If you are a Perzik user, or just visiting our website, this policy applies to you.


If you are a registered Perzik user or a visitor to our website we act as the ‘data controller’ of personal data. This means we determine how and why your data are processed.

Here’s when and how we do this:

Data on how you use Perzik
Your URL clickstreams (the path you take through our site), page response times, download errors, how long you stay on our pages, what you do on those pages, how often, and other actions…

What about really sensitive data?
We don’t collect any “sensitive data” about you (like racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious/philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, genetic data, biometric data, health data, data about your sexual life or orientation, and offences or alleged offences) except when we have your specific consent, or when we have to to comply with the law.

What about children’s data?
Perzik is a service directed to and intended for use only by those who are 18 years of age or over. We do not target Perzik at children, and we do not knowingly collect any personal data from any person under 18 years of age.

How and why we use your data
Data protection law means that we can only use your data for certain reasons and where we have a legal basis to do so. Here are the reasons for which we process your data:

Keeping Perzik running
Managing your requests (like inviting users), login and authentication, remembering your settings, hosting and back-end infrastructure.

Legal basis: contractlegitimate interests

Legal basis for this data usage: consent

Here is what each of these “legal bases” mean:
You have given clear consent for you to process your personal data for a specific purpose.

You can change your mind!
If you have previously given consent to our processing your data you can freely withdraw such consent at any time. You can do this by emailing us at .

If you do withdraw your consent, and if we do not have another legal basis for processing your information, then we will stop processing your personal data. If we do have another legal basis for processing your information, then we may continue to do so subject to your legal rights.
