§ 3 Disclosure, Storage, and Transfer of Data

  1. Customer’s personal data is transferred to service providers used by the controller in operating the online store. Service providers processing personal data either follow the controller’s instructions regarding the purposes and methods of data processing (data processors) or independently determine the purposes and methods of data processing (controllers). a) Data processors: The controller uses providers who process personal data exclusively on the controller’s instructions. These include hosting service providers, accounting services, marketing systems providers, systems for analyzing traffic on the online store, systems for analyzing the effectiveness of marketing campaigns, payment gateway providers, and shipping service providers. b) Controllers: The controller uses providers who do not act solely on the controller’s instructions and independently determine the purposes and methods of using Customer’s personal data. They provide electronic payment and banking services.
  2. Location: Service providers are primarily located in Poland and other countries within the European Economic Area (EEA).
  3. Customer’s personal data is stored: a) If the processing is based on consent, the Customer’s personal data is processed by the controller until the consent is withdrawn. After withdrawing consent, the data is retained for a period corresponding to the statute of limitations for claims that the controller may raise or that may be raised against the controller. Unless a specific provision states otherwise, the limitation period is six years, and for claims related to periodic benefits and business activities – three years. b) If the processing is based on the performance of a contract, the Customer’s personal data is processed by the controller for as long as necessary to perform the contract. After this period, the data is retained for a period corresponding to the statute of limitations for claims. Unless a specific provision states otherwise, the limitation period is six years, and for claims related to periodic benefits and business activities – three years.

  5. The controller may collect Customer’s IP addresses. An IP address is a number assigned to a visitor’s computer by the internet service provider. In most cases, it is assigned dynamically, meaning it changes with each internet connection. It is commonly treated as non-personal identifying information. The IP address is used by the controller to diagnose technical problems with the server, create statistical analyses (e.g., determining the regions with the most visits), assist in administering and improving the online store, and for security purposes and potential identification of server load, unwanted automated programs for browsing the store’s content.

The Customer (data subject) has the right to access data – legal basis: Article 15 of the GDPR. a) The Customer has the right to obtain confirmation from the controller on whether personal data concerning them is being processed, and if so, the Customer has the right to: o access their personal data, o obtain information about the purposes of processing, the categories of personal data processed, the recipients or categories of recipients of this data, the planned period of storing the Customer’s data, or criteria for determining this period (if determining the planned period of data processing is not possible), information about the rights granted to the Customer under the GDPR, and the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority, the source of this data, automated decision-making, including profiling, and the safeguards applied when transferring this data outside the European Union, o obtain a copy of their personal data.

However, if – due to the complex nature of the request or the number of requests – the controller cannot fulfill the request within one month, the controller will fulfill it within the next two months, informing the Customer in advance within one month of receiving the request about the intended extension and its reasons. c) The Customer can address complaints, inquiries, and requests regarding the processing of their personal data and the exercise of their rights to the controller. d) The Customer has the right to lodge a complaint with the President of the Office for Personal Data Protection regarding the violation of their rights to the protection of personal data or other rights granted under the GDPR.
