2. How do we obtain Personal Data and what is the basis for data processing
We provide a broad scope of Services to our Customers. The information that We obtain about the person depends on the Service which is used or applied for by the Customer. We also obtain the information that is provided by the Customer to Us within the framework of cooperation of any form.

In order to comply with legislative requirements and ensure long-term cooperation it might be necessary to request data also from public registers in line with laws and regulations.

The Customer has the right to not provide his/her Personal Data to Us, however in such a case it is possible that We will not be able to provide the Services requested by the Customer and the deal will be rejected.
We do data processing in compliance with certain basis for data processing, inter alia based on execution of Customer’s requests and respective deals, within the framework of Customer’s consent, meeting of legislative requirements, as well as protection of Our and third parties’ legitimate interests, and it is done in balance with the rights and interests of Customers.

Kinds of Personal Data may differ depending on the Service used or cooperation. In general, Personal Data may be grouped into the following categories.

  • Basic Data, including name, surname, contact phone number, e-mail address.
  • Data referring to the relationship with the Customer, for example, information about the Service provided to the Customer and the data resulting from the provision of the Service, for example, purchase of equipment or accessories and related supporting documents; data of the parcel delivery service, data of equipment repairs and related equipment data, incl. producer of the equipment, model of the equipment, IMEI code, settings, defect description, visual picture — assessment, security code, if any; or data within the framework of the equipment data saving service; payment-related documents and their data, Customer’s communication data that We receive during the on-site or remote communication with the Customer, for example e-mails addressed to Us, applications or information provided during a phone conversation and agreements made with the Customer; Customer’s requests or prohibitions to process particular data for a particular goal.

We respect the rights of such persons and in case a Service is needed, we invite parents or guardians of such persons to contact Us.

4. How do We use Personal Data
We process Personal Data in order to provide Services, ensure effective Customer service, cooperation and other Our operations and activities that are important to Our Customers.
In order to protect Personal Data of Our Customers, We prefer Anonymised Data processing, preventing identification of the person. Often, however, We have to process identifiable Personal Data in compliance with the nature of the Service provided and cooperation, as well as binding legislative requirements. In such a case We process data in accordance with the applicable basic principles of data processing, in particular the principle of minimised data processing and other legislative requirements.
We process Personal Data only for the needs of particular goals based on the established legal basis, including Our legitimate interests, for example:

  • Quality control of provided services.

We perform processing on the basis of the legislation (law) and contract (deal).

5. How do We protect Personal Data
We ensure confidentiality of Personal Data by appropriate security measures and in line with legislative requirements and respective duties.
In order to protect Customer's interests We develop our security process and measures on an ongoing basis. Such security measures include protection of the staff, information and technical resources, IT infrastructure, as well as the buildings where we operate. Within the framework of such measures We ensure appropriate level of information protection to avoid unauthorised access of third parties.

6. Whom can We submit Personal Data to
Exchange of Personal Data may be necessary in individual cases with a particular purpose, for example, We might need to submit Personal Data to the following categories of data receivers.

  • Companies of Our Group to process information in line with the legislation, inter alia to ensure proper management of Group’s companies.
  • Cooperation partners, including cooperation partners for the provision of Services, quality control and development, as well as partners who provide certain delivery services, personal, object and information protection and security services and other Services. For example, We cooperate with producers who process Personal Data in order to execute the repair guarantees provided to the Customer in the equipment usage instructions in line with the legislation. In such cases Customer’s personal data (name, surname, contact phone number and e-mail address, if indicated), which are necessary to execute the repair deal, equipment data and copies of equipment purchase (deal) supporting documents, which are necessary to ensure the repair, may be submitted to the producer of Customer’s equipment or its authorised person as the manager to achieve the goal of processing — execution of the repair deal. If necessary, We cooperate with Our partners that ensure parcel delivery to Customers. Such data processing is based on Customer’s applications — execution of the deal and compliance with the legislation. Such cooperation partners are allowed to use Personal Data only for the purposes agreed between Us and the cooperation partners. We take due care to ensure that such cooperation partners act in line with this Privacy Policy and security requirements provided for in the legislation in respect to Customers.
  • Supervising institutions. In order to meet legislative requirements, We might need to submit Personal Data to market supervising institutions, law enforcement institutions, as stipulated by laws and regulations.
  • Other persons. Data may be processed in accordance with Customer’s consent or request, including in cases when the Customer has agreed with data transfer to third parties for a defined purpose. For example, if the Customer uses equipment of a certain producer and the Customer has agreed that the producer will contact the Customer to find out if the Customer is satisfied with the products of producer’s brand and to assess the quality of performed repairs. In such cases Customer’s data are received and processed by the particular producer in order to be able to contact the Customer.

In addition to the above mentioned, there may be cases when We can transfer Personal Data to other persons in relation to business transfer, any merger, acquisition, sale of Our assets or transfer of Service delivery to another undertaking.
We ensure confidentiality of Personal Data by security measures performed in line with legislative requirements.
We can also process Anonymised Data. Such data that give no possibility to identify the person may be used for other purposes and transferred to other persons.

7. How long do we store data
We store Personal Data only for a period of time which is necessary to achieve the goals set in this Privacy Policy, unless a longer storage is not determined or allowed by applicable laws and regulations. To determine the time period for data storage We use the criteria that comply with the legislative liabilities, inter alia We respect Customer’s rights, for example, by determining data storage for a period of time when claims related to the deal, if any, may be submitted.
If the Customer has requested to make data copy of information in the device during the time period of repairs, the data copy is saved for 2 (two) months from the date when the Customer has picked up their device from service centre, so that in case of necessity, per customers request it would be possible to restore Customer’s data repeatedly and/or if it is necessary to review client submitted questions regarding the provided service. However, in accordance with data minimisation principle the saved data copy is stored for no longer than 6 (six) months from the moment, when the Customer has been informed that the device is ready to be picked up for the first time. Thus, if after receiving information on picking up the device the Customer does not arrive to pick up or if the device is not picked up by the Customer in another manner within time period of 6 (six) months from the moment the Customer has been informed that the device is ready to be picked up, the Customer should take into consideration that after the previously mentioned time period it will not be possible for the Service centre to restore data and it will not be possible to process claims concerning this service. Under justifiable circumstances from the Customer concerning the necessity to store data for a longer time period, the Customer must submit clear and unmistakable claim in timely manner for limiting deletion of specific data. These claims will be reviewed in accordance to regulatory enactments and this Privacy policy and an answer will be provided.
No restrictions apply to the storage of Anonymised Data, however, we also store such data only in the amount and for the period of time that is necessary. 
Our goal is to ensure that the information about the Customer is correct and up-to-date. Therefore, We ask Our Customer to notify any changes in the information provided by the Customer.
