Types of collected data and data processing processes

Data collected automatically in connection with the use of the website

As the majority of companies, we automatically collect data related to a user’s visit to the Website, which includes:

– data recorded in server logs, which includes IP addresses, domain names, browser type, operating system type or

– data collected via such technologies as cookie files, API, widgets, local storage and session storage.

In the majority of cases, we will not be able to identify a user with these data or correlate the data to an identifiable user, but we will keep protecting the data. However, when we are able to correlate such pieces of information with an individual user, they become personal data for us, which may occur in particular, when we have additional data from another source, e.g. data that have been collected by means of contact forms, or we are capable of correlating the data with automatically collected data.

  • due to the fact that they are indispensable for purposes resulting from legitimate interests realized by our company, which include in particular:

a. adaptation of the manner the Website is displayed and its personalization,
b. recording of data from forms in order to maintain a session and facilitate the use of the Website, as well as to allow the user to access this part of the Website that requires registration and logging-in,
c. generation of statistics concerning Website use,
d. analysis of the user’s behaviour within the Website, in order to improve its functioning and to prevent cases of abuse,

  • on the basis of the User’s consent – in case the data are not indispensable for the Website to function, e.g. when they are used for marketing purposes or when they are collected to be transmitted to third parties.
Dtata collected for contact purposes:

In case You decide to contact us by means of the contact forms available at our Website, through comments to blog posts sent via a form available at the blog site, by means of e-mail addresses or telephone numbers provided at the Website, via the relevant options available at our profiles in the social media, or by submitting a message to our address via mail service, a courier or in person, as well as in situations, when we are entitled to contact You (e.g. for marketing purposes, when we have acquired Your data), we shall process such personal data that have been provided to us by You and that are indispensable to get in touch with You or to respond to Your message. These data shall include the following in particular:

  • identification and contact data as well as

We process these data due to the fact that they are indispensable for us to realize our legitimate interests, i.e. in order to:

  • respond to a message sent to us and to keep in touch with You,
  • realize direct marketing of products and services offered by our company and third parties (in the case, when we have not got your consent to process the data for marketing purposes, but the relation that binds us allows us to establish such contact),
  • archive and backup the data in connection with the obligation – imposed on us as a data controller – to properly protect the data).

In certain cases, we may process the data on the basis of your consent, in particular, when we are not bound to you by a previous relation that would allow us to get access to your data or when we want to collect a wider range of data than the ones indispensable for merely contacting You. In such case, You may withdraw your consent at any moment (in particular, by means of the contact data provided at the end of this document).

  • for the purpose of pursuing claims and defending against claims – for the period that does not exceed the period of expiry of claims or for the period of specific proceedings if such proceedings have been instituted,
  • for the purpose of fulfilling obligations imposed by legal regulations – for the period that does not exceed the time required to demonstrate that we properly fulfilled the obligations,
