Privacy policy


On May 25, 2018, new data protection regulations will come into force. These rules are set in Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of theEuropean Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (known as the R0DO - Personal Data Protection Regulation or GDPR - General Data Protection Regulation). This Regulation introduces a uniform law on personal data protection in all Member States of the European Union and thus also in Poland.

The new regulations are to increase the personal data protection of data subjects through, among others:

  • The right to be forgotten - in a situation in which a person does not want his/her data to be processed and there is no basis for such processing. As the European Commission points out, this tool is supposed to protect the privacy of individuals, not necessarily allow for removing information from the past or restricting press freedom.

  • Easier access to data - data subjects will have access to a wider range of information about the processing of their data and this information should be available in a clear and understandable form. In addition, the right to data portability is to allow data subjects to transfer data between Internet service providers.

  • Data breach notification obligation - Controllers are required to notify the supervisory authority and, where appropriate, the data subject of a data breach.

  • Need to implement data protection mechanisms in the design phase and data protection by default - this means, for example, that the protection of personal data is to be taken into account already at the stage of the creation of an online service and that default data protection settings ensuring the minimization of processed data should become the standard, for example on social networking sites.

  • Stronger children's rights protection - according to the regulation, children's personal data deserve special protection because they may be less aware of the risks, consequences, guarantees and their rights in relation to the processing of personal data. In the context of information society services offered directly to children, the Regulation provides that the consent to the processing of data of a child under the age of 16 must be given or approved by the person having parental authority or custody of the child and only to the extent of the consent. It is also worth noting that Member States may lower the age limit indicated above and set a lower limit, which must be at least 13 years old.

  • Better compliance with the applicable regulations - the Polish data protection authority will be able to impose administrative fines of up to €20 million or up to 4% of total annual global turnover.
