§ 2 Basis for processing, purposes and storage of personal data

  1. We process your personal information in accordance with the laws and regulations under both the United States as a whole and individual state privacy laws, including the U.S. Privacy Act of 1974 (and its subsequent amendments), the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), the Gramm- Leach-Bliley Act (to the extent it allows entities the right to opt-out of data transfers to third parties), the Federal Trade Commission Act of 1914 (to the extent judgments under it affect users’ right to online privacy under Section 5), California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (to the extent it covers users originating in the State of California), Massachusetts Data Privacy Law (S-120) (to the extent it covers users originating in the State of Massachusetts), New York Privacy Act (S5642) (to the extent it covers users originating in the State of New York), Hawaii Consumer Privacy Protection Act (SB 418) (to the extent it covers users originating in the State of Hawaii), Maryland Online Consumer Protection Act (SB 613) (to the extent it covers users originating in the State of Maryland), North Dakota (HB 1485) Act (to the extent it covers users originating in the State of North Dakota).
  2. In the case of processing of personal data on the basis of an e-mail or a complaint sent by the user, such processing shall be carried out in accordance with which processing is necessary in order to take action at the request of the data subject.
  3. In the case of obtaining a separate consent of the user, his personal data can be processed by the administrator also for marketing purposes, including in order to send commercial information electronically to the e-mail address specified by the user.
  4. In the case of conclusion and performance by the Administrator of a sales contract or a contract for the provision of services, the other party shall be obliged to provide the data necessary for the conclusion of the contract (which is a contractual requirement, and in terms of tax numbers also a statutory requirement) and for this purpose the Administrator processes personal data.
  5. In the case of research and analysis for the purpose of improving the performance of available services (e.g. tracking tools), the user’s consent is indicated as the basis for data processing.
  6. Users’ personal data are stored no longer than necessary to achieve the purpose of processing, i.e. until the withdrawal of consent if the processing is based on such consent, until the statute of limitations of claims of the Administrator and the other party for the execution of concluded agreements (in the case of sales contracts/service contracts, 2 years, counting from the end of the year) and until the execution of the inquiry directed by e-mail or the completion of complaint handling.
  7. To the extent necessary for the proper functioning of the website, its functionality and the proper performance of the payment operation (if such is carried out by the website), the website uses the User’s metadata. Metadata means the process of reading and recognizing by the website’s IT system the configuration and components of the computer used by the user in order to adjust the website to its capabilities and to establish a secure connection between the user’s computer and the website. It is important to note that this metadata cannot identify you personally and is not harmful to any data stored on your computer. Nevertheless, the User is entitled to withdraw his or her consent to the processing of metadata at any time by configuring his or her browser accordingly or by downloading the relevant plug-in provided by the browser’s manufacturer. To do so, please consult the software manufacturer and its recommendations.
  8. The Administrator may use profiling for direct marketing purposes, but the decisions made on its basis by the Administrator do not concern conclusion or refusal of a contract or the possibility of using electronic services. The use of profiling may result, for example, in a person being granted a discount, being sent a discount code, being reminded of unfinished purchases, being offered a product that may match the person’s interests or preferences, or being offered better terms than the standard offer. Despite the profiling, it is up to the individual to decide whether they want to take advantage of the discount or better terms and make a purchase. Profiling consists in automatic analysis or prediction of a given person’s behavior on the Administrator’s website, e.g. by adding a particular product to the shopping cart, browsing a particular product page or analysis of the previous activity history on the website. Such profiling is conditioned by the fact that the Administrator has the personal data of a given person in order to be able to send him/her e.g. a discount code.
  9. To the extent necessary for the proper functioning of the website, its functionality, the website may, when used by the User, collect other information, including but not limited to:
    1. IP address,
    2. device, hardware and software information, such as hardware identifiers, mobile device identifiers (e.g., Apple Identifier for Advertising [“IDFA”] or advertising identifier on an Android device [“AAID”]),
    3. platform type,
    4. settings and components,
    5. installed software,
    6. presence of necessary plug-ins,
    7. approximate geolocation data (compiled from IP address or device settings),
    8. browser data, including browser type and preferred language.
  10. Having regard to the nature, scope, context and purposes of the processing and the risk of violation of the rights or freedoms of natural persons of varying probability and gravity, the Administrator shall implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure that the processing is carried out in accordance with the Regulation and to be able to demonstrate it. These measures shall be reviewed and updated as necessary. The Administrator shall apply technical measures to prevent the acquisition and modification by unauthorized persons, of personal data transmitted electronically.

