal Data have committed themselves to confidentiality or are under an appropriate statutory obligation of confidentiality;
  • takes into account the nature of processing and assists Controller with appropriate technical and organizational measures, to the extent possible, in performing Controller’s obligation to respond to requests for exercising the data subject’s rights;
  • if Controller so decides, deletes or returns all the Personal Data to the Controller after termination of processing-related services, and deletes existing copies, unless applicable law requires the storage of the Personal Data.

At Artkai we adhere strictly to the Personal Data processing principles, as prescribed by GDPR. In terms of Art.5 GDPR, Artkai:

  • processes Personal Data lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in relation to the Data Subject;
  • minimizes the scope of the Personal Data processed;
  • will not keep Personal Data longer than necessary;
  • ensures appropriate Personal Data security and confidentiality, including access management.

In addition, we use your data for other reasons such as safety and security, customer support, communications from Artkai, marketing purposes, compliance with legal obligations, performance of contractual obligations.

What are the legal grounds for Personal Data processing?

Before proceeding to your Personal Data processing we assess and check the data we collect and determine the legal basis for processing. We use the following basis to collect and process your Personal Data: performance of contractual obligations, compliance with legal obligations, our legitimate interest, and your active consent.

Contractual obligations

While doing business, Artkai usually enters into contractual relations with the Clients. To perform high-quality services Artkai may process the Data subject’s Personal Data. To this end, Artkai concludes Data Processing Agreement with the Client that regulates Personal Data Processing during contractual relations between Artkai and such Client.

Compliance with legal obligations

Artkai needs to process Personal Data to comply with its legal obligation. For example, Artkai will disclose Data Subject details to fiscal authority, in case such Data Subject is the Artkai’s employee; or, a court order may require Artkai to process Personal Data for a particular purpose, which also qualifies as a legal obligation.
