User’s location

For the usage of DolMark Services it is necessary that the Operator identifies the users’ current location. This allows DolMark to show listings located close to the user and is also used when sellers publish their advertisements to indicate the place where the item is located. In order to avoid the identification of a user’s actual exact location, an approximate location of the seller is shown in the published listings.

DolMark makes available its social channels (e.g. Facebook) to allow users to express their opinions and receive assistance regarding the services offered. Personal data is processed according to the privacy policy of the reference social networks as well as the DolMark privacy policy, which is always available on our official pages.

The processing of such data takes place solely for the purpose of responding to requests sent by users and for the purpose of developing and improving the service pursuant to the previous point "Use of personal data (purpose of registration)".
