Personal data of all persons who have agreed to receive marketing content in the form of a newsletter or (including IP address or other identifiers and information collected through cookies or other similar technologies) are processed by the controller:
- For the purpose of providing services by electronic means – to the extent of the content made available in connection with initiatives related to the controller’s activity or, in justified cases, information concerning the controller.
- In order to make contact forms available for the purposes of offers – then the legal basis for the processing is the necessity of the processing for the performance of the contract (Article 6(1)(b) of GDPR);
- For analytical and statistical purposes – then the legal basis for the processing is the controller’s legitimate interest (Article 6(1)(f) of GDPR) consisting of conducting analyses of the Users’ activities, as well as of their preferences in order to improve the applied functionalities and provided services;
- For marketing purposes of the controller. The rules of personal data processing for marketing purposes are described in the section “Marketing”.
Contact forms (and handling the data acquired through the form)
The controller provides a possibility to make contact using electronic contact forms on the websites he owns. Using the form requires providing personal data necessary to contact the User and respond to the inquiry. The User may also provide other data in order to facilitate contact or handling of the inquiry. Providing data marked as obligatory is required for accepting and servicing the inquiry, and their omission results in the impossibility of servicing. Providing other data is voluntary.
Data from contact forms are processed in order to identify the sender and to handle his inquiry sent by the form provided – the legal basis for processing is the necessity of processing for the performance of the contract for the provision of services (Article 6(1)(b) of GDPR);
- for analytical and statistical purposes – the legal basis of the processing is the legitimate interest of the controller (Article 6(1)(f) of GDPR) consisting in statistics regarding inquiries submitted by Users.
The controller processes Users’ personal data in order to carry out marketing activities, which may consist in:
- providing electronic marketing content to Users that is relevant to their interests;
- to send the user e-mail alerts about interesting offers or content, which in some cases include commercial information;
- conducting other types of activities related to direct marketing of goods and services (sending commercial information by e-mail and telephone).
In order to carry out marketing activities, the controller in some cases uses profiling. It means that by means of automatic data processing, the controller evaluates selected factors concerning the user in order to provide information in line with the user’s preferences and to gather statistical information.
The website of Heller Consult Sp. z o.o. collects a series of general data and information each time a user accesses it. These general data and information are stored in server log files. They relate to information including:
- browser types and versions,
- operating system used by the access system,
- a website, from which the access system gains access to our website (so-called Resellers),
- subnet pages that can be accessed via (5) date and time of access to the website,
- Internet Protocol address (IP address),
- Internet access system service provider and
- other similar data and information used in the event of attacks on our information systems.
Using this general data and information, the controller does not draw conclusions about the individual. Rather, this information is required to:
- properly deliver the content of our website,
- optimize the content of our website and its advertising,
- ensure the continued functioning of our information systems and our website technology, and
- provide law enforcement with information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyber attack.
This anonymously collected data is statistical, and is further evaluated by the controller for the purpose of increasing the data protection and data security of our company, with the aim of ultimately providing the best possible protection for the personal data we process. The anonymized data of the server log files is stored separately from any personal data provided by the affected person.
If the User has given consent to receive marketing information by e-mail and other means of electronic communication, the User’s personal data will be processed for the purpose of sending such information. The basis for data processing is the legitimate interest of the controller, consisting in sending marketing information within the limits of the consent granted by the User (direct marketing). The User has the right to object to the processing of data for the purposes of direct marketing, including profiling. The data will be stored for this purpose for the period of existence of the legitimate interest of the controller, unless the User objects to receiving marketing information.

Routine deletion and blocking of personal data
The controller shall process and store your personal data only for the period of time necessary to fulfil the purpose of the storage or, as the case may be, by European directives or regulations or by any other legislator in laws or regulations that provide for a different retention period.

After the end of the processing period, the data shall be irreversibly deleted or anonymized.

Legal basis for processing
Article 6(1)(a) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for our company for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific purpose of processing. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, in processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of any other service or performance, the processing is based on: article 6(1)(b) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The same principle applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual activities, for example in the case of inquiries regarding our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation that requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Article 6(1)(c) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be required to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our establishment was injured and his or her name, age, health insurance or other relevant information would have to be provided to a doctor, hospital or other third party. The processing would then be based on Article 6(1)(d) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).Finally, the processing may be based on Article 6(1)(f) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Under this legal basis, processing operations that are not covered by any of the above legal bases are required if the processing is necessary to protect the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject prevail. Such processing operations are specifically permitted to us because they are explicitly mentioned by a European legislative body.
Legitimate interests in processing that are pursued by the controller or a third party.
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1)(f) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is our legitimate interest in conducting our business for the benefit of all our employees and our shareholders.
Duration of storage of personal data
The criterion for the duration of storage of personal data is the relevant statutory retention period. After the expiration of this period, the relevant data will be routinely deleted if they are no longer necessary for the fulfillment or conclusion of the contract.
Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; necessity of a contract; obligation of the data subject to provide personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide.
We clarify that the sharing of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax legislation) or also due to contractual provisions (e.g. Contracting Party Information).
Existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company, we refrain from automated decision making or profiling.
User requests for actions described in the “User Permissions” section may be directed to:
- in electronic form – by means of the e-mail account which was used to grant the User’s consent to data processing, to the address firstname.lastname@example.org
- in traditional letter – to the correspondence address of the controller: Heller Consult Sp. z o.o. with its registered office at Chałubiński 8 Street, 00-613 Warsaw with a note “Request for user data”.
The request should specify what kind of data operation it relates to (obtaining a copy of the data, restriction of processing), what kind of processing the request relates to (e.g. use of a particular service, activity on a particular website, receiving a newsletter containing commercial information to a particular email address, etc.).
In a situation in which the controller will not be able to determine the request on the basis of the information received from the User, the User will be contacted in order to clarify the information. The response to the request shall be provided to the e-mail address from which the consent to data processing was granted, and in the case of consents sent by letter, by ordinary mail within 30 calendar days from receipt of the request. If it is necessary to extend this deadline, the controller will inform the applicant of the reasons for the extension.
Security of personal data
The controller shall take all the necessary measures to ensure that also its subcontractors and other cooperating entities guarantee the application of appropriate security measures whenever they process personal data on behalf of the controller. The controller shall systematically conduct a risk analysis in order to ensure that the personal data are processed by him in a secure manner – ensuring in particular that only authorized persons have access to the data and only to the extent necessary for the performance of their tasks. The controller makes sure that all operations on personal data are recorded and performed only by authorized employees and co-workers.
