The data will be stored for the duration of your account. You can decide to delete your account at any time, but this will not lead to the removal from our database of information about your orders placed using your account. Data about orders are stored throughout the life of the website due to the possibility of identifying the returning customer, reconstructing their purchase history, discounts granted, etc., which is our legitimate interest referred to in Article 6(1)(f) of GDPR. If the statute of limitations for civil law claims, criminal law or administrative law penalties expires after the end of the activity, the data will be deleted after this period.

In addition, after this deadline, the data may still be processed by us for archival purposes for the possible need to defend, establish, or assert claims, as well as identify the returning customer. Please bear in mind that we are obliged to keep accounting records, which may contain your personal data for the period required by law. If the period of limitation of civil law claims, criminal record, or penalties under administrative law expires after the end of business, the data will be deleted after this period.

How long will we store 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.
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 are related to the processing of your personal data. The following processors are involved in the processing of personal data:

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, that would have legal effects on you or that would similarly significantly affect you.
