Hello there!

Your being here is a sign that you value your privacy. I perfectly understand it, this is why I want to give you this document where you can find all the rules governing personal data processing and using cookies and other tracking technologies in relation to the operation of the website at https://contemplace.pl/.

One formal information to start with – the administrator of the website is „Marcin Gajewski” (ul. Krawiecka 1/104, 50-148 Wrocław NIP: 9880107863, REGON: 020722663). 

This privacy policy has been written in the form of questions and answers. The choice of such form results from the care for transparency and clarity of information provided to you. 

If you have any doubts as for the privacy policy, you can contact me at any moment, reaching out to info@contemplace.pl.

# 1: Who is the administrator of your personal data?

The administrator of your personal data is „Marcin Gajewski” (ul. Krawiecka 1/104, 50-148 Wrocław NIP: 9880107863, REGON: 020722663).

# 2: Who can you contact in relation to processing your personal data?

As part of the implementation of personal data security in my organization, a decision has been made not to appoint a data protection supervisor in view of the fact that in my situation it is not mandatory. In relation to personal data protection and the broadly understood privacy, you can contact me at the e-mail address info@contemplace.pl.

# 3: What information about you do I have?

Depending on the goal, I may process the following information about you:

  • name and surname,
  • address of residence,
  • business address,
  • taxpayer identification number NIP,
  • e-mail address,
  • phone number,
  • data included in e-mail correspondence,
  • details of orders made via the online store,
  • bank account number,
  • IP address,
  • estimated location,
  • image (profile picture),
  • statistics related to newsletters you receive,
  • favorite mail client,
  • interests in specific subjects,
  • content of comments / opinions added on the website.

The range of processed data has been precisely described in relation to each purpose of processing. You can find information relevant to this area in the subsequent parts of this privacy policy.

Moreover, I use tools that store a range of information about you concerning the use of my website. Specifically, I store the following information:

  • information about operating system and internet browser,
  • subpages viewed,

  • transitions between subpages,
  • clicks on links,
  • source from which you enter my website,
  • your age bracket,
  • your gender,
  • your estimated location, limited to the city.
  • your interests, determined on the basis of your online activity.

This information is referred to as “Anonymous Information” in the subsequent parts of this privacy policy.

To me, Anonymous Information doesn’t have the character of personal data, because I can’t use it to identify you. Also, I don’t combine it with your typical personal data that I collect. However, considering the rigorous judicature of the Court of Justice of the European Union, as well as the lack of unanimity among lawyers, out of prudence, in case that Anonymous Information are treated in the same way as personal data, this privacy policy also includes a detailed explication of the processing of this information.

As Anonymous Information is stored by external tools that I use (these tools have been discussed in detail in later parts of this privacy policy), it is also processed by the providers of such tools according to the rules resulting from their respective terms and conditions and privacy policies.

Anonymous Information is also used by the providers of the respective tools in order to provide, develop and manage their services, elaborate new services, measure advertisement efficacy, protect from fraud and malpractice, as well as personalize content and advertisements displayed in specific services, websites and applications.

# 4: Where did I take your personal data from?

In most cases, you hand it over yourself. This happens whenever:

  • you register a user’s account,
  • you place an order,
  • you submit a complaint or withdraw from a contract,
  • you subscribe to a newsletter,
  • you add a comment / opinion,
  • you make contact using e-mail,
  • you observe profiles in social media or interact with content published in social media.

Moreover, part of information about you may be stored automatically by the tools that I use:

  • the mechanism of the website and that of the newsletter system, store your IP address,
  • the newsletter system mechanism stores information about your activity in regard of the content sent to you in the newsletter, such as openings of messages, clicks on links, etc.
  • external  tools that use cookies (these tools have been discussed in detail in the later parts of this privacy policy) store Anonymous Information related to your activity on the website.

# 5: Is your data safe?

I take care of the safety of your personal data. I have analyzed the risks entailed by specific processes of your data processing, and adopted appropriate safety and personal data protection measures.

My website, just like almost all websites, uses cookies.

Cookies are small pieces of text information stored on your terminal device, which may be read by my computerized system (own cookies) or computerized systems of third parties (third party cookies). Cookie files may contain specific information, which computerized systems may then access for specific purposes.

Some cookies are deleted after the session of an internet browser has ended, that is, after closing the browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies are stored on your terminal device and make it possible for your browser to be recognized during the next visit on the website (permanent cookies).

# 10: Is there anything else you should know?

As you can see, the subject of personal data processing, using cookies and managing generally understood privacy, is quite complicated. I did my best to prepare this document in a way that it would give you the best knowledge in the matters important to you.
