We process only the personal data which you provide us in your order. To be specific, they usually include the name and surname, date of birth, address, e-mail and telephone number.
Do we need your consent to process the personal data?
We may process your personal data in the following cases, even without your consent. First of all, they are the situations related to the execution of your order. Should this be the case, the legal basis for the processing of your personal data is article 6, par. 1(b) of the GDPR Regulation – the processing is necessary to fulfill the obligations arising from the concluded purchase contract because we need your personal data to register the order and deliver the goods or services. Subsequently, we use your personal data to fulfill our statutory obligations in terms of book keeping and tax records (in the field of taxes and accounting). Should this be the case, the legal basis for the processing is article 6, par. 1 (c) of the GDPR Regulation, because the processing is necessary to fulfill the Data Controller’s legal obligation.
