2. Data

Types of data used by the 1DOX portal


Open data: The website (1dox.site) uses open data (incl. Commercial register data, such as: the company’s name, e-mail, address, VAT number, etc.). The source of said data is the Commercial Register Link. 1DOX re-publishes data previously published by the Commercial Register, and relies on the open data of the Commercial Register. 


Public personal data: 1DOX uses public personal data where they are linked with a legal entity. 1DOX re-publishes data previously published by the Commercial Register. As access to data of corporate representatives in the Commercial Register is restricted (i.e., protected by a security code), the 1DOX portal does also not provide direct access to the names, dates of birth and personal codes of corporate representatives, and said data can only be accessed after logging in, and only for the purpose of using the services. According to § 28(1) of the Commercial Code, these data are public and therefore 1DOX exercises the right of freedom of information. The purpose of processing such data is to simplify the provision of the service to customers, and facilitate preparation, signing and ordering of documents. These data are processed on the basis of point (f) of Article 6(1) of GDPR. The assessment of the legitimate interest has been carried out is and available in the respective document.


In such case, the data subjects involved are not informed of the processing of public data, because the 1DOX services portal does not collect or process any other personal contact data of data subjects, without data subjects’ consent.
