B/ When you make a purchase

For you to buy anything from us, you need to visit our website and thus the types of processing described in the section “When you visit our website” above are relevant to you. If you make a purchase we will also carry out the following processing:

Processing on the basis of the performance of a contract

If you make a purchase from us as a natural person (an individual), we process your identification and contact details and information about your orders in order to process your order.

If you make a purchase from us on behalf of a legal entity (a business), we process the same data for the same purpose on the basis of our legitimate interest to enter into and to perform a contract with the entity that you are representing.

Using these data to process your order means, in particular, using them:

• so that you can complete your order on the website;

• so that we can communicate with you about the order, e.g. send you a confirmation or inform you that the product has been sent to you;

• in order for you to pay for the product; in this regard, we may also transfer your data to our partners operating the payment systems as described in the section “Who processes your personal data and to whom do we transfer your data?”;

• in connection with a complaint about a product ordered;

• in connection with your other request that you address to us in writing or electronically, as described in the section “When you communicate with us via multiple channels”.

We process personal data for this purpose throughout the time necessary to process your order or to handle the respective request under the contract such as handling a complaint.

Processing on the basis of a legitimate interest

When you make a purchase from us, we store your identification and contact details and information about your orders on the basis of our legitimate interest (without your consent) for the purposes of legal claims and our internal record-keeping and checks. Our legitimate interests in this regard are the protection of legal claims and control over the proper provision of our services.

We also process your identification and contact details, your settings, and information about your orders on the basis of our legitimate interest (without your consent) for the following purposes:

• to obtain information based on which we will be able to improve our services for you in the future in order to offer you an even better shopping experience next time, in particular to find out about your satisfaction with our services; our legitimate interest in this regard is to improve our services for you, and

• to tailor the functions of our website to your needs; for this purpose, we also process your IP address and the location derived from it,

• to deliver personalised offers and targeted ads to you by e-mail, text message, via social media, over the phone or by other electronic means or by postal mail; our legitimate interest in this regard is to effectively promote our products and services. In order to be able to tailor an offer for you, we analyse the above data (i.e. your identification and contact details and information about your orders) and gather further, derived data, that we use for this purpose. Based on these data, we categorise our users in groups and send group-specific offers to them.

We process data for the purposes of protecting our legal claims, keeping internal records and for control purposes for the duration of the three-year limitation period, plus one year after its expiry having regard to claims that may be raised at the end of the limitation period. If judicial, administrative or other proceedings are initiated, we process your personal data to the necessary extent throughout the duration of such proceedings and the remaining part of the limitation period after the end of such proceedings.

We use personal data for the other stated purposes for a period of no more than six months.

You have the right to object to processing carried out on the basis of our legitimate interest.

Processing to comply with a legal obligation

We must comply with some statutory obligations too. We do not need your consent to process your personal data on this particular basis. We process your identification and contact details and information about orders on this lawful basis, in order to comply, in particular, with the following laws:

• Act No 89/2012, the Civil Code,

• Act No 634/1992 on consumer protection,

• Act No 235/2004 on value added tax,

• Act No 563/1991 on accounting.

We use the personal data for these purposes for a period of no more than 10 years from the issue of the last document relating to your order.

C/ If you are the recipient of goods or services ordered from us

If you are the recipient of goods or services that have been ordered from us, we process your identification and contact details:

• on the basis of our legitimate interest in order to prepare, enter into and perform the contract with our customer. Complying with the contract is also our legitimate interest;

• on the basis of our legitimate interest to obtain information based on which we will be able to improve our services in the future, or information for generating our internal statistics and overviews; our legitimate interest in this regard is to continuously improve our services for our customers;

• to comply with legal obligations, in particular under Act No 235/2004 on value added tax, and Act No 563/1991 on accounting;

• to protect legal claims and to keep our internal records and for control purposes; our legitimate interests in this regard are the protection of legal claims and control over the proper provision of our services.

We use personal data to prepare, enter into and perform contracts with our customers for the time necessary to process an order. After the expiry of that period, we retain data on the basis of our legitimate interest to protect legal claims and for our internal record-keeping and control for the duration of a three-year limitation period, plus one year after its expiry having regard to claims that may be raised at the end of the limitation period. If judicial, administrative or other proceedings are initiated, we process your personal data to the necessary extent throughout the duration of such proceedings and the remaining part of the limitation period after the end of such proceedings. Our legitimate interests in this regard are the protection of legal claims and control over the proper provision of our services. We use personal data to comply with legal obligations for a period of no more than 10 years relating to the respective order.

You have the right to object to processing carried out to comply with a legal obligation.

D/ When you communicate with us via multiple channels:

When you communicate with us via multiple channels, including, without limitation, the phone, email, chatting tools and social media, we will process your identification and contact details and records of past conversations on the basis of our legitimate interest (i.e. without your consent) for the following purposes:

•  to handle your requests; if you have made a purchase from us and your request is related to an order we may process your data to perform the contract with you;

• to record your requests so we can make sure that we are meeting them duly and in time;

• to prove that we have received and processed your request, e.g. when you order goods or make a complaint via such a channel;

• to analyse such channels in order to improve the quality of our services.

