What are the purposes and reasons for the processing

We will use your personal data for the following purposes:

  1. For the provision of Sameday services for your benefit

This general purpose may include, where appropriate, the following:

  • Create and manage your account within the Sameday platform;
  • Processing of orders, meaning taking over, validating, transporting, delivering and billing them;
  • Collection of cash on delivery

The processing of your data for these purposes is in most cases necessary for the conclusion and execution of a contract between Sameday and you. Certain processing covered by those purposes is also required by applicable law, including tax and accounting legislation.

  1. To improve our services

We always want to offer you the best service purchase experience through an online platform. To do this, we may collect and use certain information about your Customer behavior, invite you to fill in follow-up questionnaires following the completion of an order, or conduct, directly or with the help of partners, studies and market research.

We base these activities on our legitimate interest in conducting business activities, always making sure that your fundamental rights and freedoms are not affected.

  1. Communications

To keep you informed about the status of your deliveries, we may send you information on the date and time of delivery via e-mail/SMS channels. We always ensure that these processing is carried out in compliance with your rights and freedoms.

You may always stop the processing of your personal data for information purposes by the means described herein, and we will comply with your request as soon as possible. Withdrawing your consent will have the effect of inability to conduct information on the status of the services delivered.

  1. To protect our legitimate interests

There may be situations where we will use or transmit information to protect our rights and business. These may include:

  • Measures to protect the website and users of Sameday platform against cyberattacks;
  • Measures to prevent and detect attempts of fraud, including the transmission of information to the competent public authorities;
  • Measures to manage various other risks.

The general reason for these types of processing is our legitimate interest in protecting our business, being understood that we ensure that all the measures we take guarantee a balance between our interests and your fundamental rights and freedoms.

In certain cases, we also base our processing on legal provisions such as the obligation to ensure the security of property and values provided for by the legislation applicable in this matter.

How long do we keep your personal data

As a general rule, we will store your personal data while you have an account in the Sameday platform. You may always ask us to delete certain information or close your account, and we will comply with these requests, subject to the retention of certain information including after the account is closed, in situations where the applicable law or our legitimate interests require it.

If you do not have an account in the Sameday platform, the general rule is to preserve information about orders made for a period of 4 years from the time of completion of the order (“Retention Period”). Similar to the previous situation, it is possible to retain certain data after the expiry of that period, in accordance with applicable law or our legitimate interests, in particular with a view to exercise the rights of the defense in the event of a litigation relating to the services delivered. For this purpose, the data will be kept separate from the data of other customers being stored as backup, encrypted and/or under pseudonym, and will only be accessed in the event of a litigation. Immediately after the Retention Period expires, Sameday will delete your Personal Data and any copies thereof from its systems.

  • Sameday partners and subcontractors;
  • payment/banking service providers;
  • marketing/telemarketing service providers;
  • market research service providers;
  • IT service providers;
  • other companies that we can develop joint market offering programs for our goods and services.

Where we have a legal obligation, or if necessary to protect a legitimate interest, we may also disclose certain personal data to public authorities.

We ensure that access to your data by third parties, private law legal entities, is carried out in accordance with the legal provisions on data protection and confidentiality of information, based on contracts concluded with them.

In which countries we transfer your personal data

We are currently storing and processing your personal data across Romania.

However, from time to time, we may transfer certain personal data to entities located outside Romania. These entities may be located in the European Union or outside the Union, including countries to which the European Commission has not recognized an adequate level of personal data protection.

We will always take action to ensure that any international transfer of personal data is carefully managed in order to protect your rights and interests. Transfers to service providers and other third parties will always be protected by contractual arrangements and, where appropriate, other safeguards, such as standard contractual clauses issued by the European Commission or certification schemes, such as the Privacy Shield for the protection of personal data transferred from the EU to the United States of America.

You may contact us at any time, using the contact details set out above, to learn more about the countries to which we are transferring your data, as well as the safeguards we have implemented with regard to these transfers.

How do we protect the security of your personal data

We are committed to ensure the security of personal data by implementing appropriate technical and organizational measures, in line with industry standards.

We keep your personal data on secure servers using the latest generation encryption algorithms and providing storage redundancy.

For payments we can also use the services of the payment processor PayU. Any payment information is encrypted using SSL technology.

Despite the action taken to protect your personal data, we draw your attention to the fact that the transmission of information via the Internet in general or through other public networks is not entirely secure, with the risk that the data may be seen and used by unauthorized third parties. We cannot be held liable for such vulnerabilities of systems that are not under our control.
