When placing an order in the store, you must provide the data necessary to complete the order. Depending on the order details, the data catalogue may be different.

If you are requesting a VAT invoice for a company, we need to know the tax identification number and the business address. Providing data is voluntary, but necessary to place an order.

In addition, our system saves your IP number that you used when placing the order.

The content of the correspondence may be archived and we are not able to clearly determine when it will be deleted. You have the right to request a history of correspondence with us (if it was subject to archiving), as well as request its removal, unless its archiving is justified due to our overriding interests, e.g. defense against potential claims on your part.

In such a situation, your personal data is processed in order to fulfil our tax and accounting obligations (Article 6 (1) (c) of the GDPR in connection with the provisions governing tax and accounting obligations).

In this regard, we rely on our legitimate interest, referred to in art. 6 sec. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Own marketingdetails

As part of our store, we use the mechanism of recovering abandoned carts. In a situation where you start the ordering process but do not complete it, our system will record this fact in order to take action to invite you to finalize the order. These activities may include, in particular, sending you an e-mail with an incentive to complete your order or the display of targeted advertising while browsing the Internet.

Our store may also collect information about your activity and on this basis show you targeted ads while browsing the Internet. However, if you are not a registered user, the information used for this purpose is not personal data. Only when they are combined with your personal data collected in the user account, they acquire the nature of personal data.

We carry out the activities described above based on our legitimate interest referred to in art. 6 sec. 1 lit. f GDPR consisting in the marketing of own products.

Analysis, statistics, optimalization – details

We collect statistical information about user behaviour when browsing our websites, such as clicks on links, transitions between pages, time spent on individual pages, etc. We analyze this information in order to optimize our pages in terms of user experience, effectiveness and conversion. In most cases, the information processed in this way is not personal data. The exception is when you are a registered user. We can then combine this information with your other data collected in your user account.

We carry out the activities described above based on our legitimate interest referred to in art. 6 sec. 1 lit. f GDPR, consisting in the optimization of our websites.

# 7: How long will we keep your personal data?

The data storage periods have been indicated separately for each purpose of processing. You will find this information under the details for each separate processing purpose.  

# 8: Who are the recipients of your personal data?

We will risk saying that modern business cannot do without services provided by third parties. We also use such services. Some of these services are related to the processing of your personal data. External service providers who are involved in the processing of your personal data are:

  • hosting provider that stores data on the server,
  • cloud computing service provider in which backups that may contain your personal data are stored,
  • provider of the mailing system in which your data is stored, if you are a newsletter subscriber,
  • CRM system provider in which we store your data in order to improve the customer service process and for archival purposes,
  • supplier of the invoicing system in which your data is stored for the purpose of invoicing,
  • an accounting office that processes your data visible on invoices,
  • courier companies that process your data to the extent necessary to deliver your order,
  • a law company that obtains access to data if it is necessary to provide legal assistance to us,
  • an entity providing maintenance services that gains access to data, if the technical works carried out relate to areas where personal data are located,
  • other subcontractors who gain access to data, if the scope of their activities requires such access.

Your personal data may also be transferred to tax offices to the extent necessary to fulfill tax and accounting obligations. It concerns in particular all declarations, reports, statements and other accounting documents in which your personal data is located.

In addition, if necessary, your personal data may be made available to entities, bodies or institutions authorized to obtain access to data on the basis of legal provisions, such as the police, security services, courts, prosecutor’s offices.

What’s more, we use tools that collect a lot of information about you related to the use of our store. It concerns, in particular, the following information:

  • information about the operating system and the web browser you use,
  • viewed subpages,
  • time spent on the website,
  • transitions between individual subpages,
  • clicks on individual links,
  • the source from which you come to our website,
  • the age range you are in,
  • your gender,
  • your approximate location limited to the town.
  • your interests based on your online activity.

This information in itself is not, in our opinion, personal data. Since this information is collected by external tools that we use, this information is also processed by tool providers on the terms resulting from their regulations and privacy policies. Basically, this information is used to provide and improve services, manage them, develop new services, measure the effectiveness of advertisements, protect against fraud and abuse, as well as personalize the content and advertisements displayed on individual websites, sites and applications. We have tried to describe the details in this regard in the further part of this policy, as part of the explanations for individual tools.

# 9: Do we transfer your data to third countries or international organizations?

Yes, part of the processing of your personal data may involve their transfer to third countries.

We transfer your personal data to third countries in connection with the use of tools that store personal data on servers located in third countries, in particular in the USA. The providers of these tools guarantee an adequate level of personal data protection through the use of compliance mechanisms such as standard contractual clauses.

We also remind you here that we use external tools that may collect anonymous information about you. We have mentioned this on several occasions under this policy, including in response to a previous question. The providers of these tools often use servers located around the world, in particular in the United States of America (USA), to store the collected information.

# 10: Do we use profiling? Do we make automated decisions based on your personal data?

We do not make decisions based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which would have legal effects on you or similarly significantly affect you.

Yes, we use tools that may take specific actions depending on the information collected as part of the tracking mechanisms, but we believe that these actions do not have a significant impact on you, because they do not differentiate your situation as a customer, do not affect the terms of the contract, which you can enter into with us, etc.

By using certain tools, we can, for example, direct personalized advertisements to you based on your previous actions taken on our website or suggest products that may be of interest to you. We are talking about the so-called behavioral advertising. We encourage you to learn more about behavioral advertising, in particular regarding privacy issues. Detailed information, along with the ability to manage your behavioral advertising settings, can be found here: http://www.youronlinechoices.com.

