V. PROFILING

5.1 The GDPR Regulation requires the Controller to notify of automated decision-making, including profiling, as referred to in Article 22(1) and (4) of the GDPR Regulation and, at least in these cases, of relevant information on the principles of making such decisions as well as on the significance and the envisaged consequences of such processing for the data subject. With this in mind, the Controller provides information on possible profiling in this section of the Privacy Policy.

5.2 The Controller may use profiling on the Website for direct marketing purposes, but decisions taken on its basis by the Controller do not concern conclusion of or refusal to conclude the Agreement. The use of profiling may, for example, result in a person receiving a discount, being sent a discount code, being offered a Service that may match the person’s interests or preferences, or being offered better terms compared to a standard offer on the Website. Despite the profiling, it is up to the individual to decide freely whether they want to take advantage of the discount or better offer conditions received in this way.

5.3 Profiling involves the automatic analysis or prediction of a person’s behaviour on the Website, e.g. by selecting a particular Service, viewing a description of a particular Service, or by analysing the history of Services purchased to date. The condition of such profiling is that the Controller has the personal data of the given person in order to be able to send him/her e.g. a discount code.

5.4 The data subject has the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or similarly significantly affects him or her.

VI. ONLINE MARKETING – GOOGLE ADS

6.1 The Controller uses Google Ads advertising program operated by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA to conduct advertising campaigns, including remarketing. The Controller performs activities in this scope based on its legitimate interest, consisting in marketing its own products or services.

6.2 When visiting the website, a Google remarketing cookie is automatically left on the person’s device, which, with the help of a pseudonymised identifier (ID) and based on the pages visited by the person, enables interest-based advertising to be displayed. Further processing of the information only takes place if the person have agreed with Google to associate their browsing and application usage history with their account and to use the information from their Google account to personalise the ads that are displayed on the websites.

6.3 If, in this case, the person is logged in when visiting the website on Google, Google will use the data together with Google Analytics data to create and define target group lists for remarketing on different devices. For this purpose, Google temporarily combines the collected information with Google Analytics data to create target groups.

6.4 When using Google Ads, the Controller does not collect any data that would identify a person. Using Google Ads, the Controller is only able to define the groups of recipients whom they would like his ads to reach. Based on this, Google decides when and how it will present the ad to the person.

6.5 In order to use Google Ads, a special Google Ads conversion pixel has been implemented in the website code. The pixel uses cookies from Google LLC for the Google Ads service. From the level of the Controller’s website, these cookies can be disabled by means of a mechanism used to manage cookies. It is possible to manage the ad settings directly from Google: https://adssettings.google.com/.

VII. ONLINE MARKETING – FACEBOOK PIXEL

7.1. In order to conduct effective marketing campaigns and promotion of products and services, the Controller uses the “Facebook Pixel”option, which is provided by Facebook, a social networking service operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave., Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA or, for users who are EU residents – Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”).

7.2 The Facebook Pixel is a piece of code placed on a website. It allows Facebook to identify visitors to the web content as a target group for the display of Facebook advertisements on their social media profiles (e.g. as part of sponsored advertising), which is understood as a legitimate interest (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR).

7.3 As part of the Facebook Pixel function, it is therefore possible to display advertisements published by the Controller on Facebook only to Facebook users who have shown interest in the services or who have certain common coefficients (such as interest in certain topics or products determined on the basis of the website tabs visited, products viewed) that are transmitted to Facebook,

7.4 The Facebook Pixel function helps to understand the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes, showing whether users have been redirected to services after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called conversion, allowing to determine on which devices the user performs the action), to create so-called similar audiences and to obtain comprehensive statistics on website usage.

7.5 During the user’s visit to the website, the Facebook Pixel establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. In this way, the Facebook server is notified that the user have visited the website and Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account.

7.6 Further information about Facebook’s data collection and use, as well as the user’s privacy rights and options, can be found in Facebook’s data protection policy at https://www.facebook.com/privacy/explanation.

7.7 Specific information and details about the Facebook Pixel feature and how it works are available in the Facebook Help section at https://www.facebook.com/business/help/651294705016616.

7.8 This feature can be disabled as shown at either https://www.facebook.com/business/help/565426757256022 or https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads. To do this, you need to log into Facebook.
