Processing can be manual or automated.

1.2. The Purposes and the Basis for Processing the Personal Data
1.2.1. Processing Based on Contract
PROMIN is processing the personal data of buyers to fulfill the obligations that originates from contract relationship made with buyers (book orders, merchandise). Performing the contractual obligations and exercising rights under the contract, PROMIN is processing the contact personal data of buyers (name, surname, address, telephone number, postal address, e-mail) to meet the following needs: identification of the buyer or member, contract conclusion, supply of ordered goods, delivery of ordered goods to desired address, investigation and analysis of buyer's purchasing habits, and consequently directed marketing. On that basis, the buyer or member receive notifications about interesting offers from PROMIN. Buyer can also receive offers and other information that are adjusted to each buyer separately. Moreover, buyer also receives notifications about resolving any objections and complaints, and information that regards the implementation of the contractual relationship. Additionally, buyer can receive information about execution of debts and for other purposes that are necessary for the implementation or conclusion of a contractual relationship between PROMIN and buyer or member.

1.2.2. Processing Based on the Law
Based on a local legislation (e.g. tax legislation), certain data must be kept for a specified period of time. PROMIN is obliged to keep that kind of data also in case of cancellation the consent for processing of the personal data. The same can be expected, if buyer requests limitation of processing the personal data or terminates the contract with PROMIN. PROMIN will destroy those data after the statutory period passes.

1.2.3. Processing on a Legitimate Interest Basis
PROMIN can process the personal data on the basis of legitimate interest, but only on careful judgment that the interests of PROMIN do not override the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the buyer. Doing so, the reasonable expectations of buyers are taken into account, depending on their relationship with the operator, which is PROMIN. In accordance with the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), the lawful interests of the data manager are those data, which are necessary to prevent fraud, misuse and to recover unpaid contractual obligations from buyers. The personal data of buyers are processing in a limited extent also for direct marketing, on the basis of legitimate interest. In that case the processing of the personal data is limited in time; general offers for a maximum of five years from the last purchase, and in the case of luxury issues the time can be longer exceptionally. The processing of data is subject to strict conditions of applicable law and is carried out in a very limited extent, especially for segmentation and profiling purposes. The collecting of personal data does not reach a great extent in any case. Collection is not intrusive and does not include specific types of the personal data. Data collection is organized in a way that the position of buyer is not subordinated to the data manager. The personal data are not a base for automated or other kind of decision of his rights in any way. Buyer may object for his data to be processed at any time.

1.2.4. Processing the Personal Data on the Basis of Consent
Data processing can base on the consent that buyer is given to PROMIN. PROMIN is processing the personal data of buyers for the following purposes: identification of buyer, notifications about offers and other information, estimations and analysis of buyer responses to addressed offers. To inform buyer the following methods can be used: mail, e-mail, telephone, SMS messages. It depends on the buyer, which method he chose when giving consent to PROMIN for direct marketing purposes.

The buyer, to whom the personal data relates, may withdraw or change his consent at any time, in the same way as the consent was given. The withdrawal of his consent can be alternatively given in other way that is declared by PROMIN. PROMIN is reserving the right to identify the buyer who gives such a request, when a reasonable doubt about his identity exists, in order to properly fulfill his obligation, accordant with the buyer's request. The right to cancel consent of the personal data does not affect to existing relationship with PROMIN that obligated the buyer, unless he settle a debt. Since under aged child can not give consent on his own, the consent may be given one of his parents or legal representative. Such consent is valid as long as one of the parents or legal representative recalls or changes it. The same can perform the child himself, but not until he reaches full age, according to the valid legislation.

In the cases when consent involves direct marketing on the basis of the buyer's profile, PROMIN may carry out buyer profiling on the basis of his past purchases. This allows the buyer to receive a customized offer or information from PROMIN, which suits his taste and habits. The profiling has no legal consequences for buyer in relation to PROMIN, not in terms of obligations or in terms of legal consequences. Profiling, for the purpose of direct marketing, may include the use of birth date.

1.3 Delivering of Personal Data to Third Parties
The personal data of the buyer will be transferred to third parties or in other way only, if this is necessary to perform rights and obligations arising from a sales contract. The basis for data transfer is the legitimate interest of the data manager or explicit agreement of the buyer.

Data will be transferred to:
  • companies that issue credit cards, to payment service providers to process payments and to banks for implementing the buyer's order in purpose to complete the sales contract
  • transport companies, postal services for the purpose of delivery of the ordered products, and to resolve buyer complaints and withdrawing from the contract
  • press companies for the purpose of printing
1.4. Time of Keeping and Processing the Personal Data
PROMIN keeps and processes the personal data of buyers as long as it is strictly necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were processed.

Based on legislation, PROMIN usually keeps data for 5 years from the last purchase.

PROMIN, as the data manager, is obliged to keep specific data for 10 years from their publishing, in accordance with the current legislation (e.g. invoices). The data of participants of prize games are stored only for the time, until the prizes are awarded. After then they are deleted. The personal data of the winners are accepted. They are obliged to be kept according to the valid legislation for 10 years from award.

PROMIN ensures that personal data will be deleted or that access to the collected data will be blocked, after the purpose of data processing is completed or after buyer revokes his consent. Instead of erasing, due to the need for further market analyzes and the investigation of purchasing habits, PROMIN may decide to anonymize some of data. That has to be performed in a way that buyer's data are no longer recognizable.
