Basic terms and informationBefore we go onto describe why, when, how and what personal data are processed by the Quizstone, we have to explain some basic terms regarding the protection of personal data. We believe you will gain a better understanding and insight into the reasons why the Quizstone process the personal data in the particular manner.
Personal dataPersonal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (data subject). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier (name, number, online identifier) or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
Special categories of personal dataThis is just a new term for sensitive personal data. This category covers personal data which may harm the data subject in society, at work, at school or which may result in his or her discrimination. Such personal data usually reveal his or her racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or union membership, and involve the processing of genetic data, biometric data for the purpose of uniquely identifying a natural person, data concerning health or data concerning a natural person’s sex life or sexual orientation.
Data subjectA data subject is a natural person to whom the personal data relate and who can be identified or is identifiable by the personal data.
Controller of personal dataThe controller is a natural or legal person who determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data and who is primarily responsible for the processing. Unless otherwise stated in these rules or specific service conditions, Quizstone is the controller of personal data.
Processor of personal dataThe processor is a natural or legal person which processes personal data on behalf of the controller on the ground of the controller’s instructions.
Processing of personal dataProcessing means any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
Which legal regulation covers personal data processing?The processing of personal data is governed primarily by Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council (EU) 2016/679 (“GDPR”). National regulations may in certain cases (where allowed by the GDPR) define different rules. Such rules are laid down in Act no. 101/2000 Coll., on the Protection of Personal Data, as amended by later regulations.
When is it possible to process personal data?For the processing of your personal data to be lawful, at least one of the requirements specified in Article 6 of GDPR must be satisfied. In the case of special categories of personal data at least one of the requirements specified in Article 9 of the GDPR must be satisfied. In both cases the principles of personal data processing mentioned in Article 5 of the GDPR have to be complied with.

A typical requirement is the achievement of a certain age.
