3. Risks of personal data protection
We protect personal data against risks they are exposed to, and as main risks related to personal data we recognized as follows:
Risk of personal data confidentiality – by introducing the functions of the controller and processor (and possibly a personal data protection officer), we want to create a business environment that restricts the ability and the right to access personal information, so that those who do not have the processing authorization will not possess it.
Risk of personal data integrity – by defining the policy and introducing mechanisms for verifying the accuracy and integrity of personal data, the aim is to achieve: security, protection against unauthorized or illegal processing and from accidental loss, destruction or damage by applying appropriate technical or organizational measures.
Risk of personal data availability – in cases where the data storage system is compromised (attacks, inaccessibility, power failure, readability of recorded data, etc.), it is necessary to provide access to backups as well as frequently check them. Reputational risk – loss or theft of personal data may have a very negative impact on the reputation of the company, and stolen data may be abused, causing substantial damage to users and data subjects.
Risk of compromising data subjects’ rights in case of transfer of data to a third country –
personal data may be stored on data carriers located outside the country. In that case, it is necessary to have a clear insight into where the data are located, so that they do not end up with people who should not have access to them.
4. Types of personal data

Basic personal data: Identification data (name, surname, Citizen ID Number, PIN, citizenship, address, photo); Online identifiers (cookies, IP addresses).
