Purposes and processing operations

User account. When creating a user account, you must enter your e-mail address and define a password for the account. Providing data is voluntary, but necessary to set up an account. As part of the editing of the user profile, you can enter further-reaching information about yourself, i.e. name and surname, billing address and shipping address. Providing this data is entirely voluntary. You can have an account without giving any further details. In this case, you will have to enter this data manually when placing an order.

The data you enter in your user account is processed solely for the purpose of maintaining and ensuring that you are able to use your account. Providing data in your user account is intended to make it easier for you to place orders in the shop by automatically providing data to the order form.

The legal basis for the processing of your personal data within the user account is the implementation of the account management agreement, which you conclude on the basis of the shop regulations – Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR.

Data collected in the user account are processed within the WordPress – WooCommerce system and stored on a server provided by BluLink.pl.

Your data will be processed within your account for as long as you have a user account. After deleting your account, your data will be deleted from the database, except for data on orders placed.

You can access your personal data processed within your account at any time by logging into your user account. After logging in to your account, you can modify or delete your data at any time, with the exception of your order data. You can also decide to cancel your account at any time.

In relation to the data stored in your user account, you also have the right to transfer the data referred to in Article 20 of the GDPR.

Orders. When placing an order, you must provide the data necessary to complete the order, i.e. name and surname, billing address, e-mail address, telephone number. Providing data is voluntary, but it is necessary to place an order.

The data provided to us in connection with an order are processed for the purpose of fulfilling an order [Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR], issuing an invoice [Article 6(1)(c) of the GDPR], including an invoice in our accounting records [Article 6(1)(c) of the GDPR] and for archival and statistical purposes [Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR].

The data contained in the order placed through the shop are processed within the WordPress – WooCommerce system and stored on a server provided by BluLink.pl.

If you have a user account, your order will be visible within the order history of the account.

Data on orders will be processed for the time necessary for the execution of the order, and then until the expiration of the statute of limitations of claims under the concluded contract. Moreover, after the expiry of this period, data may still be processed by us for statistical purposes. Please also remember that we are obliged to keep invoices with your personal data for a period of 5 years from the end of the tax year in which the tax obligation arose.

In the case of order data you do not have the possibility to correct this data after the execution of the order. You may not object to the processing of data or demand the deletion of data until the expiration of the statute of limitations for claims under the concluded contract. Similarly, you may not object to the processing of data or demand the deletion of data contained in invoices. After the expiration of the statute of limitations for claims arising from the concluded contract, you may object to our processing of your data for statistical purposes and demand the removal of your data from our database.

You also have the right to transfer the data referred to in Article 20 of the GDPR.

Complaints and withdrawal from the contract. If you make a complaint or withdraw from the contract, you provide us with personal data included in the content of the complaint or withdrawal statement, which includes your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, bank account number.

The data provided to us in connection with the lodging of a complaint or withdrawal from the contract is used for the purpose of the complaint or withdrawal procedure [Article 6(1)(c) of the GDPR].

The data will be processed for the time necessary to carry out the complaint or withdrawal procedure. Complaints and statements of withdrawal from the contract may also be archived for statistical purposes.

In the case of data contained in complaints and declarations of withdrawal from the contract you do not have the possibility to correct these data. You may not object to the processing of data or demand the deletion of data until the expiration of the statute of limitations for claims under the concluded contract. However, after the expiration of the statute of limitations for claims under the contract, you may object to our processing of your data for statistical purposes and demand that your data be deleted from our database.

E-mail contact. By contacting us by e-mail, you naturally provide us with your e-mail address as the sender’s address. In addition, you may also include other personal data in the message.

In this case, your data is processed for the purpose of contacting you and the basis of the processing is Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR, i.e. your consent resulting from the initiation of contact with us. The legal basis for post contact processing is the legitimate purpose of archiving correspondence for internal purposes [Article 6(1)(c) of the GDPR].

The content of the correspondence may be archived and we are not able to unambiguously determine when it will be deleted. You have the right to demand a history of correspondence you have with us (if archived), as well as to demand its removal, unless the archiving is justified by our overriding interests, e.g. defense against potential claims from you.
