Some activity records are conducted in a legitimate interest to prevent overloading or misuse of the service.

Pseudoanonymized data within a legitimate interest

Members' rights

All members can apply the following rights free of charge in the following manner, using the features available in the Network interface.

  • Right to be informed - A member has the right to be informed about his / her rights regarding his or her personal data. This right is met by the availability of these operating conditions, which all members are informed about.
  • The right to obtain a receipt - A member has the right to obtain a confirmation that his or her personal data are processed. This is done by attempting to sign in (not sign up) to the Network using your email address or addresses. If a user account exists for one of its email addresses, it means that it has previously registered as a network member and its personal data is being processed. Otherwise, they are not processed or the Network is unable to determine with reasonable effort.
  • The right to be forgotten - A member has the right to be forgotten and to request the irretrievable removal of all personal data from the Network. He / she will apply this right in his / her profile ( where he goes to "Settings", then "Personal data" and presses the "Deactivate Account" button. In order to prevent abuse of the account deactivation service, for example as a joke or deliberate damage, the physical removal of the data from the account will take place only after a reasonable time interval of days in which it is likely that the member of the deactivation itself would have noticed . Once the account is deactivated, the email address, IP address or IP address or other member data will be pseudonymized using a modern hashed algorithm and salt. This figure uses the Network as a legitimate interest in ensuring that a member with this address can never register, in particular to prevent fraudulent manipulation of accounts, whereby a member with a single email address will gradually deactivate accounts and base new ones for example bypassing the various limitations imposed by the Networks on this account, in particular the limitation of access to discussions due to spam, identity theft or other violation of the Terms of Service. A member's account, no longer personal data, will remain in the legitimate interest of the Network to maintain data integrity (eg in discussions).
  • Right to limit processing - A member has the right to request a limitation on the processing of personal data, which in practice means that his data will be stored only and will not be processed in any other way (eg by reading). His account will appear to be inactive and without personal information. You can apply this right in your profile ( where it goes to "Settings", then "Personal information" and presses the "Restrict the processing of personal information" button. You can then re-enter the account by logging into this account and selecting "Cancel Account Limitation".
  • Right to file a complaint with the supervisory authority - If a member believes that his / her rights have been violated, he / she may report this to the relevant supervisory authority.
  • Right to legal protection against an administrator or processor - A Member is entitled to effective judicial protection if he considers that his rights under this Regulation have been violated.
  • Right to compensation - A member has the right to the payment of damages if it was caused by failure to fulfill the duties of the Administrator. Judicial proceedings for the purpose of exercising the right to reparation shall be brought before the courts competent under the law of the Member State.
  • Right of rectification - A member has the right to correct his or her personal data on the Network if it is no longer up to date, inaccurate or incomplete. Use this right using common tools available on the Network (e.g., editing this data in the "Settings" of your profile).
  • The right to withdraw consent - If the processing of personal data is a member based on consent, the member has the right to revoke this consent at any time. Revocation of consent can be done in "Member Profile Settings" in the "Personal Data" submenu. Revocation of consent is without prejudice to the lawfulness of processing based on consent given prior to his / her removal.
  • Right of access to personal data - In Personal data settings, a registered member can view all personal data stored in the Network. They can download their copy in a structured, machine-readable and exchangeable format (HTML or JSON). Generating this copy will take a reasonable amount of time due to the number of network members and technical capabilities of the Administrator.
  • Right to data portability - A person has the right to transfer his personal data to another administrator. To use this right, use the form on the Privacy Settings page. This transmission is associated with the risks of passing the data to an unauthorized person. The user is authenticated by typing a password, verifying the email to forward the data, and selecting the check box. The network bears no responsibility for such data, especially if a member has accidentally entered another email address. The third party will get contact with a member, typically an email address, to inform him about processing problems.
  • Right to object to processing - A member has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning him / her, on the basis of public or legitimate interest, including profiling for direct marketing. The Member will oppose the direct marketing objection by clicking on the "Unsubscribe" link at the end of each of these emails to terminate the processing.


The network is currently not profiling members. The "Skill" indicator of a member is not profiling, since it only shows the extent of its activity on the network and this value is not based on the processing of personal data.

Knowledge quizzes

If a member perceives as profiling knowledge quizzes, he is entitled to remove his / her results at any time, thereby also exercising his / her right to object. However, quizzes that have been removed will never be run again to reduce fraud (especially when a member tries, quits, and then re-fills it with unfair competition over other members). The results of quizzes are publicly visible in a member's profile and serve to compare knowledge and interests between members. If a member uses ITnetwork s.r.o., his quizzes will be used for profiling, which is a legitimate interest of ITnetwork s.r.o. in order to perform the service. A member may also object to this, which will result in the termination of the provision of employment mediation.

Technical measures

  • There is this document with up-to-date information for members about the processing of their personal data.
  • Only minimum personal information is required, and only data that we do not find threatening (such as favorite literature) are provided.
  • E-mail addresses are verified by double-opt when registering or changing an email, ie by sending a confirmation link to the mailbox. This will significantly limit the possibility of registering a member with a third person without his knowledge.
  • Networking is encrypted using secure HTTPS protocol (SSL).
  • User passwords are stored only as imprints from which the original password can not be retrieved. This effect is enhanced by the use of the so-called dynamic salt, which minimizes the risk of guessing the password using gross computing power.
  • Members' data is not found on the workstations of Administrators or their coworkers, for example, in the stations of the Network's information system programmers. These workers have only a fully anonymized test database on their stations.
  • All data backups by the Administrator are encrypted and stored in EU countries.
  • The network is set so that its content is not stored in the Internet archive. In this way, the rights of "be forgotten" and "restrict processing" are improved. Profiles of deactivated members are marked with headers to prevent caching and data archiving.
  • Maximum use of pseudonymization, especially for inactive accounts.
  • Covering the vast majority of the Network system by automated acceptance tests to ensure its functionality is correct.


In view of the above, we are not aware of the serious risks of unauthorized or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized access to, or unauthorized access to, transmitted, stored or otherwise processed personal data.
