Importantly, in the case of order data, you cannot rectify this data after the order has been completed and you cannot object to the processing of data or demand the deletion of data until the expiry of the limitation period for claims under the contract. You also cannot object to data processing or request the deletion of data contained in invoices. Only after the expiry of the limitation period for claims under the contract, you can object to the processing of your data by us for statistical purposes, as well as you can request the removal of your data from my database.
If the customer requests an invoice with the placed order, we process your personal data to the extent necessary to issue an invoice. In this case, the legal basis for the processing of your personal data is the fulfilment of the legal obligation to issue an invoice.
All invoices issued by us are included in the accounting documentation, which is directly related to the fact that your data will be processed as part of this documentation for the period of time required by law.
Complaints and withdrawal from the contract
By submitting a complaint or withdrawing from the contract, you provide us with the personal data contained in the complaint document or declaration of withdrawal from the contract. This content includes your name and surname, home address, telephone number, e-mail address, bank account number.

These data will be processed for the time necessary to implement the complaint procedure or the withdrawal procedure. Complaints and statements of withdrawal from the contract may also be archived by us for statistical purposes.
Importantly, in the case of data contained in the complaint or declaration of withdrawal from the contract, you cannot rectify the data. You also cannot object to data processing and demand the deletion of data until the expiry of the limitation period for claims under the contract. However, after the expiry of the limitation period for claims under the contract, you can object to our processing of your data for statistical purposes and you can request the removal of your data from our database.
Importantly, in accordance with Article 38, the right to withdraw from a contract concluded outside the business premises or at a distance is not available to the consumer in relation to contracts: for the supply of digital content that is not recorded on a tangible medium, if the performance began with the consumer’s express consent before the expiry of the deadline to withdraw from the contract and after informing the entrepreneur about the loss of the right to withdraw from the contract. After downloading the e-book (digital content), the consumer loses the right to withdraw from the contract.
When you want to contact us via e-mail – you naturally provide us with your e-mail address as the sender’s address. It is important that providing data is voluntary, but necessary to make contact.
In this case, your data is processed in order to contact you. The basis for processing is Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. a GDPR, i.e. your consent resulting from initiating contact. The legal basis for processing after the end of contact is the justified purpose of archiving correspondence for the purpose of showing its course in the future (Article 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR).
The content of e-mail correspondence may be archived. We are not able to clearly say when it will be removed. However, you have the right to request a history of correspondence with us. It may also demand its removal – although archiving the history may be justified due to our overriding interest, e.g. defence against potential claims on your part.
