Therefore, we also have information about the messages you opened, the messages in which you clicked on links, etc.
The data provided by you in connection with the subscription to the newsletter is used to send you the newsletter, and the legal basis for their processing is your consent (Article 6(1) (a) of the GDPR) expressed when subscribing to the newsletter.

You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time by clicking on the dedicated link in each message sent as part of the newsletter or by simply contacting us.
Despite unsubscribing from the newsletter, your data will still be stored in the database in order to identify the returning subscriber and possibly defend claims related to sending you the newsletter, in particular to demonstrate that you consented to receive the newsletter and the moment of withdrawal of the consent, which is our legitimate interest referred to in Article 6(1) (f) of the GDPR.

8: Who are the recipients of your personal data?
We would venture to say that modern business is not able to do without services provided by third parties. We also use such services. Some of these services are related to the processing of your personal data. External service providers that participate in the processing of your personal data are:
- The hosting provider that stores the data on the server,
- The provider of the cloud computing service in which files that may contain your personal data are stored,
- The provider of the mailing system in which your data is stored, if you are a newsletter subscriber,
- a CRM system provider where we store your data to improve the customer service process and for archival purposes,
- an invoicing system provider where your data is stored in order to issue an invoice,
- an accounting office that processes your data visible on invoices,
- an entity providing maintenance services that gain access to data, if the technical works carried out relate to areas where personal data are located,
- Other subcontractors who gain access to data, if the scope of their activities requires such access.
All entities mentioned above process your data on the basis of concluded personal data processing agreements and guarantee an adequate level of personal data protection.
If necessary, your data may be made available to a legal advisor or attorney bound by professional secrecy. The need may arise from the necessity to use legal assistance that requires access to your personal data.
Your personal data may also be transferred to tax offices to the extent necessary to fulfil tax, accounting and accounting obligations. It concerns in particular all declarations, reports, statements and other accounting documents in which your personal data is located.
In addition, if necessary, your personal data may be made available to entities, bodies or institutions authorised to obtain access to data on the basis of legal provisions, such as the police, security services, courts, prosecutor’s offices.
Your data is made available to postal and courier companies to the extent necessary to deliver correspondence. These companies become independent administrators of your personal data.
Moreover, when it comes to Anonymous Information, the providers of tools or plugins that collect Anonymous Information have access to it. The providers of these tools are independent administrators of the data collected in them and may share this data on the terms specified by them in their own regulations and privacy policies, over which we have no influence.
9: Do we transfer your data to third countries or international organisations?
Yes, part of the processing of your personal data may involve their transfer to third countries.
We transfer your personal data to third countries in connection with the use of tools that store personal data on servers located in third countries, in particular in the USA. The providers of these tools guarantee an adequate level of protection of personal data through appropriate compliance mechanisms provided for by the GDPR, in particular through the use of standard contractual clauses.
Personal data is stored on servers located in third countries using the following tools:
- MailerLite mailing system, the provider of which is MailerLite, Inc. (Delaware corporation at 548 Market St, PMB 98174, San Francisco, CA 94104-5401, United States) regarding your name, e-mail address, IP address and statistical information related to your responses to sent messages.
MailerLite, Inc. ensures an adequate level of protection of personal data through the use of compliance mechanisms provided for by the GDPR, in particular through the use of standard contractual clauses.
We also remind you here that we use external tools that may collect Anonymous Information. The providers of these tools often use servers located all over the world, in particular in the United States of America (USA), to store the collected information.
10: Do we use profiling? Do we make automated decisions based on your personal data?
We do not make decisions for you based solely on automated processing, including profiling, that would have legal effects on you or similarly significantly affect you.
Yes, we do use tools that can take certain actions depending on the information collected as part of the tracking mechanisms, but we believe that these actions do not have a significant impact on you because they do not differentiate your situation as a customer, they do not affect the terms of the contract, which you can conclude with us, etc.
By using certain tools we can, for example, direct personalised advertisements to you based on your previous actions taken on the website or suggest products that may be of interest to you. We are talking about the so-called behavioural advertising. We encourage you to learn more about behavioural advertising, in particular regarding privacy issues. Detailed information, along with the ability to manage your behavioural advertising settings, can be found here.
We emphasise that as part of the tools we use, we only have access to Anonymous Information. This information is stored on the servers of the suppliers of individual tools, and these servers can most often be located all over the world.

Google Ads – details
We use remarketing functions available as part of the Google AdWords system operated by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. We carry out activities in this area based on our legitimate interest, consisting in the marketing of our own products or services.
When you visit our website, a Google cookie remarketing file is automatically left on your device, which collects information about your activity on our website. Thanks to the information collected in this way, we are able to display advertisements to you within the Google network depending on your behaviour on our website. For example, if you display a product, the information about this fact will be recorded by the remarketing cookie file, which will allow us to send you an advertisement about that product or any other that we deem appropriate.

Facebook Connect and other social plugins – details
Our website uses plugins, buttons and other social tools, hereinafter collectively referred to as “plugins”, provided by social networks such as Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIN, Behance.
When displaying a website containing a plugin of a given social networking site, your browser sends information about the visit to the administrator of that social networking site. Since the plugin is a part of the social networking site embedded in our website, the browser sends information about the request to download the content of the social networking site to our site.
The plugins collect certain information about you, such as user ID, website visited, date and time, and other information about your web browser.
Social network administrators use some of this information to personalise the viewing conditions of our website. For example, when you visit a page with a “Like” button, the administrator of the social networking site needs to know who you are to show you which of your friends also like our page.
The information collected by the plugins may also be used by the administrators of social networking sites for their own purposes, such as, for example, improving their own products, creating user profiles, analysing and optimising their own activities, advertising targeting. We have no real influence on how the information collected by the plugins is then used by the administrators of social networks. You can look for details in this regard in the regulations and privacy policies of individual social networking sites.
Social network plugins collect and transmit information to the administrators of these websites even when you browse our website without being logged in to your account on the social network. However, then the browser sends a more limited set of information.
If you have logged in to one of the social networking sites, the website administrator will be able to directly assign a visit to our site to your profile on a given social networking site.
If you do not want social networking sites to assign the data collected during your visit to our website directly to your profile on a given website, you must log out of this website before visiting our website. You can also completely prevent the loading of plugins on the website by using appropriate extensions for your browser, e.g. blocking scripts.
In addition, the use of some plugins may involve the publication of certain information within your social profiles. For example, information about clicking the “Like” button may be available on your Facebook timeline. Of course, if you share some content on your social media using plugins embedded on our website, this sharing will naturally be visible in your profile.
As for the details related to the processing of information collected by plugins by social network administrators, in particular about the purpose and scope of data collection and their further processing and use by administrators, as well as the possibility of contact and your rights in this regard and the possibility of making settings to protect your privacy, you can find everything in the privacy policies of individual service providers:
