Your personal data is processed in accordance with one or several legal processing principles:

However, note that, although we take appropriate measures to protect your personal data, not a single website, transaction through the internet, computer system and wireless communications are completely secure.

How long will we store your personal data?

We set your personal data storage term, guided by the requirements of the law, regulations and instructions of the supervising institution and/or another competent institution. If these requirements or instructions are not set, we set your personal data storage term, based on state interest or our legitimate interests, but this term cannot exceed 7 years from the data receipt date (unless, as mentioned above, a longer data storage term is provided by legal acts).

We draw your attention to the fact that, based on the scale of personal data that we process, as well as ongoing events, conferences, exhibitions, courses or other projects, we set the storage period for specific personal data of certain data subject categories in the relevant Privacy Policy of our websites or informational notifications provided to you at the time of receiving data.

Even if you declare your desire to terminate the contract and refuse our services, due to requirements that may arise in the future, we will need to continue to store some of your personal data until the storage period expires. The data will also be stored so that, if necessary, we can provide you with the necessary information, so that we have a properly recorded history of our relations and can answer your questions related to our communication.
