Dear users,

In accordance with the laws and rules concerning the collection and processing of data under the General Data Protection Regulation, Czechitas would like to inform you of its data practices. On this page, we outline what is considered personal data, what personal data is collected, when personal data is collected, why and how personal data is processed, and what personal data is secured by Czechitas.

Any data requested by Czechitas is limited only to that which is necessary and justified (e.g. responding to an inquiry, fulfilling an order, providing a service, etc.). We do not process personal data for purposes other than those which are specified. When the need for processing personal data ceases, we will always delete the data at issue. 

If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact us by email at mojeudaje@czechitas.cz .

1. Personal data controller

Your data is processed by the Czechitas Edu z.s., with its registered office at Václavské náměstí 837/11, Nové Město, 110 00, ID number 22834958, entered in the Federal Register kept by the Municipal Court in Prague, Section L, Insert 60955 (hereinafter: " Czechitas ").

As Czechitas is not a controller whose activity corresponds to the description pursuant to Article 37 (1) of the General Regulation on Personal Data Protection, we do not appoint a Data Protection Officer. You can exercise your rights related to your personal data at any time at the above address, or electronically via mojeudaje@czechitas.cz .

2. Processed personal data

We only process personal data that you provide to us in connection with registration and participation in our workshops or other events; based on partnership or similar cooperation with us at these events; and based on your activity on our website.

Registration data includes

  • Name and surname
  • E-mail
  • Telephone number
  • Age in the form of a certain age range (a large part of our workshops is targeted at certain age groups of participants, we also collect it anonymously for statistical purposes)
  • Gender (serves within the goals of our activities as one of the criteria for selecting participants for workshops)
  • City of origin (used for statistical purposes, according to which we decide in which cities we will organize workshops)
  • Occupation / school (serves as one of the criteria for selecting participants for workshops within the goals of our activity)
  • Name and surname, e-mail and telephone number of contact persons from your company, which you state with the consent of these persons in case you fill in our form for partnership cooperation
  • Photographs and audiovisual recordings of the workshops you will attend, subject to your consent. If you do not give us your consent, we will sit you back during the workshop and our photographer will be instructed not to show you in the photos. Photos will be published on our websites and social networks, or websites and social networks of our verified partners.
  • Photographs and audiovisual recordings of other Czechitas events taken on the basis of our legitimate interest. You will always be notified of the event in advance at the photo shoot. These photos will be published and passed on to pre-verified partners only to a very limited extent, you will never be in detail in the published photos, on the contrary, only photos of larger groups and groups of people will be published.
  • Curriculum vitae and the data stated in it (Curriculum vitae are required only within the applications at the Digital Academy and are also used to select suitable participants. Curricula vitae are kept only for the duration of this selection).
  • Feedback from a workshop or other event.
  • If you participate in a certain Czechitas survey, we process the data filled in anonymously for statistical purposes. In certain cases, we may ask you for your e-mail address, but we will not process it together with other data. It serves only to prevent the completion of a large number of answers by one person, or to send (anonymous) survey results if the participant requests them.
  • In connection with applying for the Czechitas Award, we also process information about your bachelor's thesis (title, annotation, date of defense).
  • Other personal data that will be published as part of your story on the Czechitas website and social networks with your consent.

  • Birthdate
  • Health insurance company
  • Residence
  • Name and surname of the legal representative
  • Legal representative's email
  • Phone of the legal representative
  • Data on the special health needs, health restrictions and specific diagnoses of the participant. This information is necessary so that we can adapt the course of the event to the child's needs (e.g. hiring a special pedagogical assistant, adjusting the program, offering an alternative food/beverage menu, providing suitable facilities,  or instructing a health professional to give the child required medication in the correct manner). These data do not serve as a criterion for selecting any participants.
