Personal data protection and business notifications sending

The Buyer agrees with their personal data processing by the Seller (name and surname, address, e-mail address, telephone number – collectively referred as “personal data”), for the purpose of their use and further processing due to fulfilment of the Seller’s contractual obligations and for the purpose of performing the Seller’s business, services and advertising activities. The Buyer agrees to data processing for the period during which the Seller will develop their business activity. The personal data will be collected, processed and stored in accordance with valid legal regulations of the Slovak Republic, in particular in accordance with Act. no. 122/2013 Coll. on the Protection of Personal Data, as amended.

The Buyer’s personal data shall not be provided without their consent to a person other than the Seller who may assign a third party as a processor. In this case the Seller’s intermediary is the company Energa Invest, s.r.o., K rieke 4, 949 05, Nitra. The Seller will ensure the protection of personal data against misuse.

The Buyer has the right to request the information from the Seller about the method of processing their personal data and the Seller is obliged to inform them about this without undue delay. For the provision of the information in question, the Seller may demand from the Buyer an adequate reimbursement of the material costs incurred.

The Buyer has the right to request an explanation or correction if he believes that the Seller is processing their personal data in violation with the law. Otherwise, the Buyer has the right to contact the Office for the Protection of Personal Data of the Slovak republic.

A Buyer who does not consent to the processing of their personal data for the purpose set out in Article IX. par. 9.1. of these GTC, in addition to the purpose of processing personal data for the purpose of fulfilling the contractual obligations, he may request the Seller in writing to remove them from the database.

By expressing consent to these GTC, the Buyer simultaneously agrees to the sending of the Seller’s commercial notifications by electronic means. The Buyer has the option of simply refusing the consent when sending each individual message.
