LEGAL BASIS, PURPOSES OF DATA PROCESSING AND RETENTION PERIOD FOR PERSONAL DATA
Personal data are processed by the Controller when:
the data subject gave their consent for the processing of their personal data for one or more specified purposes (Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR);
the data processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract (Article (6)(1)(b) of the GDPR);
processing is necessary for the purposes of legitimate interests pursued by the Controller or by a third party, except in situations when the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject (requiring the protection of personal data) take precedence (Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR).
The data of the Website visitors can be processed for the following purposes:
network traffic analysis, ensuring security within the Website and adjusting the content to the needs of users on the basis of a legally justified interest of the Controller (Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR).
answering the questions, submitting an offer that has been ordered and conducting correspondence in order to settle some matters – on the basis of the user’s consent and the Controller’s legitimate interest, i.e. fulfilling the users’ requests (Article 6(1)(a) and (f) of the GDPR).
The Controller may place marketing information about his products or services on the Website. These content shall be displayed by the Controller in accordance with Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR, in accordance with the Controller’s legitimate interest consisting in the publication of contents related to the services provided and the promotional contents of the actions in which the Controller is involved. At the same time, such an action does not violate the rights and freedoms of the users; the users expect to receive such content and sometimes even count on it or it is their direct purpose for visiting the Website.
Personal data shall be stored until the consent is withdrawn, the issue that required storage of personal data is resolved or for the period necessary to achieve the purpose for which the data was obtained on a specific legal basis, and then until the expiry of the statute of limitations for the parties’ claims related to the execution of the purpose.
The Controller processes contact details of e-mail correspondence senders and addressees, contained in the content of this correspondence, for the following purposes:
enabling the senders and addressees to contact the Controller via e-mail and enabling the Controller to contact the addressees;
documenting arrangements made with customers, contractors or other persons;
receiving letters, applications and requests – e.g. charges, complaints, other requests – in an electronic form;
protection against claims and pursuit of claims (if there are any).
The legal basis for processing the data contained in the e-mail correspondence is:
legally justified interest of the Controller and senders of electronic messages (Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR) – in relation to incidental correspondence, consisting in enabling electronic contact with the Controller;
the necessity of data processing for the purpose of performing a contract with customers or contractors (Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR) with regards to the correspondence conducted in order to carry out the contract;
voluntary consent – if special categories of data feature in the correspondence sent. If the sender has not included their consent in the correspondence, they shall be asked to provide a separate consent, as this is a prerequisite for the processing of special categories of data in accordance with the GDPR. Consent may be withdrawn at any time, without the need to provide any reason for it, but without affecting the lawfulness of data processing before the consent was withdrawn;
a voluntary consent granted by means of an explicit confirmatory action – if the sender of the message requests the provision of some information concerning the Controller’s brand, their products or services, the answer given to the sender will contain the requested information; the fact of sending an inquiry will mean granting consent for the Controller to send the sender commercial information to the e-mail address provided by the sender, to the extent necessary to provide an answer (Article 10 of the Act on Providing Services by Electronic Means); the consent may be withdrawn at any moment without the need to provide any reason, but commercial information sent after the inquiry has been sent, and before the withdrawal of consent, will be sent in accordance with the law; withdrawal of consent may prevent a full answer to the question asked;
the Controller’s legitimate interest in pursuing or defending their claims in accordance with the applicable provisions of law, in particular the Civil Code (Articles 6(1)(f) and 9(2)(f) of the GDPR).
The content of correspondence and contact information is processed for the time necessary to handle the case related to the user, including to send marketing information about products or services selected by the user.
This data will then be processed for the purpose of providing (electronically) the contact form service, in accordance with the rules and regulations available <here – link to the rules and regulations applicable to the contact form service> (Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR).
As far as sending of commercial information by electronic means or direct marketing via telephone terminal devices is concerned, the data will be processed on the basis of a consent given by means of an explicit confirmatory action (Article 6(1)(a) in conjunction with Article 4(11) of the GDRP), consisting in completing the relevant box intended for entering the e-mail address or telephone number and clicking on the box “I agree”.
Pursuit of claims
If it is necessary for the Controller to pursue claims or defend themselves against claims, the Controller may process the personal data of specific users included in the online contact form until the end of the pending proceedings and until the expiry of the statute of limitations for the Controller’s claims against the user – which is usually three years, pursuant to Article 118 of the Civil Code, but may be longer in specific cases provided for in law.
This data will then be processed in accordance with Article 6(1)(f) of the GDRP, i.e. for the purpose of pursuing a legitimate interest by the Controller, consisting in pursuing their claims against the user or defending themselves against such claims. The legitimate interest of the Controller shall then take precedence over the rights and freedoms of the service recipient.
