If the cookie is temporary, it works until you close the current browser window. Other cookies have a specific duration (minutes, days, months, years…). You can restrict, block, disable or delete any cookie yourself at any time. You do this in the settings of the browser you are using.

2. IP Address: An IP address is a number that locates the computer from which the user accesses the website. Access to websites is recorded for the purpose of verifying illegal activities. If the system determines that you do not carry out any activities that would endanger the operation of the website, the IP address is immediately deleted.

3. Your contact information that you provide to us yourself: If you contact us via the contact form on the website or by e-mail, we process your personal information, such as your first and last name, if you have entrusted them to us, and your e-mail address. We process data exclusively for the purpose of processing your message, which you sent to us via the contact form. We keep them until your request or question is resolved, then we delete them within 3 months. The basis for such processing is our legitimate interest, as this is the only way we can answer your question.

You can also order our service via the form. In this case, submitting the form means establishing or requesting the establishment of a contractual relationship with us. Such processing of personal data is therefore based on such a “contractual relationship” or “request” to enter such a relationship. In case of placing an order, we will keep your personal data for five years from the performance of the service, after which we will delete it within one year. We justify such storage with our legitimate interest, as we need the data in the case of your or our legal claims from your order, which expire five years after the execution of the order.

Other users of your personal data

Our website is hosted by Erpium d.o.o., which is our current internet service provider and which acts in the role of i. “contractual processor” or “processor” of this data. We have a contract with them, according to which they are obliged to use your personal data exclusively on our behalf and to ensure their protection in accordance with the applicable regulations and our instructions. Your personal data may also be processed by other natural or legal persons who provide us with usual support services (providers of Internet communication services, IT services, etc.).

Data transfer outside the EU

The operation of this website is supported by service providers (hosting, IT maintenance) who may be located in countries outside the European Economic Area, such as e.g. Squareup International Ltd, Google LTD, USA. We have concluded standard offers with providers that include standard contract clauses of the European Commission.
