2. Who is responsible for the processing of personal data?
2.1 Data Controller
KT-Group is responsible for the processing and decides alone or in cooperation with others which personal data are being collected as well as the purpose and the means with regard to the processing of those personal data.
KT-Group is free to rely on data processors. A processor is a natural or legal person who processes personal data upon request or on behalf of the data controller. The processor is required to ensure the security and confidentiality of the personal data. The processor shall always act on the instructions of the data controller.
