When you use Kompare Deals and its features or when you contact us, we may collect and process any data and information that you provide to us voluntarily, that is collected automatically, or that we receive from other sources.
This includes any information you provide to us yourself, such as information provided when you fill out a search form, subscribe to our marketing and commercial communications, enter your account information, enter into contractual relationships with us related to the usage of some of our products, send us a query or feedback or other social media functions and our marketing special project, complete promotions or surveys, or report a problem.
Voluntarily provided data may include the following:
This mostly consists of online identifiers or technical facts about your connection point. For example, device and connectivity information, such as IP address (Internet Protocol), unique device identifiers (such as the IMEI for phones, MAC address of the device’s wireless network interface), mobile network information, your mobile operating system, the type of browser you use, as well as time zone and language settings. Other types of configuration data include browser type, version, language settings, browser plug-in types, and browser versions.
This data is automatically collected when you visit our websites and/or use our services/features. In some cases, this data can be created by our software or third-party programs and integrated into komparedeals.com software.

This category includes different types of data, mostly online identifiers, which we receive from third parties as well as our technical, analytical, marketing, and other partners.
For example, we might insert advertising on our partner websites, social networks, or advertising networks that may categorise komparedeals.com users with similar characteristics or interests into non-personally identifiable data segments, which may then be offered to their clients, visitors, and subscribers.
We might obtain and record information that an ad was requested or shown, how many times said the ad was shown, the target geo of said ad (which will not include an IP address or specific personally-identifiable location information), and any user interactions with said ad or information about the page on which it appears. This information is used for statistical purposes, analysis, reporting, and troubleshooting. In most Data Processing situations, such information does not allow us to identify you as a Data Subject and will be processed with an appropriate level of protection and limitations, which the data source establishes.

Profiling.

To achieve these goals, we can create profiles of our users based on the data collected in their interactions with komparedeals.com in order to provide our service in the best possible way or provide personalised ads and marketing communications if we’ve received your consent. In any case, we never use collected data to make automated decisions that significantly affect your interests or rights as a Data Subject.