§ 3 Data sharing

  2. In addition, personal data of service recipients and customers may be transferred to the following recipients or categories of recipients:

§ 5 Cookies

  1. Cookies are understood to be computer data, in particular text files, stored on the end user’s device (usually on the computer’s hard drive or mobile device) used to store certain settings and data by the user’s browser in order to use websites. These files allow for recognition of the user’s device and appropriate display of the website, ensuring comfort during its use. The storage of cookies enables the website and the offer to be tailored to your preferences. The server recognises and remembers your preferences, such as visits, clicks and previous actions.
  2. Cookies include, in particular, the domain name of the website from which they originate, the time of storage on the terminal device and a unique number used to identify the browser from which you connect to the website.
  3. Cookies are used for:
    1. adjusting the content of websites to user preferences and optimize the use of websites,
    2. creating anonymous statistics, which by helping to determine how a user uses websites allow for improving their structure and content,
    3. providing website users with advertising content tailored to their interests.

    Cookies are not used to identify users and their identity is not determined on their basis.

  4. The basic division of Cookies is their distinction into:
    1. essential cookies – these are absolutely necessary for the proper functioning of the website or the functionality you wish to use, as without them we would not be able to provide many of the services we offer. Some of them also ensure the security of the services we provide electronically,
    2. functional cookies – are important for the functioning of the website due to the fact that:
    3. – they serve to enrich the functionality of websites; without them a website will work correctly, but will not be adapted to the user’s preferences

      – they serve to ensure a high level of functionality of the website; without them the level of functionality of the website may decrease, but their absence should not prevent the complete use of the website,

      – serve the majority of website functionality; their blocking will cause that some functions will not work properly,

