- storage of data for archiving and accountability purposes (i.e. to fulfill legal obligations).
We retain personal data for these purposes to such processing.
If you choose to enter into an agreement with us, we will process your personal data to the extent necessary to carry out the processing. This applies both to contracts concluded within the framework of providing services by electronic means (e.g. sending a newsletter or an e-book) and to cooperation contracts or provision of services. If in connection with the contract concluded (Article 6.1(b) GDPR) it appears necessary for us to process personal data which have been made available or entrusted to you (the data of your Customers), we shall conclude with you an appropriate data protection agreement (DPA), which shall constitute a legal basis for the processing of such data by us.
We shall retain the personal data provided to us under the contract for the contract duration and also on its termination for the following purposes:
- pursue any claims relating to the performance of the contract;
- prevention of fraud and abuse;
- statistical and archiving;
- or a maximum of the limitation periods provided for by law after the contract termination.
Additionally, the law (Article 6.1(c) GDPR) requires us to process your data for tax and accounting purposes. We will retain this information for as long as required by law.

We will retain personal data collected based on your consent until it is revoked or the purpose it was processed for has been achieved or until it becomes obsolete. You can withdraw your consent to the processing of personal data at any time by sending an e-mail to: [email protected].
To whom can we share the data?
Subject to applicable law, we may share your data with other controllers or transfer it to processors whom we commence to process the data, such as hosting providers, cloud computing providers, marketing agencies, subcontractors of our services (such as accounting and legal services) and entities entitled to obtain data under applicable law, such as courts or law enforcement agencies, only if they make a request on an appropriate legal basis, of course.
Is providing personal data voluntary?
Providing your data is voluntary. We require you to provide personal data only at the stage of entering into an agreement with us (e.g. in the scope of sending a newsletter or e-book), and then in connection with the need to settle it (i.e. for accounting, tax or protection against claims).
What are your rights regarding your data?
In connection with the processing of personal data, pursuant to the principles set forth in the provisions on the protection of personal data, including the GDPR, you are entitled to certain rights, including:
- the right to access your data, i.e. the right to obtain confirmation from the TSH as to whether or not your personal data is being processed by us, or to obtain a copy of your personal data. This is to ensure that you are aware of and able to check how the TSH uses your personal data. We may refuse to provide a copy of your personal information where this could adversely affect the rights of another person;
- the right to rectification, i.e. the right to request the TSH to rectify any personal data that is inaccurate or incomplete without delay (e.g. where the TSH processes your incorrect name or address);
- the right to delete your data (also known as the “right to be forgotten”) – it enables you to request the deletion of your personal data if, for example, your data was used illegally, or your consent was withdrawn (if it was the only reason for processing your data). However, the “right to be forgotten” does not constitute an absolute right to erasure of personal data as there are certain exceptions to this right, e.g. where we still need to use the data to establish, pursue or defend legal claims or to fulfill a legal obligation (e.g. under accounting or tax law);
- the right to restrict processing – you have the right to prevent us from further using your personal data if, for example, the TSH is in the process of evaluating a request for rectification of your data. If the processing of personal data is restricted, TSH may still store your personal data, but may not further actively use it (e.g. for the purpose of fulfilling a contract).
To the extent that the processing of your personal data is based on a legitimate interest, you have the right to object to the processing of such data. However, the TSH may continue to process personal data where it is able to demonstrate valid and legitimate grounds for processing overriding your interests, rights and freedoms or where necessary to establish, pursue or defend a claim.
To the extent that the processing of your personal data is based on consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. The consent withdrawal shall not affect the lawfulness of the processing that has been carried out on the basis of the consent prior to the withdrawal.
If you would like to exercise any of these rights, simply email us at: [email protected]
What is more, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority responsible for the processing of your personal data by us: President of the Personal Data Protection Office (address: Personal Data Protection Office, ul. Stawki 2, 00-193 Warsaw).
Do we transfer your data to countries outside the European Economic Area?
Your personal data may be transferred outside the European Economic Area subject to appropriate legal safeguards, such as standard contractual data protection clauses approved by the European Commission or decisions of the European Commission stating an adequate level of protection (e.g. Privacy Shield).
Do we process your data automatically?
