When the personal data referring to the data subject is obtained from the data subject themselves, at the time of collection, the data subject shall be provided with the processing information, in a clear and intelligible form. If appropriate, the essential information about the processing will be provided on the collection form and a second layer of more detailed information will be indicated or linked from the collection form.

Uses and purposes

The processing of personal data will be in accordance with FGV’s own functions and its use will be limited to those purposes for which it has been expressly collected.

If the personal data is intended to be further processed for a purpose other than that for which it was collected, the data subject will be informed prior to the further processing about this other purpose and will be provided with any additional relevant information, provided that the data subject does not already have this information.

The purpose of the processing of personal data will be that necessary for the administrative management and processing of the administrative procedures for which your data are requested, which will correspond to each of the processing activities carried out by FGV and which are accessible in the RAT.

Processing legitimacy

In general, the legal basis for the processing of personal data by FGV is the fulfilment of legal obligations or the performance of actions in the public interest or in the exercise of public powers vested in the Generalitat Valenciana, in accordance with the rules governing the actions of public administrations and, in particular, Law 39/2015 of 1 October on the Common Administrative Procedure of Public Administrations and Law 40/2015 of 1 October on the Legal Regime of the Public Sector, the Statute of Autonomy and the Law of Government.

However, some processing may require the consent of the persons affected by the processing. In the cases in which the legal basis for the processing is the consent of the person concerned, FGV will put in place mechanisms that allow the consent to be granted by a clear affirmative action from this person and in such a way that evidence of it can be preserved.

The legal basis that enables each of the processing activities carried out by FGV can be consulted in the RAT.

According to the provision established in Article 14, paragraph 5.c) of the GDPR, the data from the processing that are the responsibility of the administration of the Consell or its instrumental public sector may be processed by bodies that have a supervisory, inspection or control function related to the exercise of public authority, provided that this access to data is expressly provided for in the regulations that regulate them (General Intervention, Inspection of Services, Delegation of Data Protection).

The Data Protection Officer of the Generalitat FGV will not use the data for commercial, advertising or any other purposes unrelated to its public authority, under any circumstances.

The rights of interested parties

The data subject may at any time exercise the rights guaranteed to data subjects by the GDPR under Articles 15 to 23, which are as follows:

RIGHT OF ACCESS: The interested party has the right to obtain confirmation from FGV of whether personal data concerning them are being processed, and if so, has the right to access this data and information regarding the purposes, recipients, categories of data processed, their origin and conservation period, claims, existence of automated decisions and their consequences, and all additional rights of rectification, deletion, limitation, opposition and portability.

RIGHT TO RECTIFICATION AND ERASURE: The interested party has the right to obtain the rectification of inaccurate or incomplete personal data concerning them from FGV, without undue delay. Likewise, the interested party has the right to request the deletion of personal data concerning them. If there is no other legal basis for its conservation, FGV will proceed to the deletion of the data when they are no longer necessary or have been processed unlawfully, when the data subject withdraws their consent in processing that requires it, or when they oppose to the processing.

RIGHT OF LIMITATION: The data subject has the right to obtain the limitation of data processing from FGV, in cases of contestation of the accuracy of the data, when the processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the deletion of the personal data and requests instead the limitation of its use, when the data subject needs to keep the data in order to formulate or exercise claims or while verifying whether the legitimate reasons of the administration prevail over those of the data subject in case the data subject opposes the processing.

RIGHT OF OPPOSITION: The data subject has the right to object to the processing of personal data concerning them. FGV will cease to process these personal data, unless it can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the formulation, exercise or defence of claims.

RIGHT OF PORTABILITY: The data subject has the right to receive their personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable and interoperable format and to transmit it to another data controller, provided that the processing is legitimised on the basis of consent or within the framework of the performance of a contract and the processing is carried out by mechanised means. They also have the right, where technically feasible, to have the data transmitted directly from data controller to data controller. It shall not apply where the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest in the exercise of public authority vested in the controller.

All of the above rights, including the withdrawal of consent, are of a highly personal nature and can therefore only be exercised by the person concerned. However, they may act through a representative in the cases and under the conditions provided for by the legislation in force.
