Personal data and how to obtain it

Processing of personal data in web site operation

Personal data is not only the basic identification data of a natural person, such as the name, address, telephone number or date of birth, but also a computer‘s IP address and other location data.

When you visit our web site, information about the use of the web site is automatically collected and evaluated. For the purposes of statistical surveys and to ensure the safety and stability of the system, certain data is evaluated and stored on our web server every time you visit our web site. Your web browser will automatically provide data to our web server for technical reasons when you access our web site. Among other things, it is the date and time of access, the URL referring to web sites, the file being viewed, the volume of data sent, the type and version of the browser, the operating system and your IP address. This data is stored separately from other data you enter in the use of our web site. It is not possible to assign this data to a particular person.

Therefore, when operating our web site, your personal data is collected and processed for the purpose of ascertaining the web site visitors‘ rate or the information about the web site traffic, as well as for the purpose of improving the web site content.

In addition to the above, we are collecting and processing only such data that you provide to us by entering it into our contact form within the scope of your name, surname, email address and possibly your telephone number. The purpose of such processing is to handle your inquiry or comments, while your personal data is stored for as long as your inquiry or comment is being processed, but for a maximum period of 3 months.

Processing of personal data in the discharge of the insolvency trustee’s office

When discharging the insolvency trustee’s office, we are collecting and processing your personal data solely in connection with your insolvency proceedings and with the fulfilment of obligations imposed upon us as the insolvency trustee by generally binding regulations.

The processing of your personal data is necessary for any and all activities related to the discharge of the insolvency trustee’s office, for ensuring the proper course of insolvency proceedings and for keeping the insolvency file.

In connection with your insolvency proceedings, we are processing your personal data, which includes, in particular, your identification and contact details and any and all other data submitted to us by the insolvency court. We are also processing data on your property and family circumstances, data on your employment or data provided to us by third parties as part of their obligation to cooperate with the insolvency trustee in compliance with Section 43 et seq. of the Insolvency Act.

We are also processing any and all technical data associated with our mutual communication, i.e. the date, time or duration of our communication and, as the case may be, any other data you submit to us throughout our communication that is significant with respect to the insolvency proceedings concerned. We also process records of our communication in the form of telephone call records and written records. You will always be alerted to the fact that your telephone call is being monitored before starting the conversation. If you do not want your telephone call to be monitored, you can reject the monitoring before you start the conversation and contact us via email at insolvence@zchlegal.cz.

The duration of your personal data processing related to your insolvency proceedings is limited to the period when we actually need your personal data. We will therefore actively process the aforesaid personal data during your insolvency proceedings and we will archive it upon the completion thereof in compliance with generally binding regulations.

Personal data processors

When providing services and discharging the insolvency trustee’s office, we are being assisted only by those processors who provided us with sufficient guarantees that they process personal data according to the same principles that we follow.

In operating the web site, the processors are in particular the operators of webhosting services, server and cloud services and search engine providers who assist Z/C/H Legal to improve and optimize the use of their platforms (e.g., Google Analytics, Mail Chimp).

In discharging the insolvency trustee’s office, the processors are in particular the operators of program or technical support services and providers of services associated specifically with the sale or mediation of sale of real property in insolvency proceedings necessary for the discharge of the insolvency trustee’s office who assist Z/C/H Legal to ensure the proper course of the insolvency proceedings.
