Privacy policy

Your privacy on PragueReferral.cz

The technology driving web sites is evolving quickly – much faster than most users’ knowledge of what is going on behind the scenes.

As a matter of course, every web site is constantly collecting information about how its pages are being used. At a basic level, web servers record all activity in log files, while statistical analysis programs gather aggregated information to help publishers understand how their sites are being used. And when you register with sites your email address and other information you may supply is stored securely for specific reasons, such as sending you newsletters. But as of March 18th 2019 we don’t do that on our website.

Different users will have different levels of interaction with PragueReferral.cz

You may simply browse our content – read our articles, peruse our galleries, search for jobs, and so on – without actively giving us any information about yourself. You may register your Facebook messenger with our chat-bot to be updated on information about new jobs and other updates and offers, in such case we don’t collect nor store any of your personal information as it all is handled by Facebook. Moreover, you have full control over the information our chat-bot has about you – you can simply delete the chat from your messenger and we will immediately lose track of you.

Whichever of these applies to your use of PragueReferral.cz, you should familiarize yourself with the information below and our Terms of Use.

Registration forms and personal data

PragueReferral.cz is a small project and we don’t need to collect big data. Nevertheless, it’s important for us to treat your data with respect and in line with GDPR requirements.

When you interact with us, we collect and use two types of data about users and members of our group: (1) Personal Data – (names and email addresses etc) via which it is possible to identify an individual from that information; and (2) Aggregated Data – being all other information that relates purely to generic statistics such as traffic flow and demographics (this usually comes from cookies and Google analytics tools).

Personal Data

PragueReferral.cz will only collect, use and transfer Personal Data about you if you have consented to that collection, use and transfer, explicitly. That, unless PragueReferral.cz believes that such action is necessary to (a) conform to legal requirements (b) protect and defend its rights or property (c) enforce this User Agreement or (d) act to protect the interests of its users or others.
