2. How do We acquire Personal data and what is the basis for data processing?
We offer a broad range of Services to our Customers. Information that We acquire on the person depends on the Service, which the Customer uses or for which the Customer has applied.

  • We can receive data from other sources, for example, if the Customer makes contact with us at other service providers or cooperation partners, for example, regarding the acquisition of devices or accessories thereof, delivery of shipments or settlement of the issues of repair of devices. In order to fulfil the requirements of regulatory enactments and ensure long-term cooperation possibilities, the need may arise for us to also request data from publicly available registers, within the framework of regulatory enactments.

The Customer shall be entitled to refuse to provide us with his/her Personal data, however in such a case it is possible that We will not be able to provide the Services requested by the Customer and the provision of the transaction will be refused.
We perform Data processing in accordance with the specific basis of data processing only, including, on the basis of the request of the Customer and provision of the transaction related to it; scope of the consent provided by the Customer; fulfilment of requirements stipulated by regulatory enactments, as well as the protection of legitimate interests of us and third persons that We perform, considering the balance between the rights and interests of the Customer.

3. What Personal data do We acquire?
Types of Personal data may differ, depending on the used Service or cooperation. General Personal data may be distributed into the following categories of Personal data:

  • Basic information, including the first name, surname, contact phone, e-mail address;
  • Data related to the relationship with the Customer, for example, information on the Service provided to the Customer and data arising from the provision of the Service, such as, acquisition of devices or accessories and documents confirming the transaction in relation to this; data of shipment delivery service; data on repair of devices and in relation to this, including the producer of the device, model, IMEI code, complete set, description of defects, visual image - assessment, security code, if any; or data available within the framework of the data storage service for devices; documents related to payments and data thereof; communication data of the Customer that we receive during the contact in the presence of or remotely with the Customer, such as e-mail messages addressed to us, applications or information provided during the phone call conversation and agreements concluded with the Customer; requests of the Customer or prohibitions to process specific data for the relevant purpose;

The consent shall be effective until the fulfilment thereof or revocation accordingly, if it is earlier. Revocation shall not affect the lawfulness of processing, which is based on the relevant consent before revocation.

We shall not deliberately collect and process personally identifiable information from persons, who are below the age set by regulatory enactments, giving the right to act independently. We respect the rights of such persons and in the case of need for the Services We recommend the parents or guardians of such persons to contact us.
4. How do We use Personal data?
We process the Personal data in order to provide Services, effective Customer service, cooperation and other activities significant for our activity and Customers.
In order to protect the Personal data of our Customers, We prefer Anonymised data processing to prevent identification of the person. However, We quite often have the need to process identifiable Personal data, considering the essence of the provided Service or cooperation, as well as the requirements of binding regulatory enactments. In such a case We process the data, taking into account the applicable basic principles for data processing, in particular the minimisation principle for data processing and other requirements provided by regulatory enactments.
We only process the Personal data for particular necessary purposes, such as:

  • Service provision quality control. The quality of provided services and implementation of the Customer’s rights provided by regulatory enactments for the receipt of Services appropriate for the transaction is important for us, therefore in certain cases the Personal data may be processed for the purposes of quality control.
  • Settlement of the issues applied, including review and settlement of various applied issues or complaints.
  • Provision of services and fulfilment of the transaction. We process the data in order to provide the Services. For example, We process the data, in order for it to be possible to perform the applied repair of the device or the applied order delivery. We process Personal data during the communication with the Customer, for example, send service notifications related to the Service, in order to provide information on the result of the fulfilment of the service or provide other important information to the Customer. Besides, the need may appear for us to contact the Customer in relation to the Service provision, in order to specify, for example, the information of the applied order, description of the submitted application for repair or establish any other additional information, facilitating the course of processing of the transaction. In order to ensure traceable fulfilment of the transaction, our meetings and negotiations with the Customer regarding settlement of the particular issue may be recorded in writing. Within the framework of transactions, in order to fulfil the provisions of accounting We have to perform the administering of payments, as well as recording of provided Services. In cases when the Customer has not paid for the provided Services in full, We need to implement processes for the receipt of the remaining payments, in accordance with the procedure provided by regulatory enactments.
  • Making proposals. We consider the rights of every Customer to give, revoke or change the possibilities for the receipt of information. In cases when the Customer has shown an intention to receive information or provide an opinion regarding the particular products or Services, the Personal data may be processed, in order for it to be possible to provide the Customer with the necessary information. In such cases the consent of the Customer is always important. If the consent of the Customer refers to the receipt of information from the cooperation partner, for example, in order for the producer to contact the Customer and establish the satisfaction of the Customer with the products of the trademark of the particular producer and in the case of repair for it to be possible to assess the quality of the repair of the device, the Customer data, such as the first name, surname, contact phone and e-mail in the consent given by the Customer, may be provided to the specific producer.
  • Fulfilment of the binding regulatory enactments. We process Personal data in order to fulfil the obligations set by regulatory enactments, for example in order to ensure data availability to competent authorities, including in order to provide replies to the requests from authorities and courts received within the framework of regulatory enactments, as well as implement the rights provided for the Customers within the framework of the regulatory enactments and liabilities imposed upon us as a merchant.
  • Security of persons and objects. We can process Personal data in order to ensure the security, elimination of an unlawful or other threat, facilitation of the detection of criminal offences in our objects and territory adjacent to them, in order to ensure the security of our employees, Customers, including our objects and visitors of events organised by us.
  • Other purposes, including the purposes for which the Customer has given his/her consent. Data processing may also be performed within the framework of legitimate interests, for example, when the Customer participates in the events organised by us, for example, visits the presentations organised by us or participates in product launch events. In order to provide and improve our Services and develop principal activities, We can process data for statistical purposes and a summary of business information and analysis, in order to enable us to make informed decisions regarding the improvement of activity and protection, as well as to prepare reports on the results of our commercial activity.

In all cases We only process Personal data to the extent it is necessary for the purpose, considering the Privacy of every person.
