Our role in control and processing of personal data

We are a controller of personal data obtained from you within our mutual business relation. You are the source or the data. As the case may be, we may also obtain the data from publicly available resources, in particular from public registers.

We may also act as a processor of personal data that you control within your activity and provide to us so that we could fulfill business obligations towards you.

Both in our role of the controller and processor we always protect the personal data based on the same principles summarized in this document without making any differences between our clients.


Why do we process personal data?

The personal data obtained from you allow us to enter into a contract with you. If our contractual relation already exists, we use the data to fulfill the contract. We also control and process personal data required for fulfilment of legal obligations prescribed by general applicable legal regulations (labor code, tax and accounting regulations, etc.).

Based on our legitimate interest we are entitled to send to our clients, with whom we have entered the contractual relation, further information and relevant business proposals. Such information is always sent within the client’s legitimate expectations and in non-bothering manner. Should we send you any such information, it will always be the one that may be of your interest.

What personal data we process and in what extent?

To be able to supply our goods and services, we need to know namely the following personal data:

  •          Name and surname (or a business name),
  •          Address (or a company seat),
  •          Your VAT no. (if you are a Vat payer registered within the EU),
  •          Email address and telephone number

In no case do we gather and process sensitive personal data that are not required for fulfillment of our obligations, e.g. the data of political or religious affiliation, race, sexual orientation etc.

What are our legal grounds for personal data processing?

Legal grounds for control and processing of personal data for the purposes of entering into a contract and its fulfillment are represented in particular by the contract itself.

Once the contract is mutually fulfilled we are obliged to archive your personal data for the period prescribed by applicable legal regulations. In this case the legal grounds are represented by our fulfilment of the legal obligations.

If there is an existing relation on basis of which we are entitled to send you marketing information, the legal grounds for processing of your personal data are represented by our legitimate interest.

How long do we keep personal data?

We will keep your personal data during the entire duration of our mutual contract. After termination of the contractual relation we will keep your personal data for the period prescribed to fulfill the archiving duty based on legal regulations (such as the Accounting Act, VAT Act, Act on Archiving and Records Management).

Personal data processed based on our legitimate interest shall be kept for the period not exceeding 10 years. This period commences on the day when we enter into the contract.

How do we keep your data safe?

We keep the controlled and processed personal data in maximum extent in electronic form on servers with secured and limited access. Access to these personal data is restricted to selected employees of our company. Upon previously agreed conditions you may get access to these personal data. This access shall, however be restricted only to the part of the personal data of which you are the controller.

Personal data kept in documentary form are kept in our registered office, with restricted access to company executive officers and selected employees only. Such data are kept in a locked and secured office.
