In connection with the use of the webpage by the User, the Controller collects personal data to the extent necessary to provide individual offered services, as well as information about the User’s activity. Personal data of all the persons using the webpage (including the IP address or other identifiers and information collected via cookies or other similar technology) are processed by the Controller:
- in order to electronically provide the services of making the webpage content available to Users and sharing contact forms – the legal basis for such processing is the necessity of processing to perform the contract (Article 6(1)(b) GDPR);
- for analytical and statistical purposes – the legal basis for such processing is the Controller’s legitimate interest (Article 6(1)(f) GDPR)
in analyzing Users’ activity and preferences in order to improve the functionalities used and the services provided;
- in order to establish and pursue or defend claims, if any – the legal basis for such processing is the Controller’s legitimate interest (Article 6(1)(f) GDPR) in protecting its rights;
- for the Controller’s marketing purposes.
The User’s activity on the webpage, including their personal data, is recorded in system logs (a special computer program for storing chronological records containing information on events and activities related to the IT system intended for the provision of services
by the Controller). The information gathered in the logs is processed in connection with the provision of services. The Controller also processes such information for technical purposes, in particular, the data may be temporarily stored and processed to ensure security and proper operation of IT systems, e.g. backups, testing of IT system changes, irregularity detection or protection against abuse and attacks.
The Controller provides contact options using electronic contact forms. When using the form personal data necessary to contact the User and to respond to the inquiry must be provided. The User may also provide other data to facilitate contact or process the inquiry. Data marked as mandatory is required in order for the inquiry to be accepted and processed, and failure to provide it will result in inability to provide services. Provision of other data is voluntary. Personal data provided via the contact form is processed:
- in order to identify the sender and process their inquiry sent via the form – the legal basis for such processing is the necessity of processing to perform the contract for services (Article 6(1)(b) GDPR);
- for analytical and statistical purposes – the legal basis for such processing is the Controller’s legitimate interest (Article 6(1)(f) GDPR) in keeping statistics of User inquiries made via the Site in order to improve its functionalities.
The Controller processes Users’ personal data in order to carry out marketing activities (the basis for such data processing is pursuit of the Controller’s legitimate interest (Article 6(1)(f) GDPR)), and may include:
- displaying marketing content to the User (contextual advertising);
- email notifications about interesting offers or content, which in some cases contain commercial information;
- other types of activities related to direct marketing of goods and services (commercial information distributed electronically and telemarketing activities).
In order to carry out marketing activities, in some cases the Controller uses profiling. This means that through automatic data processing, the Controller assesses selected factors related to natural persons in order to analyze their behaviors or to design future forecasts. The consent to marketing activities may be withdrawn at any time. If the User consents to receiving marketing information via email, text or other electronic means of communication, the User’s personal data will be processed for the purpose of sending such information. The basis for data processing is the legitimate interest in sending marketing information within the limits of the consent granted by the User (direct marketing). The User has the right to object to data processing for purposes of direct marketing, including profiling. The data will be stored for that purpose for the duration of the legitimate interest of 2 years, unless the User objects to receiving marketing information.

- authentication cookies used for services that require authentication for the duration of the session,
- cookies used to ensure security, e.g. used to detect abuse in authentication,
- cookies used to monitor traffic on the webpage, i.e. data analytics, to create statistics and reports on Site operation.
The duration of data processing by the Controller depends on the type of service provided and the purpose of processing. As a rule, the data is processed for the duration of the service, until the consent is withdrawn or an effective objection to data processing is raised in those instances where the legal basis for data processing is the Controller’s legitimate interest. The duration of data processing may be extended if the processing is necessary to establish and pursue or defend any claims, and afterwards, only if and to the extent required by law. After the lapse of the processing period, the data is irreversibly erased or anonymized.
