.1      For what purpose do we process personal data?

We want to customise the content and recommend goods you are interested in. For this reason, we use the personal data we collect to personalise the content and offers on our website. The marketing offers you see may be selected on the basis of additional information we have obtained about you over time on the basis of contact and demographic information and favourites, as well as other information related to the use of our website.

·         1.4. Customer support and communication

We are constantly striving to improve the services provided by our customer service, and in order to be able to respond to your requests as quickly as possible and provide that service, we need your personal data to successfully process your requests or eliminate potential problems in fulfilling a Purchase Agreement or pahrmacydiscount Agreement. If you contact us by phone, we will record your call with us after prior notice so that we can continue to improve our services.

We also use the personal data we have collected for the purpose of communication with you and its individual adaptation. For example, we may contact you by phone, email, mobile application or otherwise to remind you that you have items in your shopping cart or to help you complete your order. Furthermore, we may contact you to inform you of the current status of your request, order or complaint, or to obtain additional information from you.

1.8.    Improving services

We use your personal data to continuously improve our services and systems, including the addition of new functionalities. We also process personal data in order to make informed decisions using comprehensive analyses and business intelligence, based on our legitimate interest that stems from the freedom of business and the need to improve the services we provide in order to succeed among the competition.

2.      To whom do we transfer personal data?

In most cases, we process your personal data for our own purposes as a controller, which means that we determine the above-mentioned purposes for the collection of your personal data, the means of processing and the proper execution.

We transfer your personal data to our partners only if it is necessary within the performance of a Purchase Agreement, e.g. to ensure payment or transport, as part of the performance of a pahrmacydiscount Agreement, on the basis of a legitimate interest, or if you have given your consent to the transfer in advance.

We also transfer your personal data to our processors, who, of course, comply with the statutory conditions for personal data protection. These processors process personal data according to our instructions and your rights are not affected by this processing. With your consent, we may also transfer your personal data to social networks or marketing tool operators to display targeted advertising on other websites.

·         2.2. Data transfers outside the EU

When transferring your personal data to our processors, in some cases we may also transfer personal data to third countries that are not part of the European Union and that do not ensure an adequate level of personal data protection. However, such transfer will only be performed by us if our processor undertakes to comply with the standard contractual clauses issued by the European Commission, which are available here.


3. For how long do we process personal data and how is it secured?

·         3.1. Security

The personal data we have collected about you and which we process is transmitted to us in an already encrypted form, using the SSL (secure socket layer) encryption system for this transmission. This system ensures that your personal data is safe when your browser communicates with our server. We secure our website and other systems with which we work with appropriate technical and organisational measures against the loss and destruction of your personal data, against access of unauthorised persons to your personal data and against the modification or dissemination of your data.

We are continuously improving this security, and we also require our processors to prove the compliance of the systems they use with the GDPR.

If you register, access to your customer account is possible only after entering the password you have chosen. We do not have access to your password because we store it in an encrypted form that is not decryptable, even for us.

Among other things, we would like to appeal to you that it is essential that you do not disclose your login details to third parties. We recommend that you log out when you are finished with your customer account, especially if you share the device with other users. We do not take responsibility for any misuse of your password unless we cause such a situation directly.


4. How do we use cookies?

We also use cookies so that our website can function properly, and so that our offer is relevant, interesting and user-friendly for you. In order to use cookies, the Internet browser you use needs to support them. Our website works without cookies but to a very limited extent and with the inability to use some basic functions.

Cookies are a standard tool for storing information regarding the use of websites.

Cookies are small text files that are created automatically when you visit each website and that are stored within the browser you use on your computer, smartphone or other device. Thanks to some cookies, we can link your activities on our website until you close the browser. These cookies are automatically deleted when the browser window is closed.

However, other cookies remain in your browser or device for a set period of time and are reactivated each time you visit our website. In addition to cookies, we also use what are called tracking pixels, which are small images invisible to the average user that are based on a similar principle to cookies. The time for which cookies are left in your browser or device depends on the settings of the cookies themselves and also on the settings of your browser. We store data obtained from cookies for a maximum of one year.

·         4.1. What cookies do we use?

The cookies that we use on our website can be divided into two basic types:

    • short-term, called “session cookies”, which are deleted immediately after the end of a visit to our website;
    • long-term, called “persistent cookies”, which remain in your browser or device for a certain period of time or until you delete them manually.

Cookies can also be divided according to their functionality into:

    • essential, which are technical and functional cookies that are important for the basic functionality of the website. Without these cookies, you would not be able to add goods to the shopping cart, place an order or log in to your customer account;
    • analytical, which help us increase the user comfort of our website by understanding how users use it. They also allow us to analyse the performance of different sales channels;
    • remarketing, which we use to personalise the content of ads and their correct targeting.

In practice, we use the above cookies, for example, for:

    • the correct functionality of the shopping cart so that you can complete your order as easily and quickly as possible;
    • remembering your login details so that you do not have to enter them repeatedly;
    • making the best possible adaptation of our website to your requirements, thanks to the monitoring of traffic, your movements on the website and the functions you use;
    • finding out what ads you view so that we do not show you ads for goods in which you are not interested in the future.

Some cookies, including their content, may collect information which may subsequently be used by third parties and which, for example, directly supports our advertising activities (called “third-party cookies”). For example, information about the products purchased on our website may be displayed by an advertising agency as part of the display and customisation of advertising banners on the websites you view. However, these cookies are anonymised for third parties and you cannot be identified according to this data.

·         4.2. How can you restrict cookies?

The setting of the use of cookies is part of the Internet browser you use; most browsers automatically accept cookies by default. Cookies can be completely blocked by your browser or restricted to the types you select. However, this will also limit the operation of our website and you will not be able to use the functions we offer in full, including logging in to your customer account.

Alternatively, you can also use the anonymous browser mode, which does not completely prevent the use of cookies but anonymises them better and does not store the history of websites you have visited.

Information on the options for setting preferences for cookies can be found at the links below or in other documentation of Internet browsers:
