On 25 May 2018, Regulation 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation – ‘GDPR’) entered into force throughout the European Union, and thus in the Republic of Poland. Bearing in mind your security, which is a priority for us, we ensure that we apply all the measures provided for by law to protect personal data, and we also apply the principle of special care. Below you will find the rules according to which we collect and store your data, your rights and the persons responsible for the security of your personal data processed by us. We kindly ask you to read the following information and to accept the terms and conditions of use of our website. All processing of your personal data will be based on the provisions of generally applicable law, including in particular the above mentioned regulation of GDPR, as well as the provisions of the Polish Personal Data Protection Act of 10 May 2018.
What is personal data and what is its processing?
The GDPR n Article 4(1) defines personal data as any information from which a natural person can be identified, directly or indirectly. These include, but are not limited to, name, identification number (PESEL), telephone number, e-mail address, IP address, physical or physiological characteristics. In addition, such data includes information about your location sent by smartphones, tablets and other electronic devices.
Furthermore, we would like to inform you that according to the GDPR the protection of personal data only applies to natural persons and therefore does not extend to legal persons.
The processing of personal data is basically any activity on personal data, whether or not it is carried out by automated means, e.g. collecting, storing, recording, organizing, modifying, viewing, using, sharing, limiting, deleting or destroying.
Who is the Personal Data Administrator?
The Administrator is the entity responsible for collecting personal data. The Administrator is also the addressee to whom you can address all your requests, related to personal data collection and processing. In our case, the Administrator is HTG Electronics spółka z ograniczoną odpowiedzialnością with its seat in Oborniki Śląskie, address: ul. Czesława Miłosza 1/3, 55-120 Oborniki Śląskie, KRS 0000804091, NIP: 9151813993, REGON: 384375219 (HTG). You can contact the Administrator by letter or e-mail at email@example.com.
What personal data do we process?
As a rule, we only process personal data if this is actually necessary for the provision of the service or the contract. In this case, we process personal data of HTG’s customers, persons contacting HTG in order to obtain information about the offer, share comments about services or products, start cooperation or conclude a contract, i.e. in particular the following personal data: Name and surname, e-mail, telephone, delivery address, invoice billing addresses, NIP number.
Furthermore, if you consent to this for the proper performance of our services, we will be able to process your sensitive data. At the same time, we would like to point out that each time you provide information from a particular category of personal data, such as sensitive data, in person, via the website, by e-mail or by telephone, will be considered as a consent to the collection and use of such information in the manner set out in this document or in the place where such information has been disclosed.
On what basis and for what purpose do we process data?
The processing of personal data by us is carried out in accordance with the law, in a fair and transparent manner. We process your personal data on the basis of::
- your voluntary consent (e.g., by sending us an e-mail or agreeing to receive a newsletter or other form of advertisement),
- the performance of the concluded contract, as well as the start of cooperation or the signing of the contract,
- HTG’s legitimate interest as a Data Administrator (e.g. in the creation of a database, analytical and profiling activities, including analysis of the use of products, direct marketing of its own products, preservation of documentation for the purposes of defending against possible claims or for the purposes of pursuing claims),
- legal obligations (e.g. tax or accounting law).
The purposes for which we process your personal data are as follows:
- to ensure the highest possible quality of our services, i.e. where you are or will be a party to a contract between us, we will only process the personal data necessary for the performance of the contract, for example, your name, telephone number or address of residence or delivery.
- legitimate interests pursued by the Administrator, which are: performance of contracts and execution of orders, proper provision of services to you, keeping statistics related to visits to our website, improving our services and adapting them to your personalized needs, as well as marketing and own promotion in the service market.
Who can we transfer your data to?
If you agree, your data will only be passed on to trusted parties, cooperating with us, i.e. in particular your data may be transferred to our contractors, subcontractors, co-workers or service providers who will help us in the execution of the service performed (e.g. entities providing IT, postal, courier, accounting services, related to the execution of orders). The transfer of personal data to another entity does not entitle it to any use, but only to processing it for the purposes specified in the entrustment agreement, ensuring the security of processing and to the extent necessary for the proper performance of services and the performance of binding us contracts. Transfer of the personal data does not relieve us (as the transferor) of responsibility for the processing. We point out that your data may also be transferred to a public authority, but only if such authorization is based on generally applicable law and if the authority makes an appropriate request to this effect.
For how long will we process your personal data?
Your personal data will be processed for as long as it is necessary, from the point of view of the legal relationship that binds us together, i.e. until there is a basis for processing your personal data. For example, if your consent is given your data will be processed until this consent is revoked, limited or otherwise restricted; if your data is necessary for the performance of a contract – it will be processed for the duration of the contract and after its performance until the expiry of the statute of limitations for claims arising from it; and if the basis for processing the data is the legitimate interest of the Administrator – until such legitimate interest exists. Furthermore, your personal data will be processed by us for as long as it is necessary due to the applicable legal regulations, the periods of data processing for this purpose are determined by these regulations.
What rights do You have?
GDPR provides a number of rights for persons whose personal data is collected and processed. According to the GDPR, you have the right:
- to access your personal data,
- to request the correction of your personal data,
- to request their removal or restriction of their processing,
- the right to withdraw a consent to process your personal data,
- to data transfer,

Any complaints received will be dealt with and will be answered.
In addition, you also have the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority if in your opinion, our processing of personal data violates the provisions of the GDPR.