    4. business cookies – make it possible to implement the business model on the basis of which the website is made available; their blocking will not make the entire functionality unavailable, but may lower the level of service provision due to the website owner’s inability to realise revenues subsidising its operation. Advertising cookies, for example, fall into this category,
    5. cookies for website configuration – they allow setting functions and services on websites,
    6. cookies for website security and reliability – to verify the authenticity and optimize website performance.
    7. authentication cookies – allow you to be notified when you are logged in so that the website can show you relevant information and features,
    8. session status cookies – these cookies enable us to record information about how users use a website. They may relate to the most frequently visited pages or possible error messages displayed on some pages. Session state cookies help to improve our services and make browsing more comfortable,
    9. cookies for website processes – they allow efficient operation of the website and its functions,
    10. ad serving cookies – allow ads to be displayed that are more interesting to users and more valuable to publishers and advertisers; cookies may also be used to personalize advertising, and to display ads outside of websites,
    11. location-aware cookies – Allows you to customize the information displayed to your location,
    12. cookies for analysis, research or audience auditing – allow the owner of websites to better understand the preferences of their users and through analysis improve and develop products and services. Usually the website owner or research company collects information anonymously and processes data on trends without identifying the personal data of individual users,
    13. harmless cookies – includes cookies necessary for the proper functioning of the website and needed to enable the functionality of the website, but their action has nothing to do with tracking the user,
    14. research cookies – used to track users, but do not include information that allows (without other data) to identify a specific user.
  5. The use of cookies to adapt the content of websites to user preferences does not, in principle, mean the collection of any information to identify the user, although this information may sometimes have the nature of personal data, i.e. data allowing the attribution of certain behaviors to a particular user. Personal data collected using Cookies may only be collected in order to perform specific functions for the user. Such data is encrypted in a manner that prevents unauthorized access.
  6. Cookies used by this website are not harmful to the user or the terminal device used by him, so in order for the website to function properly it is recommended not to disable their use in browsers. In many cases, software used to browse the Internet (web browser) by default allows to store information in the form of “cookies” and other similar technologies on the user’s terminal device. The user can change the way the browser uses cookies at any time. In order to do so, the browser settings must be changed. The method of changing the settings varies depending on the software (web browser) used. Relevant instructions can be found on the subpages, depending on the browser you use.
  7. Cookies are also used to facilitate logging into a user’s account, including via social media, and to enable switching between subpages on websites without having to log in again on each subpage. At the same time, Cookies are used to secure websites, e.g. to prevent access by unauthorized persons.
  8. As part of its cookie technology, Administrator may use tracking pixels or clear GIF files to collect information about how users use its services and how they respond to marketing messages sent by email. A pixel is a piece of software code that allows an object, usually a pixel-sized image, to be embedded on a page, which provides the ability to track user behavior on the web pages on which it is deployed. When the appropriate consent is given, the browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the server that stores the pixel, so the processing of data collected by the pixel is done within the framework of the data protection policy of the partner who administers the aforementioned server.
  9. Administrator may use Internet log files (which contain technical data such as your IP address) to monitor traffic on its services, troubleshoot technical problems, detect and prevent fraud, and enforce the User Agreement.
  10. The Administrator informs you that the site does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals; however, you may disable certain forms of online tracking, including certain analytics and personalized advertising, by changing the cookie settings in your browser or using our cookie consent tools (if applicable).
  11. Detailed information on changing the settings for cookies and their independent deletion in the most popular web browsers are available in the help section of your browser and on the following pages (just click on the link):
    1. Chrome
    2. Firefox
    3. Opera

    Under the CCPA, sales are defined to include allowing third parties to receive certain information, such as cookies, your IP address, and/or your browsing behavior, in order to deliver targeted advertisements on the Services or other services. Ads, including targeted ads, enable us to provide you with certain content for free and allow us to make offers relevant to you.

    Depending on the Services you use, we may transfer the following categories of Personal Data to third parties for these purposes:

    1. For online targeted advertising purposes: demographic and statistical information, user-generated content, device information and identifiers, browser and usage data, geolocation, and social media information.
    2. Sharing with third parties to send relevant offers, products, promotions and opportunities: contact and registration information, demographic and statistical information, employment and education data, user-generated content, device information and identifiers, browser and usage data, geolocation.

    If you wish to opt out of our use of your information for such purposes, which are considered “sales” under California law, you may do so as described on the following page: Do Not Sell My Personal Information. You may also request to opt out of the sale by emailing us at contact@bluewhale-press.com. Please note that we do not knowingly sell personal information of minors under the age of 16 without legally required affirmative consent.

    2. Provided access to and/or copies of certain information we have about you.
    3. Have deleted certain information we hold about you.

    Before responding to a request, we will take reasonable steps to verify your identity, which may include, at a minimum, depending on the sensitivity of the information requested and the type of request, verification of your name, email address and physical address.

    You also have the right to designate an authorized representative to make certain requests on your behalf. In order for us to verify an authorized representative, you must provide the representative with a signed, written authorization or power of attorney to make such requests. We may also contact you to verify your identity before processing your representative’s request.

    If you would like more information about your rights under California law or wish to exercise any of them, please email us at contact@bluewhale-press.com.

    You may have the right to receive information about financial incentives we offer (if any). You also have the right not to be discriminated against (under applicable law) in connection with the exercise of certain of your rights. Certain information may be exempt from such a request under applicable law. We need certain types of information so that we can provide the Services to you.
