Any reference in this Policy to "Company", "Us" or "Our" (and all declensions of those words) refers to the Data Controller referred to as FGS SOFTWARE SOLUTIONS S.R.L. (registration number is 3-102-871832) and registered in Costa Rica.
The National Ordinance on the Protection of Personal Data (hereafter referred to as the “DPA”) as well as any other subsidiary legislation issued under the DPA, both as may be amended from time to time; and
Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of The European Parliament And of The Council of 27 April 2016 On The Protection of Natural Persons With Regard To The Processing of Personal Data And On The Free Movement of Such Data, And Repealing Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation)” (hereinafter referred to as “the Regulation” or “GDPR”).
The DPA and the GDPR shall hereafter be collectively referred to as the “Data Protection Laws”.
The Company determines the means and purposes of the processing of Personal Data and therefore acts as the “Data Controller” in terms of the applicable Data Protection Laws.
The Company has adopted a secure communication protocol via the Internet TLS 1.2, used to implement the protected remittances. This protocol involves the encryption of Your Personal Data during transmission over the internet. Moreover, The Company stores Your Personal
Data digitally on encrypted hard drives which is an additional guarantee of security of personal data.
Our services are registered with site identification authorities so that your browser can confirm Our identity before any personally identifiable information is sent. In addition, our secure servers protect this information using advanced firewall technology.
PERSONAL DATA PROTECTION
Personal Data held by Us is protected using the highest industry standard security processes and systems. Our commitment to protecting personal data is not merely through quality and high standards but also through the best and most efficient application of the law. We are bound to only process personal data if such processing is based on a genuine and legitimate reason to do so on the basis of one of the legal grounds established in the GDPR.
PROCESSING ON THE BASIS OF OUR LEGITIMATE INTERESTS
A legitimate interest exists when We have a business or commercial reason upon which personal data will be processed. In such a case We undertake to protect any and all of Your personal data and the manner in which such data is processed and to ensure that such processing would not be unfair to You or to Your interest.
If and when We decide to process Your personal data on the basis of legitimate interest, We will inform You of such, what said legitimate interest is and provide a process whereby You will be able to raise any questions and/or objections that You may have in relation to such processing. It is important to note that The Company is not obliged to stop processing if the grounds for processing override Your right to object. An example of this can be in the case where we need to process your data to abide by anti-money laundering purposes. This also applies when we act in accordance with the binding requirements of Costa Rica law, as it is in our legitimate interest to operate lawfully.
PROCESSING ON THE BASIS OF YOUR CONSENT
Consent is not the only ground we may be permitted or obliged to rely on to process Your personal data. We will only process personal data on the basis of Your consent where we cannot or otherwise choose not to rely on any ulterior legal ground (such as compliance with a legal obligation or legitimate interest). Where we process Your personal data on the basis of Your consent, you shall have the right to withdraw your consent at any time and in the same manner as it had been previously provided by Yourself. In the case that You exercise Your right to withdraw consent, we would then determine whether we are able (or obliged) to process Your personal data on the basis of any other legal ground other than consent. If this is the case We will notify You accordingly. Any such withdrawal of Your consent will not invalidate any processing operations carried out prior to You having withdrawn Your consent.
DATA RETENTION POLICY
Any and all personal data The Company will keep will be protected in the best way possible and will only be used for purposes that are compatible with the applicable Data Protection Laws as well as any other applicable laws. The Company will retain Your Personal Data only for as long as is necessary (taking into consideration the purpose for which it was originally obtained). The criteria We use to determine what is ‘necessary’ depends on the particular Personal Data in question and the specific relationship We have with You (including its duration).
Generally, Our normal practice is to determine whether there is/are any specific law(s) (for example tax or corporate laws) permitting or even obliging Us to keep certain Personal Data for a certain period of time (in which case We will keep the Personal Data for the maximum period indicated by any such law). For example, any data that can be deemed to be “transactional data” must be kept for at least five (5) years.
We would also have to determine whether there are any laws and/or contractual provisions that may be invoked against Us by You and/or third parties and if so, what the prescriptive periods for such actions are (this is usually five (5) years). In the latter case, We will keep any relevant Personal Data that We may need to defend Ourselves against any claim(s), challenge(s), or other such action(s) by You and/or third parties for such time as is necessary.
Where Your Personal Data is no longer required by Us, We will either securely delete or anonymize the Personal Data in question.
Failure to provide Your Personal Data may prevent The Company from meeting its legal and regulatory obligations, fulfilling its contractual obligations, and rendering and/or performing the necessary services needed to satisfactorily manage and maintain Your account. Therefore, failure to provide the necessary personal data may lead to The Company being unable to provide You with certain products and/or services.

However, in all such cases, the final decision is made by our human staff. Email address is also verified however You will receive an email to confirm Your own email address.
PROCESSING ON THE BASIS OF CONSENT
For the avoidance of all doubt, We would like to point out that in those limited cases where We cannot or choose not to rely on another legal ground (for example, Our legitimate interests), We will process Your Personal Data on the basis of Your consent.
In those cases where We process on the basis of Your consent (which We will never presume but which We shall have obtained in a clear and manifest manner from You), YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO WITHDRAW YOUR CONSENT AT ANY TIME and this, in the same manner as You shall have provided it to Us.
Should You exercise Your right to withdraw Your consent at any time (by writing to Us at the physical or email address below), We will determine whether at that stage an alternative legal basis exists for processing Your Personal Data (for example, on the basis of a legal obligation to which We are subject) where We would be legally authorized (or even obliged) to process Your Personal Data without needing Your consent and if so, notify You accordingly.
When We ask for such Personal Data, You may always decline, however, should You decline to provide Us with the necessary data that We require to provide requested services, We may not necessarily be able to provide You with such services (especially if consent is the only legal ground that is available to Us).
Just to clarify, consent is not the only ground that permits Us to process Your Personal Data. In the last preceding section, We pointed out the various grounds that We rely on when processing Your Personal Data for specific purposes.
