We inform you that the above categories of third party recipients of your personal data are processors on our behalf and therefore as such they do not process your data beyond the above transfer purposes.
Where we transfer your personal data to the above third party recipients, or other recipients, this requires that the third parties are committed to complying with personal data regulation, whether they are acting as Processors on our behalf or as Data Controllers jointly.

9. Duration of retention of your personal data
Your personal data are kept only for the time required to fulfill the purpose for which they are collected and processed and in order for DELTA to apply the relevant legal framework. Following this, your data will be deleted/destroyed, unless you give your explicit written consent to their retention or there is another legitimate reason for further processing.
In any case, you have the right to request the termination of communication for promotional or advertising purposes at any time, provided that you have given your consent for this purpose.
In cases where the retention of personal data is necessary for the exercise or protection of legitimate rights of DELTA before judicial or other authorities provided for by applicable legislation, the retention period is extended until the end of the period when the data is no longer necessary for the above purposes.

• In the context of maintaining a video surveillance system for the purpose of protecting persons and property on our premises, we keep the image data for seven (7) days, after which they are automatically deleted. In the event that we detect an incident during this period, we will isolate part of the video and keep it for up to one (1) month more, in order to investigate the incident and initiate legal proceedings to defend our legal interests, while if the incident concerns a third party we will keep the video for up to three (3) months more. The retained footage is only accessible by our competent/authorized personnel who are in charge of site security. This material is not passed on to third parties, except in the following circumstances:
• a) to the competent judicial, prosecutorial and police authorities when it contains information necessary for the investigation of a criminal offence involving persons or property of the controller,
• (b) to the competent judicial, prosecutorial and police authorities when they lawfully request data in the course of their duties; and

DELTA does not deliberately process personal data of minors under the age of 18 (and under 15 in the case of information society services), respectively, without the prior consent of their parent or legal guardian. We undertake to provide the parent/guardian with:
1. information on the specific categories of personal data collected from the minor; and
2. the opportunity to object to further collection, use or storage of such data.

Although the way the internet works and the fact that it is free to anyone does not allow us to provide guarantees that unauthorised third parties will never be able to breach the technical and organisational measures in place, we try to avoid unfortunate circumstances.
We limit access to your personal data to only those employees and contractors and partners of DELTA in general who need to know this data in order to provide you with the services you require. In addition, we train all employees on the importance of confidentiality and maintaining the privacy and security of your personal data.

In particular, in order for us to consider a request for access or information relating to your image, you must specify approximately when you were within the range of the cameras and provide us with an image of you, to make it easier for us to identify your own data and to hide the data of third parties shown.
