The purpose: Fulfilment of the contract
We process personal data through our application mainly for the purpose of intermediating conclusion of the contract on transport between the customer of the transport services and the carrier. To achieve this, it is necessary mainly to:
- identify the customer of the transport services and identify the carrier (his driver) in the extent necessary for provision of services through application, including finding and assignment of the driver for due and effective fulfilment of the customer´s request,
- find out the current location of the customer of the transport services that will provide the carrier with the information on the place of delivery,
- find out the current location of the carrier that will provide the customer of the transport service necessary information on the estimated time of service provision,
- ensure fulfilment of rights and obligations by the customer of transport services and the carrier, e.g. for the purpose of making a non-cash payment for the provided transport service,
- enable notifications regarding the process of transport services provision through the application, e.g. notification on the arriving or waiting vehicle
- provide information on the transport carried out, mainly in the extent of the identification details of the customer of the transport services, itinerary, time of transport and the price of transport.
In relation to drivers of the carrier:
Personal data of drivers, including data stated in the submitted documents, are processed for the purpose of concluding and fulfilment of the contract on intermediation, including verification of the driver’s qualification for the provision of transport services and suitability of the vehicle for this activity.
The purpose: Fulfilment of statutory obligations
We process personal data also for the purpose of fulfilling invoicing and other obligations pursuant to applicable legal regulation, mainly the Act on Accounting, Act on Value Added Tax, etc. In such case, provision of personal data is a statutory requirement and the failure to provide personal data would result in the objective impossibility of providing services, i.e. the necessity to stop provision of services due to the breach of law.
The purpose: Upgrade of the controller´s application and protection of clients
One of our legitimate interests is a continual improvement of the application, mainly improvement of the application design and optimalization of its content and functions, as well as protection of customers of the transport services intermediated through the application and also protection of carriers. Therefore, we use the personal data also for the following purposes:

- promotion of news regarding the application;
- ad hoc monitoring of observing the terms and conditions of the application use and revealing the breaches.
The purpose: Marketing
Another of our legitimate interests are selected marketing services, such as:
- direct marketing of our own products and services to the existing users of application, whereas the recipient of the electronic mail must have the possibility in each e-mail to refuse at any time, free of charge and in a simple way having his data used for such purposes;
- monitoring birthday date of registered application users;
- re-activation with the intent to monitor the application user for further use of services, e.g. by sending a promotion coupon with a price reduction for further purchase;
- segmentation – based on what services the application user uses, he will be sent newsletters with information on similar services;
- upselling – based on the history of orders, when completing the order (in the process of payment) the user may be recommended a service for the future.
What personal data do we process?
During usage of the application we gain and process personal data of customers of the transport services and personal data of the carriers providing transport services.
Both parties may use our application only after a successful registration and provision of all required data. In the registration process, it is necessary to fill out the registration form where the customer of the transport services states: basic identification data such as e-mail address and password, telephone number, invoice details and a copy of the extract from the Commercial Registry or Trade License Registry, and the carrier states: basic identification data including e-mail address and password, telephone number and invoice details, a copy of the extract from the Commercial Registry or Trade License Registry, while the carrier may also state, if he wishes so, to publish confirmation on his CMR insurance, and regarding the driver the carrier states: name, surname, e-mail, photography and telephone number.
Apart from the abovementioned details submitted by the customer of the transport services or carrier through the application, we gather certain technical details of the mobile device or PC also automatically, mainly the IP address, operation system of the device, type of internet search engine.
In order to use the mobile application SeekApp Driver, it is necessary to process the location geographic data of the carrier’s driver by means of locational sensors (e.g. GPS) of mobile devices. The application periodically updates the location of the driver’s communication device for the purpose of viewing the customer who ordered the service. The driver can turn off the application on his mobile device at any time, which prevents the application from accessing location details.

For this purpose we provide customers with the following driver data: name, surname, photography, e-mail, phone number and current location, and the confirmation on carrier’s CMR insurance if the carrier uploaded such confirmation in his profile, and for this purpose we provide drivers with the following customer data: name, surname of the customer or his contact person, telephone number and e-mail. It is also possible to provide additional data, which depends on the settings that the user himself entered into the application directly.
We process your personal information in the necessary extent in accordance with the legality principle and principle of minimization of personal data processing also through intermediaries who provide us with contractual obligations and provide services related to the application. These persons perform certain activities on our behalf, e.g. sending PUSH notifications regarding the state of service provision and in case of using the application through a mobile device, sending e-mail notifications and advertising offers, processing card payments and providing IT services (technical support and development) and cloud services. These entities will have access to the personal data necessary for performing of these activities but may not use them for any other purpose and they are required to process such personal data in accordance with applicable legal regulations.

Objecting to processing of your personal data
As the data subject, you hve the right to object to processing of your personal data due to a reason relating to your specific situation. You need to submit such a request to the controller in person, via e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to the following address: SeekApp, s.r.o., Jána Milca 3775/52, 010 01 Žilina, Slovak Republic.
As the data subject, you have the right to object processing of personal data relating to your person, for the purpose of direct marketing including profiling in the extent that is related to the direct marketing. If you object processing of personal data for the purpose of the direct marketing, the controller may not continue processing your personal data for the purpose of direct marketing.
In case of such an objection, we will cease to process your personal data, unless the necessary reason for its further processing or the grounds for proving, claiming or defending legal claims are established.
Automated individualized decision-making including profiling
Your personal data will not be used for automated decision making and will not be processed by an automated form using personal data for assessment of certain personal features or characteristics relating to the natural person, mainly for analysis or prevention of features or characteristics relating to the natural person.
Personal data of drivers, including details from submitted documentation, are processed for the purpose of concluding and fulfilling a contract on intermediation, including verification of the driver’s qualification for provision of transport services and suitability of the vehicle for such activity. For the purpose of selecting a suitable driver for the customer of the transport service we do not make a decision based on automated processing of personal data of drivers that would result in selection of drivers based on certain criteria for conclusion of certain criteria for conclusion of contract on transport with the customer (the so called automated individual decision-making).
Through our application, the customer of the transport services can see all prospective carriers (and vice-versa, the carrier may see all prospective customers), who meet the criteria stated through the filter set by the application user, which does not result in any automated selection of drivers or customers of transport services (potentially leading to discrimination) based on a certain criterion assessed automatically, e.g. driver distance from the place of delivery or customer assessment, ratio of accepted order, etc. Such a process does not result in selective showing of orders only to a certain group of drivers or selective showing of drivers only to a certain group of customers, or eventually even termination of mediating the transport for selected carriers or customers.
The selection is carried out only based on the filter that is set according to the individual requirements set manually by the customer of the transport services or carrier according to their current or future possibilities. Therefore, the generated results are not a result of automated processing, but a result of selection performed based on the criteria that are set in each individual case by a concrete human intervention – on the part of the carrier or the customer of transport services.
How to revoke your consent to personal data processing?
Your personal data will be processed for the purpose of marketing only if you consented to such processing when providing us your personal data. However, this holds true only if we do not process your personal data on the basis of our legitimate interests. If you consented to processing of your personal data for the purposes of marketing, you may revoke such consent at any time, in person or via e-mail to: email@example.com or by mail to the following address: SeekApp, s.r.o., Jána Milca 3775/52, 010 01 Žilina, Slovak Republic.
Following consent revocation, your personal data will not be processed any further and will be deleted without any undue delay. Consent revocation is applicable only to those categories of personal data for which the consent was granted, and is not applicable to personal data processed on the basis of legal regulation, contract or on the basis of legitimate interests of the controller.
