  1. Which personal data will be processed?

Personal data means any information regarding an individual. In the context of the provision of services, personal data may be processed to comply with the requirements of law and meet a legitimate interest of the controller.

For the purpose of subscription, we process your identification and contact data (name, surname, invoice address, mailing address, phone number, e-mail), the title ordered, number of copies, and date of commencement and end of the subscription.

In case of subscription for a person other that the one who placed the order, we process also the name and surname and mailing address of the beneficiary.

If you lodge a complaint regarding the delivery of a subscribed title, we will process information concerning the complaint (time of and reason for the complaint, the title subscribed for, the way in which the complaint was resolved). If you become entitled to a gift to be provided with your subscription, we will process information on the gift you gained and the time and way in which it was delivered to you, including a delivery receipt, if any.

We will use your e-mail address, phone number and information on the subscribed title to deliver to you commercial communications related to the offer of periodicals similar to that you have subscribed for. The legal ground based on which we carry out such processing is our company’s legitimate interest in developing our publishing operations. You may opt out of receiving the commercial communications at any time, in a manner specified in each commercial communication.

The provision of personal data is not mandatory; if you do not provide the personal data required for a subscription order, we cannot provide the subscription and enter into an appropriate contract with you.

In case of registration on the web sites of Business Media CZ s.r.o. (see Section 2: List of Servers) and in case that you place an order for newsletter deliveries, we process the following information: your name and surname, e-mail address, phone number. In case of registration of an account on the discussion web sites listed above, we record your nickname and password in an encrypted form.

Furthermore, we process any personal data that you provide to us in case that you apply for a job with our company. If so, we process your name, surname, degree and contact information, i.e., your e-mail and phone number, information on your highest education level and practice and, as the case may be, other personal data that you provide to us during the recruitment process.

  1. Reason for personal data processing

We primarily process your personal data to meet the legitimate interest of the controller. The provision of such personal data is mandatory; unless the personal data is provided for these purposes, the cooperation between the parties is impossible. To process the personal data for such purposes, we do not need your consent; processing for the purposes of contract performance and fulfilment of legal obligations cannot be refused. This covers, in particular, the following activities:

  1. user identification for providing access to the services rendered via the controller’s web site (see Section 2: List of Servers);
  2. activities aiming at entering into and performing a contract (including deliveries of goods and services) made with the data subject, including any administrative steps prior to entering into the contract made at the request of the data subject;
  3. information necessary for the fulfilment of a controller’s legal obligation, such as any tax liability arising from law;
  4. personal data necessary for the protection of legitimate interests of the data subject, i.e., information on the services requested and provided, payment habits, debtor records, collection of amounts owing by clients, resolution of complaints and disputes with clients, records of dealings with clients, written and electronic communication, service quality improvement, delivery of commercial communications including offers of products and services.

In case of the personal data of an individual – job applicant, we process their personal data to select a suitable job candidate in the process of carrying out steps aiming at the conclusion of a contract (recruitment process).

In addition, you have the right to request erasure of any personal data which is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was originally collected, or if the controller is no longer entitled to use such personal data for other reasons (e.g., the personal data was processed unlawfully, or the erasure is required by law, etc.).

In such circumstances, we will continue processing your personal data only if proved that there are serious legitimate grounds for doing so.

You have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data. This means that you may ask us not to erase your personal data which we otherwise would be obliged to erase and to no longer use your personal data until it is clarified whether the personal data being processed is accurate or whether your objection to the personal data processing is grounded.
