Do we transfer personal data to third countries?
In general, we do not transfer personal data to countries outside the European Union and the European Economic Area (EEA). However, if such a need arises in connection with the provision of services, we will assess the circumstances and ensure that an appropriate level of data protection is in place so that the processing is carried out in accordance with applicable legal regulations.
Operating the Website, we use services and technologies offered by the entities such as Facebook, Microsoft, Google, which are based in the United States and may partially process personal data using servers located outside the European Economic Area (EEA). In the light of the provisions of the GDPR, these are so-called entities located in third countries, in respect of which an assurance of an adequate level of protection or a note of the existence of appropriate safeguards must be demonstrated.
We ensure that the aforementioned entities apply the compliance mechanisms provided for by the GDPR (e.g. certificates) or standard contractual clauses adopted by the European Commission (Article 46(2)(c) of the GDPR). For more information on the data processing by the aforementioned entities, please visit the websites of the providers of these services.
Do we profile your personal data?
As part of the Website and the technologies used, we may profile your data. This involves using your data (i.e. gender, age, interests, approximate location, your behaviour on the Website) to assess your activity and potential interest in the services.
The profiling makes it possible to personalise offer and advertisements addressed to the users; however it does not influence the terms and conditions of concluded contracts for the provision of the services. The information processed is anonymous and is not associated with the user ordering the services. Thus, we do not make any automated decisions that could have legal consequences for individuals or could affect them in a similarly significant manner.
What personal data do we process as a processor and how do we obtain them?
Under the terms of service and any other separate agreements, we also act as a processor, processing personal data. These data are collected and subsequently recorded in the Segmetric system directly by the controller of these data.
As a processor, we process data only on the documented instructions of the controller of such data (under a data entrustment agreement), committing ourselves to secure the data properly by applying appropriate technical and organisational measures and ensure an adequate level of protection corresponding to the risks involved in the processing of personal data (in accordance with the Article 32 of the GDPR). We also ensure that persons authorised by us to the process have undertaken to keep it confidential. Upon completion of the services relating to the processing of personal data entrusted to us, we will return all such data to the controller of such data (the Customer) and delete existing copies unless applicable law obliges us to store personal data.
On the Website we use so-called cookies ("cookies"), which are short text information stored on your computer, phone, tablet or other devices, which can be read by our system and also by the systems belonging to other entities whose services we use: Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Twitter.
Thanks to cookies, we collect anonymous data about users' visits to the Website, which we can use to improve the functionality of the Website, identify errors or for marketing purposes.
How do we protect your data?
To ensure a high and consistent level of protection, we use IT environment safeguards adequate for the processing, as well as technical and organisational measures, which include, among others:
- TLS protocol encryption,
- creating backup copies,
- equipping data centres with data protection mechanisms,
- conducting regular security level tests,
- monitoring the security of personal data,
- mitigating the risk of potential abuses and reacting promptly in case of their occurrence,
- implementing data protection policies,
- ensuring continuous confidentiality, integrity, availability and resistance of the processing systems and services,
- allowing access to personal data only to authorised persons,
- creating and regularly modifying passwords to access systems where personal data are processed.
What rights do data subjects have?
Data subjects whose data we process have the rights to:
- access to their personal data;
- change their personal data;
- remove their personal data;
- restrict the processing of personal data;
- object to the processing of personal data;
- transfer the personal data;
- withdraw consent to the processing of personal data (provided that the processing is based on the consent of a data subject).
However, the rights listed above are not absolute, and in certain circumstances, after analysis, we may legitimately refuse to exercise them.
Please also be informed that the withdrawal of your consent to data processing will not affect the lawfulness of data processing that took place on the basis of the consent given before its withdrawal.
If you request us to exercise any of the above rights, we will respond to your request without delay, but no later than within one month of its receipt. If due to the complexity of the request or the number of requests, we are unable to comply with your request within one month, we will comply with it within a further two months. However, we will inform you of the intended extension of the deadline beforehand.
How can you complain about irregularities in the processing of personal data?
If you believe that your personal data is processed by us contrary to the applicable law, you can file a complaint with the President of the Office for Personal Data Protection.