We emphasize that as part of the tools we use, we do not have access to information that would allow your identification. The information we are talking about here is, in particular:

  • information about the operating system and the web browser you use,
  • seen subpages,
  • time spent on the website,
  • transitions between individual subpages,
  • the source from which you go to our website,
  • the age range you are in,
  • your gender,
  • your approximate location limited to the city,
  • your interests based on your online activity.

We do not match the information indicated above with your personal data, which is in our databases. This information is anonymous and does not allow us to identify you. This information is stored on the servers of the suppliers of individual tools, and these servers can most often be located all over the world.

The exception to the anonymous nature of the information referred to above is the situation in which you have a user account in our store. This information can then be matched with your data stored in your user account. However, we still do not make decisions based on automated processing, including profiling, with the use of this information, which would have legal effects on you or similarly significantly affect you. We believe that activities in the field of targeting ads to you depending on your activity in our store and taking optimization measures do not significantly affect you. Therefore, in this regard, we rely on our legitimate interest, referred to in art. 6 sec. 1 lit. f GDPR.

# 11: What rights do you have in relation to the processing of your personal data?

GDPR grants you the following potential rights related to the processing of your personal data:

  • the right to access your data and receive a copy of it,
  • the right to rectify (correct) your data,
  • the right to delete data (if in your opinion there are no grounds for us to process your data, you can request that we delete it),
  • the right to limit data processing (you can request that we limit the processing of data only to their storage or performance of activities agreed with you, if, in your opinion, we have incorrect data or we process it unreasonably),
  • the right to object to the processing of data (you have the right to object to the processing of data on the basis of a legitimate interest; you should indicate a special situation that, in your opinion, justifies the cessation of the processing covered by the objection; we will stop processing your data for these purposes, unless we will demonstrate that the grounds for data processing by us override your rights or that your data is necessary for us to establish, assert or defend claims),
  • the right to transfer data (you have the right to receive from us, in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format, personal data that you provided to us on the basis of a contract or your consent; you can commission us to send this data directly to another entity),

  • the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority (if you find that we are processing data unlawfully, you can file a complaint with the President of the Office for Personal Data Protection or another competent supervisory authority).

The rules related to the implementation of the above-mentioned rights are described in detail in Art. 16 – 21 GDPR. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with these regulations. For our part, we consider it necessary to explain to you that the above-mentioned rights are not absolute and you will not be entitled to all activities of processing your personal data.  

We emphasize that you always have one of the rights indicated above – if you believe that we have breached the provisions on the protection of personal data while processing your personal data, you have the option to lodge a complaint with the supervisory body (the President of the Office for Personal Data Protection).

You can also always ask us to provide you with information about what data we have about you and for what purposes we process it. All you need to do is send a message to contact@empathiceurope.com. However, we have made every effort to ensure that the information you are interested in is comprehensively presented in this privacy policy. You can also use the e-mail address provided above if you have any questions related to the processing of your personal data.

The information collected as part of Facebook’s Pixel is anonymous, i.e. it does not allow us to identify you. Depending on your activity on our websites, you may reach a specific group of recipients, but we do not identify individual people belonging to these groups in any way.

However, we would like to inform you that Facebook may combine the collected information with other information collected about you as part of your use of Facebook and use it for its own purposes, including marketing. Such Facebook activities are no longer dependent on us, and you can search for information about them directly in Facebook’s privacy policy: https://www.facebook.com/privacy/explanation. You can also manage your privacy settings from your Facebook account. Here you will find useful information in this regard: https://www.facebook.com/ads/settings.

Social media tools – details

Our website uses plugins, buttons and other social media tools, hereinafter collectively referred to as “plugins”, provided by social networking sites such as Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIN, Twitter, Pinterest.

By displaying our website with a plug-in of a given social network, your browser sends information about the visit to the administrator of this social network. Since the plug-in is a part of the social network embedded in our website, the browser sends information about the request to download the content of the given social network to our website.

The plugins collect certain information about you, such as user ID, visited website, date and time, and other information about the web browser.

Social network administrators use some of this information to personalize the viewing conditions of our website. For example, when you visit a page with a “Like” button, the administrator of the social networking site needs to know who you are to show you which of your friends also like our site.

The information collected by plugins may also be used by administrators of social networking sites for their own purposes, such as e.g. improving their own products, creating user profiles, analyzing and optimizing their own activities, targeting ads. We have no real influence on how the information collected by the plugins is then used by the administrators of social networks. You can look for details in this regard in the regulations and privacy policies of individual social networking sites.

Social network plugins collect and transmit information to the administrators of these websites even when you browse our website without being logged in to your account on the social network. However, then the browser sends a more limited set of information.

If you have logged in to one of the social networking sites, the website administrator will be able to directly assign a visit to our site to your profile on a given social networking site.

If you do not want social networking sites to assign the data collected during your visit to our website directly to your profile on a given website, you must log out of this website before visiting our website. You can also completely prevent loading of plugins on the website by using appropriate extensions for your browser, e.g. blocking scripts.

In addition, the use of certain plugins may involve the publication of certain information within your social profiles. For example, information about clicking the “Like” button may be available on your Facebook timeline. Of course, if you share some content on your social media using plugins embedded on our website, this sharing will be naturally visible in your profile.

As for the details related to the processing of information collected by plugins by the administrators of social networking sites, in particular the purpose and scope of data collection and their further processing and use by administrators, as well as the possibility of contact and your rights in this regard and the possibility of making settings to protect your privacy, you can find everything in the privacy policies of individual service providers:
