It concerns mainly personal data provided in the form when registering an account on the site, placing orders and concluding a sale agreement, as well as signing for the newsletter. In the case of personal data provided to us in relation to a complaint, the legal basis for their processing is the necessity to perform/handle the sale agreement of the advertised products.

In the case of data processing operations for the aforementioned marketing purposes, with the exclusion of those which are implemented as part of the newsletter, which operates on the basis of the regulations, the basis for such processing shall be fulfillment of the purposes resulting from legally justified interests implemented by the Controller or its partners (Art. 6 section 1 letter f of the GDPR), whereas in such case the partners do not participate in the processing of your data. Sometimes, within the scope in which the partners of the Controller can also have direct access to such information, the legal basis of such processing is a voluntary consent expressed by you (Art. 6 section 1 letter a of the GDPR). On the other hand, the basis for presenting, creating, directing and implementing dedicated advertisements, offers or promotions (discounts), which are based solely on the automated processing, including profiling, tailored to personal preferences to the highest possible degree, which can in a significant manner influence your consumer decisions, is a voluntarily expressed consent (Art. 6 section 1 letter a, Art. 22 section 2 letter c of the GDPR). However, it concerns solely Customers of legal age.

In the remaining (other) purposes, your personal data can be processed on the basis of:

a) voluntarily expressed consent, e.g. persons participating in competitions (Art. 6 section 1 letter a of the GDPR);

b) applicable provisions of law - when the processing is necessary in order to comply with a legal obligation to which the Controller is the subject, e.g. when the Controller settles the concluded sale agreements on the basis of tax or accounting provisions (Art. 6 section 1 letter c of the GDPR);

c) necessity for purposes other than the ones mentioned above, resulting from legally justified interests implemented by the Controller or a third party, in particular in order to establish, investigate or defend claims, communicate with you, also via contact forms (including providing answers to your questions), and conduct market and statistical analyses (Art. 6 section 1 letter f of the GDPR).

- Profiling - occasionally, we process your personal data in such a manner, to use the obtained information to assess the shopping preferences in order to make it easier for you to make and/or plan purchases or effectively conduct the complaint procedure (personal preferences, interests, behavior, location or movements etc.). With the use of the cookie technology which is applied on our website, it is possible to learn the preferences of users through the use of statistics regarding the number of visits on our site or the most popular products. Customer behavior analysis helps our specialists to better understand your preferences and expectations, adjust our content to the needs and interests and therefore not only tailor advertisement to your liking but also select the best products which will suit your requirements. The collected information regards the IP address, the browser type and language used, the type of operational system, the Internet service provider, information on the time, date and location and information sent to the website via the contact form. In order to learn more, please contact us at:

For the purposes of displaying advertisements, presenting offers or promotions/discounts directed to all in a manner tailored to your needs, the Controller can acquaint itself with your preferences, for example through an analysis of the number of visits to the online shop, shopping preferences and other areas of interest within the scope of the offered products and solutions. It allows us to better understand your expectations and continually adjust to your needs and preferences, without significantly influencing your decision-making. The Controller uses advanced technologies thanks to which the aforementioned actions are performed by a system in an automated way. Application of such solution allows to transfer the most up-to-date content which is easily accessible.

In the case of persons over eighteen, the abovementioned analysis of interests is also used in the process of creation, direction and implementation of dedicated advertisements, offers or promotions tailored to your needs in an automated manner, which may produce legal effects or significantly influence you in a similar manner, potentially restricting access to it for other persons (option unavailable for persons who have not reached the age of eighteen and did not grant their consents for such actions by the Controller). Such actions are different from the ordinary “profiling” (that is adjusting messages and banners to match your preferences) in that their results may significantly influence the Consumer’s choices, that is, for example, their result may be an exclusive, very attractive and time sensitive offer of products or services directed solely at a dedicated group of persons on the basis of the history of their purchases or behaviors on our website. The more a given person uses the services of the Controller and purchases its products, the better the promotions and surprises can be prepared with that person in mind.

Pursuant to Article 21 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 Art. 6 section 1 letters e, f you have the right to object to profiling. Such information should be sent to the following email address
