1. General provisions

1.1 This privacy policy (the ‘Policy’) explains how Knihobot s.r.o. (english website: Bookbot), Company ID No.: 054 00 651, with its registered office at Dukelských hrdinů 359/21, Holešovice, 170 00 Prague 7, registered in the Commercial Register maintained by the Municipal Court in Prague, Section C, Entry 289573 (‘Bookbot’ or ‘We’) collects and treats the personal data of users of the portal available at www.bookbot.com (the ‘e-shop’) and/or of individuals interested in the mediation of sale by Bookbot via the e-shop.

1.2 This Policy describes what personal data Bookbot processes, how and what it uses it for, and how it keeps your personal data secure. This Policy constitutes information within the meaning of Article 13 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data (the ‘GDPR’).

1.3 Under this Policy, personal data is processed in the form of any information that can identify a specific natural person or information that directly relates to such an identified person. The data processed by Bookbot under this Policy may include other information (e.g. anonymised) that is not personal data.

2. Who is the controller of your personal data?

2.1 The controller of your personal data is Knihobot s.r.o. (Bookbot) If you have any comments regarding the processing of your personal data or if you wish to exercise your rights, you can contact us by email at info@bookbot.com.

2.2 Bookbot has not appointed a data protection officer.

3. Why do we process your personal data?

3.1 We mainly process your personal data because the processing of your personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract concluded between us (in particular a purchase contract or a commissioning contract under which we arrange the sale of your goods). Without the provision of the necessary data, the contract cannot be concluded and properly performed.

3.2 In other cases, we only process your personal data for the purposes for which you have given us consent, typically in a web form or within communication with us. The provision of personal data is voluntary, however, without the provision of personal data we cannot deal with requirements and inform you of the measures taken.

4. What personal data do we process?

4.1 We process personal data that you provide to us by filling in order forms or requests for mediation of sale. We process your email, name, surname, telephone number, bank account, information about the condition of books and other goods you give to use for resale, or your company name, VAT number, registered office address or other information you provide to us.

4.2 When you visit the e-shop, we also passively process technical information such as IP address, type of internet browser, operating system or other technical metadata such as time zone settings. Information about your behaviour in the e-shop may be stored in an anonymised form for analysis in order to improve the functionality of the e-shop.

4.3 We also use information about your activity in the e-shop and the offers you have viewed to ensure better e-shop operation and marketing. This data is collected automatically by means of tools using so-called cookies. If you have cookies enabled on your device, this data is also collected via these files. If you do not agree with the processing of cookies, please disable them in your browser settings. Please note that disabling cookies will deactivate some basic functions, such as adding items to your basket.

4.4 Aggregated data and passively collected information can be used to produce general statistical summaries. These summaries are anonymised and do not contain your personal data within the meaning of the GDPR.

5. For what purposes do we process personal data?

5.1 The processing of your personal data is necessary for the performance of a contractual relationship based on a purchase, commissioning or other contract and the exercise of the rights and obligations arising from them; without the provision of this data, the contract cannot be concluded and performed by us.

5.2 We also process your personal data for the purpose of keeping records of e-shop customers and records of goods sold, administration of the user account of a registered e-shop customer, customer care (handling complaints or claims, handling queries regarding the e-shop, etc.), customer evaluation of the e-shop (if you provide it), the performance of marketing activities (e.g. displaying advertisements, remarketing, conducting analyses, etc.) and, in specified cases, direct marketing. We also use information about your activity in the e-shop to ensure better functionality of the e-shop.

5.3 We may also process your personal data for the purpose of check by public authorities.

6. What about automated decision-making and profiling?

6.1 Your personal data is not subject to automated decision-making, including profiling within the meaning of Article 22(1) and (4) of the GDPR.

7. Who do we pass your personal data to?
