  4. technical development of the IT system;
  5. protection of the rights of Users;
  6. validating the rightful interests of the Data Controller.

Data Processing is performed on the basis of the User’s statement given freely, beforehand, and after having been provided suitable information, which statement includes the User’s consent for the processing of the Personal Data provided by them during the use of the Website and the Personal Data generated in relation to them. In the case of consent-based data processing, the User is authorised to withdraw consent at any time, which does not affect the legality of the data processing performed prior to the withdrawal.

In addition to the user’s voluntary consent, the Data Controller's significant rightful interest can also form the legal basis for Data Processing as part of and in connection with the provision of content.

  1. The principles and methods for Data Processing
  1. The Data Controller processes Personal Data in line with the principles of good faith and fair dealing and of transparency, and in accordance with the provisions of relevant legislation and this Information.

The Data Controller shall not check the provided Personal Data. The person providing the Personal Data shall be solely liable for its correctness and compliance.

  1. The Personal Data of persons under 16 may be processed only with the consent of the adult exercising parental responsibility.

The Data Controller is unable to check the authority of the person granting consent and the contents of the provided statement; therefore, the User or the person exercising parental responsibility over the User warrants that the consent given complies with relevant legislation. In absence of a statement of consent, the Data Controller shall not collect Personal Data pertaining to persons under 16, with the exception of the IP address used to access the Service, which is automatically recorded due to the nature of online services.


  1. The Data Controller shall not disclose to third parties the Personal Data it processes.

An exception under the provision in this point is the statistically aggregated use of data that may not include any data suitable for the identification of the given User in any form and therefore does not qualify as Data Processing or data transfer.

  1. In the case of emails sent by the User, if the User is not registered on the site, the contacted Data Controller shall delete the email address on the 90th day following the closing of the case referred to in the request, unless the Data Controller’s legitimate interest justifies the continued processing of the Personal Data; in this case, the Personal Data shall be processed until the Data Controller’s legitimate interest ends.


  1. The Personal Data disclosed by the User shall be processed until the User unsubscribes from the Service with the use of the given user name or otherwise requests the deletion of the Personal Data.

In this case, the Personal Data shall be deleted from the Data Controller's systems.

Even if the User does not unsubscribe from the Service or only terminated the possibility for logging in by deleting the registered account but leaves the comments and data uploaded to the account, the Personal Data provided by the User may be handled by the Data Controller until the time the User expressly requests in writing that their processing to be terminated.

  1. In the case of the use of unlawful or misleading Personal Data, a crime committed by the User, or an attack against the system, the Data Controller shall be authorised to terminate the User’s registration and promptly delete the User’s Personal Data; however, in case of suspicion of a crime or liability under civil law, the Data Controller is also authorised to store the Personal Data for the duration of the procedure to be held.
  2. The data automatically generated during the course of system operation and technically recorded are stored in the system from the time of their generation for the duration justified for the purpose of ensuring the operation of the system. With the exceptions required by law, the Data Controller ensures that these automatically recorded data cannot be brought in connection with other Personal Data.

 If the User withdraws the consent given for the processing of his/her Personal Data or has unsubscribed from the Service, the person of the User will no longer be identifiable from the technical data, with the exception of investigating authorities and their experts.

  1. If a court or official body issues a final order for the erasure of the Personal Data, the Data Controller shall perform such erasure. The Data Controller shall, after informing the User, restrict the use of the Personal Data instead of erasing it if so requested by the User, or if there are reasonable grounds to believe that erasure could affect the legitimate interests of the User.
