However, access to such data is provided by the system administrators only to the employees whose communication devices were used in the calls.

Each processing of personal data carries certain risks. These may be different with respect to the extent of the data being processed and the way they are used in processing. Please find below certain best practices that can help protect your data:

  • If you provide us with your data, always review whether the data should be provided. In particular, you should carefully consider providing data relating to your personal life and its aspects unrelated to the purposes for which you are providing information to be disclosed (e.g. your comments under press articles, etc.). If you feel that our company requires too much information from you, please contact us to verify the adequacy of our request.
  • If you provide us with personal data of third parties (of your family members or other employees of your enterprise, etc.), consider whether this transmission is necessary and needed. If necessary, please request the consent of such third parties.
  • If one of our colleagues asks you to provide us with information, do not be afraid to ask if this is necessary and if you cannot achieve the goal of processing even without this information.
  • Persons under the age of 18 are particularly vulnerable. If data tranfers concern persons under the age of 18, it is necessary to consider all the circumstances very carefully. At the same time, it is necessary to consider whether such persons or their legal representatives (e.g. parents) need to provide consent to transfer of such data. If you are a person under the age of 18, if you have any doubts as to whether you are able to make the right decision, discuss the matter with your parent or contact us separately.
  • If you are logged in with your password, please always use a unique strong password that you will not use for other devices and websites. Do not tell anyone nor pass on your password to another person, not even to our employees. We will never ask you for your password, so please beware of the various e-mail messages containing prompts for a password, even if signed on behalf of LOVOCHEMIE. It is likely to be a phishing e-mail to con you to give away your password for the purposes of misusing the password by a third party.
  • If you send us confidential information, try to use a secure way of communication, such as encryption of the file and handing over the password via another communication channel.
  • If you feel that our company does not fulfilled all its obligations, an unauthorized data leak has occurred or someone wrongfully passes for our coworker, please let us know as soon as possible, either electronically to our e-mail address or by mail to our address Lovochemie, a.s. seated at Terezínská 57, Lovosice 410 02. 
  • We try to keep these guidelines up to date. That is why we will make adjustments to this document from time to time. We will inform you separately about any more significant modifications, but it is a good idea to read these rules again from time to time.
