Privacy Policy

Information about GDPR

As of May 25, 2018, the Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of April 27, 2016, on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (GDPR) comes into effect. The provisions adopted there apply to all European Union countries. The new law introduces changes in the rules governing the processing of personal data. Below, we present an extract of the most important elements regarding the processing of personal data concerning the use of our services.

Information about personal data

According to applicable law, personal data refers to information about an identified or identifiable individual. When using services provided by the Gdansk Foundation, personal data mainly includes the following: your device's IP address, request URL, domain name, device identifier, browser type, browser language, number of clicks, time spent on individual pages, date and time of website usage, type and version of operating system, screen resolution, server log data, and other similar information. It may also include other data voluntarily provided by the User in connection with the use of selected services on our websites (e.g., registration in contests and polls, etc.): email address, phone number, first name, last name, PESEL number, traditional mailing address. If a specific service used by the User has its own privacy note specifying the processing of data, that note takes precedence over the information provided in this Privacy Policy. 

Personal data may be stored in cookies or similar technologies (e.g., local storage) installed by the Gdansk Foundation on our websites and devices that the User uses when accessing our services.

 

Information about the legal basis and purpose of data processing

The processing of personal data can only be carried out on a legal basis and only for as long as such a basis exists. The Gdansk Foundation processes data on the following legal bases:

1. User's consent

Whenever we ask the User to provide consent for the processing of their personal data, the legal basis allowing us to process the data will be consent. For example, by providing a phone number in a form allowing the User to schedule a visit to the Municipal Office, the User gives consent to receive notifications and information regarding that visit and related matters.

2. Contractual necessity

In some situations, we will process User's data when it is necessary to enter into a contract in which the User is a party, or when it is necessary to take pre-contractual steps at the User's request. This may occur, for example, when ordering notification services or participating in contests, polls, or similar situations.

3. Legitimate interests pursued by the Gdansk Foundation in Gdansk, which include:

  • Monitoring User activity, including keyword searches, to optimize search results.

  • Contacting the User to provide information, especially with their consent.

  • Providing payment services.

  • Ensuring service security and traffic safety.

  • Handling requests and inquiries submitted by Users through the contact form or other available communication channels, such as email, electronic messengers, etc.

  • Organizing contests and promotional campaigns in which the User participates.

  • Conducting statistical analyses.

  • Storing data for archival purposes.

Information about personal data administrators

The data administrator is the Gdansk Foundation, located at Długi Targ 28/29, 80-830 Gdansk.

Information about the transfer of personal data

User's data will only be processed by the Gdansk Foundation. Upon request from public authorities, based on applicable superior legal provisions, User's data may be disclosed to such authorities.

Sources of personal data

User information is collected from the following sources: 

  1. When visiting websites, a text file called "cookies" may be periodically placed on the user's computer to identify the computer. This file allows the collection of certain information about the user's computer (e.g., IP address, computer's operating system, browser type). The use of cookies aims to provide users with the convenience of not having to enter their password frequently. The user can disable the acceptance of cookies at any time in their web browser. Disabling this function may cause certain difficulties in using the website.

  2. IP addresses of computers are collected in access logs. The collected data is used for administrative purposes and user statistical analysis.

  3. Data provided during online registration is stored in a dedicated database to provide the service. After the visit date has passed, the data is automatically deleted. Some data is used for statistical analysis of users, such as age and gender.

  4. When using various forms or registering for services on the website, the User will be explicitly asked to provide their data. The collected data is used to enable the provision of services and for statistical purposes. The User has the right to access and edit the provided data. They can also request the removal of their data and unsubscribe from the service at any time.

  5. Our websites use third-party analytical software (such as Google Analytics), which places a code on the User's device to collect data about the User.

 

Transfer of data outside the European Economic Area
