As you navigate through the website, certain non-personal information may be passively collected (that is, gathered without your actively providing the information). Fortech may collect information about your computer and Internet connection, including your IP address, operating system and browser type. This is statistical data about our website visitors’ equipment, browsing actions and patterns and does not identify any individual.

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site. We use temporary cookies (also known as session cookies) and permanent cookies (also known as persistent cookies). Temporary cookies are stored in your browser for the entire time of your visit on our website and are deleted when you leave. Permanent cookies are those tiny text files that remain in your browser even after you leave our website, unless you delete them yourself.

If you don’t want Fortech to collect your non-personal information via cookies, you can prevent the acceptance of new cookies in your browser. You can find in the browser’s Help menu information on how to set your browser to notify you when you receive a new cookie and how to disable cookies completely.

Collected data

Fortech limits the personal data it processes to information we can use to identify you personally (name, address, phone number, email) so that we can communicate with you. If your inquiry is related to recruitment, we will also process information about your education, professional experience, skills, and anything else that can help our recruiters identify the best matching job for you. If your inquiry is business related, we will also process and record information about your company or business that enables us to assess the fit between our organizations.

Data Storage at Fortech

We will be storing your personal data for 10 years, ensuring adequate data protection and security for your personal data through this entire period.

We will only provide access to your personal data to personnel of Fortech, clients, partners or providers of Fortech who need it to handle your request or to address your potential future needs.

To avoid automatic decisions on how your personal data is handled we process it both manually and automatically, with computer software. This means machines cannot make assumptions on what you have given consent for.

In addition, we take strict security measures to prevent your personal data from leaking outside the countries in which we operate.

Data transfer to third parties

All details collected throughout the website might be sent via email to the relevant department at Fortech, to collaborators, partners or affiliate companies of Fortech. When we share your data with collaborators, partners of affiliate companies, we do so to achieve the purpose for which you provided us with the data, such as responding to your request.

The data you provide via our contact forms through this website or via email is shared directly with third parties only if we are legally required to do, such as in case of law enforcement or security. We will never share or sell your data to gain advantage or profit.

In accordance with the European Union legislation concerning the collection and processing of personal data, you have the following rights:

  • To request us to rectify or erase your personal data or restrict our processing of your personal data or object to such processing.
  • To request from Fortech copies of your personal data undergoing processing. We must provide the first copy for free, while for any further copies you request we may charge a reasonable fee based on administrative costs. If you make the request by electronic means and unless you request otherwise, we shall provide the information in a commonly used electronic form.
  • To not be the subject of a decision based exclusively on automatic data processing.
  • To not have your personal data transferred to third party countries.
  • To obtain from Fortech restriction of processing where one of the following applies:
    • you contest the accuracy of the personal data we processed, for a period that would enable us to verify the accuracy of your personal data;
    • the processing is unlawful, and you oppose the erasure of your personal data and request the restriction of its use instead;
    • Fortech no longer needs your personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you require us to keep it for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
  • To file a complaint against Fortech at the National Supervisory Authority for Personal Data Processing and before the competent courts of law if you believe that we have not handled your personal data according to the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) requirements.

In short, you can ask us to share with you, adjust, delete or keep the information we have about you for more than 10 years, or file a complaint against Fortech if you believe we have not met all the requirements imposed by law when processing your personal data.
