We retain the identifiable data we collect directly for targeting purposes for 24 months, after which time we employ measures to de-identify the data by removing unique identifiers and truncating associated IP addresses.

Identifiable data collected for other purposes is held no longer than necessary for our business purposes or to meet legal requirements.

Our Services and/or websites and the communications generated from using and/or registering for our Services and/or platform, such as promotional emails, may contain electronic images known as “web beacons”. Web beacons generally work in conjunction with cookies, and we may use them in the same way we use cookies (see above).

OPTING OUT

We use persistent cookies to manage your opt-out status.

You may visit https://www.adboost.sk/cookie-optout.html to opt-out of data collection from AdBOOST.

The AdBOOST Opt-out is cookie-based. In order to work on your computer, your browser must be set to accept cookies. If you use multiple computers or browsers, you will need to repeat this process for each computer and each browser. If you buy a new computer, change web browsers or clear your AdBOOST cookies, you will need to perform the opt-out task again as by default you are opted-in.

Opting out does not mean you will no longer receive online advertising. It does mean that AdBOOST will no longer collect any data associated with your activities on any of our Clients’ websites.

DIRECT MARKETING

You agree that we may also use your electronic contact details, which may be derived from your past usage of Services, for marketing purposes, i.e. to keep you informed about our Services. These communications shall strictly adhere to applicable legal regulations. You may opt out of marketing communications by disabling this function via the unsubscribe link provided in each email you receive.

PERSONAL DATA SHARING

In line with the provisions of the General Terms and Conditions, we may also provide certain Services aimed at connecting our customers to services, such as e-mail, of other providers such as the providers of advertising platforms. By clicking the “I agree” button that completes the registration process and creates the Account for you or by submitting the respective Order Form to AdBOOST, you provide us with the express consent to share your personal data with these third-party providers for the purpose of fulfilling the Agreement (typically, you as our client provide us with all data required for such connection). We may also provide the data to third parties such as (i) hosting providers; and/or (ii) advertising partners. Any such partners will be available on our websites (typically in our Guides), and such parties will then act as processors of your data. Subject to the previous sentence, your personal data shall not be shared or provided to any other third party without your consent except for the following cases: (i) where AdBOOST is obliged to provide personal data by law or an order of public authority; or (ii) if personal data sharing is specifically allowed by applicable legal regulations.

If third-party providers are established outside of the EU/EEA, you agree that we may transfer your data to these third parties. In such cases, AdBOOST shall ensure that it cooperates only with third-party providers that are located in countries that ensure adequate levels of protection based on the European Commission’s adequacy decision, or that AdBOOST has entered into agreements with corresponding Model Contractual Clauses that ensure adequate safeguards with respect to the protection of the privacy and fundamental rights and freedoms of individuals.

We are committed to storing your data securely. Therefore, we have implemented adequate physical, technical and organisational measures and plans for protecting and securing data collected from you (which do not, however, deprive you of your duty to take proper steps to secure your data, particularly for the transmission of data to our Account). The aim is to eliminate unauthorised or unlawful processing of your personal data or the accidental, unauthorised or unlawful accessing, use, transferring, processing, copying, transmitting, alteration, loss or damage of your data. Despite all efforts to meet the rules set out in applicable legal regulations, it is not possible to ensure the security of your data if it is transferred or transmitted in an unsecured way. We will protect your data in the following ways:using cryptography, where necessary; using password or secured token protection, where necessary; and restricting access to your data (i.e. access to your personal data is granted only to those of our employees or contractors for whom the access is necessary).

RIGHT TO ACCESS AND COMPLAINT

You have the right to be provided with details of the personal information processed by us and to request the rectification or deletion of inaccurate personal data or the restriction of the processing of data concerning you. You may edit your data using your Account, or contact us at privacy@adboost.sk should you have any request about data held. However, where requests from you are manifestly unfounded, excessive or repetitive, we may either: (i) charge a reasonable fee, taking into account the administrative costs of taking the actions requested; or (ii) refuse to act on the request.

If you think that your data has been processed unlawfully, contact us at privacy@adboost.sk and we will undertake to resolve the problem. You have the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority, the Office for Personal Data Protection of the Slovak Republic.

CHANGES OF PRIVACY POLICY

We may, from time to time, change and/or update the terms of this Privacy Policy and you shall be notified hereof via your Account or on our website prior to the change taking effect.
