METHOD OF COLLECTION AND TYPES OF DATA COLLECTED

Some of the services provided by Bellevue require the collection of personal data of users and/or customers, whereas basic data is collected in the following ways:

  1. Directly by the users themselves and/or customers in the manner that the users and/or customers submit them themselves with the consent to the Bellevue as processing man-ager in a certain range of data that is essential for the provision of the relevant services. To provide appropriate services, the user and/or customer is obliged to provide the Bellevue with the following information, which is necessary for the establishment of a contractual relationship to provide a particular service and/or sale of certain products in its range:
  • first and last name;
  • address;
  • e-mail address;
  1. From other sources, that is, from our business partners or publicly available sources (for example, data accessible through access to the telephone book and other publicly available services);
  2. Automatically by visiting our web pages, applications and Web-shop portal, which includes information joined to the network identifiers (Internet protocol addresses and cookie identifiers, such as Google Analytics for tracking user and/or customer interaction).

A cookie is a small data file that is stored on a computer or mobile device when you visit a particular web page. Cookies are used to provide a better user experience to each user and/or customer, to store user and/or customer preferences, to make the website more efficient, as well as to monitor and test the use and visits of the Bellevue’s website. Cookies are also used to track internet usage and create user profiles, and then to display personalised online ads based on user and/or customer preferences.

By switching off and/or blocking the cookie from being saved, the user and/or customer can still browse the Bellevue’s web pages. However, it is likely that some features and/or functionality of the website will not be available to such user and/or customer, or that the time required to access certain features of the website will take longer than usual.

The subject network identifiers may leave traces that, in combination with other identifiers and information provided by the Internet service servers, may serve to identify the user and/or customer. We also collect and process the following information for this purpose:

  • IP address information;
  • data on usage of individual applications and websites;
  • user and/or customer habits data – we create these data for the purpose of profiling users and/or customers.

The amount or scope of personal data that Bellevue collects depends on the type of service Bellevue provides to its customers and/or customers, as well as the legal basis on which it collects data. Bellevue constantly takes care of collecting only the necessary scope of personal data that is necessary to achieve the legally determined purpose for which the data are processed.