We store personal data for three months for these purposes. If you place an order via any of these channels we may store the data to protect legal claims for the duration of a three-year limitation period, plus one year after its expiry having regard to claims that may be raised at the end of the limitation period. If judicial, administrative or other proceedings are initiated, we process your personal data to the necessary extent throughout the duration of such proceedings and the remaining part of the limitation period after the end of such proceedings.

You have the right to object to processing carried out on the basis of our legitimate interest.

In most cases we process the personal data that you provide to us when ordering goods or services or when communicating with us, e.g. by phone or email. We also obtain your personal data directly from you by monitoring your behaviour on our website and while reading messages.

If you make a purchase from us we may receive additional information about your orders from banks, our partners operating payment systems, e.g. the information about your account number or about a successful payment, in connection with the performance of the purchase contract that we have entered into.

Transfer of data outside the EU

We may also transfer your personal data to countries which are not members of the European Economic Area.

While transferring data to our processors stated in the section “Who processes your personal data and to whom do we transfer it?”, we may also transfer your data to third countries outside the European Economic Area where the adequate level of personal data is not guaranteed. We will carry out any such transfer only if the processor undertakes to observe the standard contractual clauses laid down by the European Commission and available at http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=OJ:L:2004:385:0074:0084:CS:PDF

 

 

What are your rights in relation to the processing of personal data?

You have many rights in relation to the processing of your personal rights. You have the right of access, right to rectification, to erasure, to restrict processing, to data portability and to object.

Just like we have rights and obligations related to the processing of your personal data, you also have certain rights in relation to the processing of your personal data. These rights include:

Right of access

You have the right to know what information about you we process, for what purpose, for how long, where we obtain your personal data, to whom we transfer the data, who else processes them and what other rights you have in relation to the processing of your personal data. You can find all this information in this Personal Data Protection Policy. However, if you are not sure which of your personal data we process, you may ask us to confirm whether we process personal data concerning you, and if we do, you have the right to access such personal data. As part of the right of access you may ask us to provide you with a copy of the personal data being processed. The first copy will be provided free of charge and further copies will cost CZK 2,000.

Right to rectification

To err is human. If you find out that your personal data that we process are inaccurate or incomplete, you have the right to obtain their rectification or completion from us without undue delay.

Right to erasure

In some cases, you have the right to obtain erasure of your personal data from us. We will erase your personal data without undue delay if any of the following occurs:

  • we no longer need your personal data for the purposes for which we processed them;
  • you withdraw your consent to the processing of your personal data for which your consent is required, and we do not have any other basis for processing such data;
  • you use your right to object to the processing (see Right to object to processing below) of personal data that we have been processing on the basis of our legitimate interests and we conclude that we no longer have any such legitimate interests justifying such processing, or 
  • you believe that our processing of your personal data no longer complies with the generally binding legislation.

However, please do bear in mind that even if one of these reasons occurs, this does not mean that we erase all of your personal data immediately. This right will not apply where the processing of your personal data remains necessary for us to comply with our legal obligation or for the establishment, exercise or defence of our legal claims (see section ”Why we process your personal data and on what basis”).

Right to restrict processing

In some cases, you may use, apart from the right to erasure, the right to restrict the processing of your personal data. This right allows you to request, in certain cases, that your personal data is marked and that such data is not subject to any further processing operations – not forever (as in the case of the right of erasure) but for a limited time. We have to restrict the processing of your personal data when:

  • you have challenged the accuracy of your personal data, until we agree on accurate data;
  • we have been processing your personal data without a sufficient lawful basis (e.g. beyond a strictly necessary extent) but you prefer restriction rather than the erasure of such data (e.g. if you expect to provide such data to us in the future anyway);
  • we no longer need personal data for the above purposes of processing but you request it for the establishment, exercise or defence of your legal claims, or 
  • you have objected to processing. The right to object to processing is described in detail in the chapter Right to object to processing).

While we are considering your objection to processing we must restrict the processing of your personal data.

Right to portability

You have the right to receive the personal data that concern you and that you have provided to us and that we have been processing on the basis of your consent and to perform a contract. We will provide the data to you in a structured commonly used and machine-readable format. So that we can easily transfer such data on your request, these must be data that we process in an automated manner in our electronic databases.

Right to object to processing

You have the right to object to the processing of personal data carried out on the basis of our legitimate interest (see section “Why we process your personal data and on what basis”). If you object to processing for marketing activities, we will automatically stop processing your data; in other cases, we will do so unless we have serious legitimate grounds for continuing to process the data.

Right to complain

The use of your rights in any of the manners described above will not affect your right to complain before the competent supervisory authority. You can use this right in particular if you believe that we have been processing your personal data without a legal basis or in breach of generally binding legislation. You may lodge a complaint against our processing of your personal data to Úřad pro ochranu osobních údajů [The Office for Personal Data Protection], with its registered address at Pplk. Sochora 27, 170 00 Praha 7.

 

 

How to use your rights and the contact details of the data controller?

You can use any of your rights by contacting the controller. The controller did not appoint a Data Protection Officer, but did appoint a person who is responsible for and oversees the proper processing of your personal data.
