Personal Data Breaches

A Personal Data breach means a breach of security leading to the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure of, or access to, your Personal Data transmitted, stored or otherwise processed.

Your Personal Data breach is a security incident and can concern a breach of confidentiality, integrity or availability of Personal Data, as well as any combination of these.

  • Breach of confidentiality: this occurs when unauthorised parties, or parties who have no lawful reason to access the information, do so. The severity of the loss of confidentiality varies according to the extent of the disclosure. That is, the potential number and type of parties who could have unlawfully accessed the information.
  • Breach of integrity: occurs when the original information is altered and the amended data could be prejudicial for the individual. The most serious scenario is when there is a serious possibility that the altered data have been used in a manner that could harm the individual.
  • Breach of availability: the consequence of this is that the original data cannot be accessed when necessary. This could be temporary (the data are recoverable but it will take time, which could be prejudicial to the individual), or permanent (the data cannot be recovered).

In the case of a Personal Data breach, ARCTX shall without undue delay and, where feasible, not later than within three working days after having become aware of it, notify you on the Personal Data breach via e-mail or phone call and with your valid consent[1] take the following steps:

  • Block Personal Data,
  • Eliminate the consequences of Personal Data breach,
  • Check the integrity of all Personal Data,
  • Provide specific advice to you to protect yourself from possible adverse consequences of the breach, such as resetting passwords in the case where their access credentials have been compromised;
  • Unblock Personal Data.

Protection of Personal Data

We follow legal and technical rules determined by the RA laws, EU regulations, GDPR recommendations and other highly recommended sources to provide efficient and necessary protection for your Personal Data. For this purpose, we

  • Ensure that Personal Data can be accessed only by authorised personnel for legally authorised purposes;
  • Protect Personal Data stored or transmitted against accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss and / or alteration, and unauthorised and /or unlawful storage, processing, access and /or disclosure, and
  • Ensure the implementation of a security policy with respect to the processing of Personal Data.

We use a set of standards and technologies that protect data from intentional and / or accidental destruction, modification and / or disclosure. Data security is applied using a range of techniques and technologies, including administrative controls, physical security, logical controls, organizational standards, and other safeguarding techniques that limit access to unauthorized or malicious users or processes.

Our steps of securing Personal Data include
  • Data encryption: Data encryption applies a code to every individual piece of data and will not grant access to encrypted data without an authorized key being given,
  • Data masking: Masking specific areas of data can protect it from disclosure to external malicious sources, and also internal personnel who could potentially use the data,
  • Data erasure: There are times when data that is no longer active or used needs to be erased from all systems. For example, if a customer has requested for their name to be removed from a mailing list, the details should be deleted permanently

1  Please not if it is not possible to get in touch with you within a day, we will take the necessary action without your valid consent.

  • Data resilience: By creating backup copies of data, ARCTX can recover data should it be erased or corrupted accidentally or stolen during a data breach.
