The purpose of the processing of your personal data is to ensure the functionality and security of the Website, as well as to provide other services related to the sale of the Company’s products and services, in particular to ensure the possibility to contact the Company through the Website.

Personal data is collected on the Website in the following scope: name, surname, telephone number, e-mail address, IP address. The disclosure of personal data is not mandatory, but the absence of certain personal data (especially those allowing proper identification of a person and the possibility of contacting them back) may result in a failure to provide a response or other services requiring proper identification of the person on the Website. Personal data processing does not involve the automated data processing within the meaning of Article 22 of Regulation (EU) No. 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council (hereinafter the “GDPR”).

We are entitled to process your personal data without your consent on the following legal basis for the stated purposes:

(a) compliance with the Company’s legal obligations arising from legislation, in particular:

  • fulfilling notification duties towards governmental authorities;
  • fulfilling archiving duties;

(b) conclusion and performance of a contract:

  • personal data is needed, inter alia, for negotiations before the possible conclusion of a contract, so that it is possible to conclude the relevant contract and fulfil the obligations arising thereunder, without disproportionate legal risks;

(c) an existing legitimate interest of the Company, such as:

  • protection of the Company’s rights and interests protected by law;
  • development and improvement of products and services provided;
  • resolving disputes, especially for the purposes of litigation or other disputes.

If you give us your consent, we will process your personal data for the purposes defined in the consent granted to the processing of personal data. These are the purposes for which we cannot process your personal data on any other legal basis, being, inter alia customer care and marketing purposes that go beyond other legal framework for personal data processing.

3. To whom do we pass personal data?

We pass your personal data mainly onto governmental bodies in connection with the fulfilment of statutory obligations that apply to our Company (especially financial authorities). Your personal data may also be passed onto external companies that help us with various activities in which personal data is processed (accounting matters, IT services, marketing services, legal services, etc.). Personal data is always passed onto third parties only if all of the requirements set by legislation governing the protection of personal data are met.

The Company does not intend to transfer the processed personal data within the meaning of Article 13 (1) (f) of the GDPR to a third country (non-EU country) or to an international organisation.

4. How long do we keep personal data?

We process personal data only for a period that is necessary with regard to the purposes of its processing. We continuously assess whether there is still a need to process certain personal data needed for a specific purpose. If we find out that the data is no longer needed for any of the purposes for which it has been processed, we destroy the data; as a rule, we process the personal data obtained from the contact form you have filled in for a period of 14 days.

Personal data processed for the purpose of performing a contract and for the implementation of measures taken before the conclusion of a contract upon data subject’s request are processed for the term of the contractual relationship with the data subject.

In order to fulfil the statutory obligation, personal data is processed for the period specified by the relevant legislation.

For the purposes of protecting the Company’s legitimate interests, we process personal data for the duration of the legitimate interest, unless any event occurs, which results in the earlier termination of processing (e.g. an objection to processing for direct marketing purposes); in order to protect our rights in potential litigation, we usually keep personal data for a period of 4 years from the moment of the first possible raising of a claim in court.

Based on your consent, we process personal data for the period for which the consent was granted or until you revoke the consent.
