Privacy Notice

Updated 22nd February 2021.

General Information

This Privacy Notice is issued by Chaos Czech a.s., a joint-stock company incorporated under the laws of Czech Republic, seated at Karlovo namesti 288/17, 120 00 Prague, Czech Republic (hereinafter only as “we” or “us”).

We recognize the importance of protecting information collected about you and have adopted this Privacy Notice to inform you about how we process your personal data when you visit our websites or use our products, applications or services (jointly as the “services”). This Privacy Notice defines our institutional approach to personal data processing and data protection and outlines your rights and obligations related to the processing.

Some of our services may provide additional privacy terms that amend or expand provisions of this Privacy Notice. In such case, additional terms take precedence over this Privacy Notice.

When does this Privacy Notice apply?

This Privacy Notice is applicable in situations when we process your personal data on our own behalf. By the wording of the regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016, General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), it means that we act as a “Controller” in respect to your personal data. The notion of personal data is defined by the GDPR, but basically means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person, for example: name, date of birth, residential address, online identifiers such as IP address.

We may also process personal data on behalf of someone else, as a processor. This Privacy Notice does not apply in such situations.

How do we process your personal data?

We process information about you in different ways. Mainly, we obtain personal data directly from you, usually when you register to our services, register to online forums that we administer, or when we provide you services. Certain data is collected automatically, for example when you interact with our services, such as applications or websites. Additionally, we might process personal data when you register to our newsletter, participate in a survey, voting poll, or a consumer competition. In some cases, we may receive or verify information about you from third parties or public resources.

From the information you provide us, we process only personal data to the extent that is necessary for the purpose of the processing. Personal data are processed by automated means, or manually.

Apart from personal data, we collect anonymous information. We might use personal data and anonymous information to generate aggregate information. Anonymous and aggregate information do not identify you as an individual. We may share these types of information with third parties without restrictions.

What personal data do we collect about you?

We collect the following types of information:

Providing your personal data is voluntary, but at the same time, without some of your personal data we would not be able to deliver you products or services that you request. When the processing is permitted directly by law, we do not ask for your consent. Nevertheless, we are obliged to disclose purposes of the processing and put forward legal bases which entitle us to process personal data if such information is not evident from the processing itself.

Without your explicit consent, we process personal data when it is necessary for the performance of a contract. That is, when the personal data are needed to conclude a purchase, license, or another agreement and perform it.

Furthermore, we process personal data when we are obliged to do so directly by law, for example personal data related to financial transactions and accounting, or information provided to public bodies if requested by a court order or a similar measure.

When our or third parties’ legitimate interests are concerned, we process personal data in pursuance of such interests, unless they are overridden by your interests, fundamental rights, and freedoms. In our legitimate interests, we may process personal data to detect a fraud software and software piracy, to create anonymized data sets, perform product usage analytics, check your credit before ordering services, collect debts, send you a limited marketing communication if you are our customer, and in other circumstances to prevent a damage or mitigate a risk of loss to our property, tangible or intangible assets. If you do not agree with the processing that is based on legitimate interests, you have the right to object to it.

Beyond these limits, we may process personal data with your consent. In such circumstances, we will explain to you the purpose and extent of the processing, so you can knowingly and willingly decide to grant us your consent or not. From time to time, we may ask you to take part in surveys, consumer competitions or voting polls. Your decision not to grant us a consent will not have any negative impact on the services that we provide you or products that you have purchased.

Purposes of the processing

Our primary goals in collecting your personal data are to:

Product usage data

In order to support our ongoing development efforts and provide you with a better user experience we may collect IP address and non-personal technical data about the way you use our products. This is sometimes called “Product Usage Analytics”.

By collecting the data we can, for example:

You can opt-out of product usage data collection at any time directly via the Preferences menu within our applications;

The categories of non-personal data that we collect consist of:

You can save the exact list of the non-personal data being transferred to us into a file using a special tool from within our applications. This tool can be accessed through the Preferences menu.

The data is transferred to our servers through the network by encrypted means. Obtaining your IP address is necessary to establish connection with our servers. For statistical purposes, we deduce country and city where the IP originates. We do not try to trace your exact geolocation from the IP address, nor do we make attempts to match the IP address with other data we may have about you (for example the data you give us when you buy a license).

Job applicants

If you apply for a vacancy in our company, we collect and process your personal data during the recruitment procedure. Generally, we will need to know your name, surname, gender, contact details (email address, phone number), details of your qualifications, skills, experience, and employment history. We also process additional information that you include in your CV or complementary documentation. If you are a foreigner, we may ask for information about your entitlement to work in the country. We process your personal data only in relation to the job vacancy that you applied for.

We may ask for your consent with keeping your personal data in our database in order to consider you for relevant vacancies that may be opened in the future and contact you with an offer if we think that you might be interested. The consent is valid for three years, unless expressly agreed otherwise. You have a right to withdraw from the consent anytime.

Unless you have agreed that we may keep your personal data for future vacancies, we will remove your personal data from our database, along with submitted documents in a reasonable time after the vacancy has been filled. Nevertheless, some personal data (such as name, surname, date of birth, state of residence/address, education, and employment history) could be integrated to the reports that have been put together during the evaluation procedure in order to choose the right candidate. We keep these reports to protect our rights and interests against any claims or administrative inspections for the limitation periods.

You are always entitled to know what personal data we process about you. For more information on your rights, go here.

We will not share your personal data outside of our company except in limited circumstances, including:
