Types of collected personal data
“Processing” means any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or personal data sets, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction. The personal data we collect includes individual information about you: your name, address, email, company data, unique computer identifier, IP address, payment history, username, password, host country, VAT ID, payment information detailed below, and any additional information that may be disclosed by you to our staff when you contact us through official channels. We do not collect personal data while you use our software.
The scope of personal data collected depends on the services you order and the products and services you use, so not all pieces of information provided may be relevant to you.
We do not link anonymized data to other personal data unless you have registered for a product or service or logged in to our online service. This is intended to provide additional protection for your account against possible fraud.
We may also receive and process personal data from publicly available sources when necessary to better provide our services.
Purposes and legal basis of personal data processing
The Company is guided by the principles of lawfulness, fairness, transparency, minimization of data processing, sufficiency, rationality and expediency of personal data processing. Your data is collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes. We strive for keep your personal data accurate and, where necessary, up to date.
We ensure the lawfulness of the personal data processing by the fact that the Company processes your personal data on the legal basis as follows:
Your consent to the processing of personal data (based on the Article 6. (1) a) of the GDPR).
In all cases, before granting consent, we shall inform you that you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time pursuant to Article 7 (3) of the GDPR. Withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of the data processing prior to withdrawal.
The need to process personal data based on performance of the agreement under which you are a party or to perform, on your behalf, the steps preceding the conclusion of the agreement (based on the Article 6. (1) b) of the GDPR).
The data belonging to this legal basis are a precondition for concluding the agreement with us.
The need to process for purposes arising from our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of third parties, but your interests or your fundamental rights and freedoms as a data subject always take precedence over such interests (based on the Article 6. (1) f) of the GDPR).
In the case of this legal basis, the Company is obliged to perform a test for balance of interests. In this test, the Company decides on the basis of objective criteria whether the client's interests over data management take precedence over the goals set by the Company. During the interest balance test, the Company pays special attention to the following:
the chosen method or individual technology by which the data processing is performed must be necessary for the legitimate interests of the Company;
data management should be proportionate to the business needs, ie the purpose to be achieved;
data management should be carried out in a way that minimizes interference and should focus on the specific risk area.
The need to process for fulfillment of a legal obligation. In this case we process your personal data for the purpose that the Company fulfill its obligations (Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR).
Examples of such legal obligations are: fulfillment of accounting obligations, fulfillment of administrative and official obligations, fulfillment of official requests.
The purpose of processing depends directly on the actual data processing related activity (e.g. distribution of software licenses). We only collect and process your personal data for purposes that cannot be achieved by other means. The detailed purposes are listed below.
