How long we store personal data

How long we store personal data

Our company stores your personal data for the period necessary to provide the products and services, completion of the required transactions or other necessarily purposes, such as fulfillment of our legal duties, contractual obligations, solution of disputes and legal enforcement of negotiated agreements. These needs differ depending on the type of the product or service provided, or other type of agreed contractual relationship, and for this reason, the real period for which we store the information may vary significantly.

When handling your personal data for specific purposes, we respect the data minimization rules. We thus collect those of your personal data that we really need for a specific purpose. At the same time, we set strict internal archiving rules, which ensure that we do not store such data for longer period than we are authorized.

In general, we store the data for 5 years from the date when the purpose for their processing passed. This deadline is based on the statutory limitation period and on the archiving and filing rules of our company.

Almost for all contractual relationships, we must ensure documentation of the calculation and payment of tax, arising from the legal regulations on VAT and the related tax procedure. According to these legal regulations, we are obliged to keep tax documents and records containing detailed data related to the provision of selected services for a period of 10 years after expiry of the tax period in which the performance was realized. Thus, we are generally obliged to keep most of the basic data and information about the products and services on the basis of these legal regulations.

In exceptional cases, for instance, during litigation, our company may keep the documents containing your personal data for a longer period in order to protect our legitimate interests. This mainly happens in a case where we would have to present this data as evidence in litigation (with regard to the statutory limitation period according to the current Civil Code, for instance, in connection with provision of warranty).

Personal data processed in connection with your possible operation in a nuclear power plant environment are required to be retained in accordance with applicable laws throughout their operation and for the next 30 years after their termination.

Audio records processed in connection with trading on regulated markets we store for the duration of the contractual relationship and 10 years after its termination.

We keep the data that we process on the basis of your possible consent for the duration of the validity of your consent. To rule out doubts, we keep the actual consent and change or withdrawal of your consent from the title of our legitimate interests for duration of the validity of the consent and no later than 5 years after its termination.
