GDPR: concepts, what data we collect, why we collect it
Below you will find explanations of some key phrases related to data protection. We also define which personal data we collect when you visit and use services ofsmaart.sk and smaart.online, for which purpose this data is used, what are the other conditions for its processing and how you can request erasure of collected personal data. We want to emphasize that we pay special attention to the protection of your personal data and it is used mainly for administrative purposes (accounting, taxes) and to improve our customer services (statistics, sales analyses, advertising). The collection and processing of personal data is carried out on the basis of the consent given by the user or for contractual purposes. If you do not want us to store your personal data, we will delete them immediately and permanently. For more information, see the description below.
Web tracking and analytics
Using Google AdWords, Google Analytics, Google Search Console we track traffic and customer behavior on our site. The data collected includes: time spent on our website, number of clicks, subpages visited, age, gender and approximate location of the user, their anonymized
IP address, browser type, device type (mobile, laptop, tablet, desktop…). The data collected also helps us set up ads through Google AdWords and Facebook. The data is anonymized when compiling statistics.
The IP address is transmitted whenever you make a request to the server. This lets the server know where the response to that request should be sent. Every Internet user has a unique IP address assigned to him by his Internet service provider. As long as the IP address is stored, it is theoretically possible to indirectly identify the owner of the IP address. For this reason, IP addresses are not permanently stored by us or our statistical service providers, but are only used to determine where the server response to your request should be sent. IP addresses in our system are stored anonymously, the last octet is not specified, so that the stored data remains anonymous forever and cannot be further indirectly attributed to a specific user.
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and can be saved by your browser. Cookies cannot be linked to a specific person and do not contain any personal data. This data will only be combined with other sources of data about your person if you have given us your explicit consent at smaart.sk or smaart.online.
Most often we use temporary cookies (so-called session cookies), which will be deleted at the end of the browser session. In addition, there are also long-term cookies (“permanent cookies”) with which we can recognize you as a visitor. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain any viruses.

The data sent in this way contains the following information: date and time of access, URL of the page, IP address, previous URL (so called referrer), amount of data sent, and the User Agent transmitted by the browser (for example, type and version of the browser and operating system used). IP addresses are stored exclusively in anonymous form for evaluation purposes. Evaluations of the data offerings of these Logfiles in an anonymized form serve to identify and correct errors as quickly as possible. Through the processing of this data it is also possible to adjust the server capacity and improve our offer.
