The period of storage of personal data

The period of data processing by the administrator depends on the type of service provided and the purpose of the processing. As a rule, the data is processed by the time the service is provided or the order is processed, until the consent is withdrawn or effective opposition to the data processing is filed in cases where the legal basis for data processing is the administrator’s legitimate interest. The data processing period may be extended if the processing is necessary to establish, investigate or defend against any claims, and after this period, only in the case and to the extent that the law will require it. After the processing period, the data is irreversibly deleted or anonymized.

The administrator, taking into account the state of technical knowledge, the cost of implementation and the nature, scope, context and purposes of processing and the risk of violating the rights or freedoms of individuals with different probability of occurrence and threat severity, implements appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a degree of security corresponding to this risk.

Unfortunately, no way to transfer data over the Internet is completely safe. Although the administrator makes efforts to secure the transferred personal data, it cannot guarantee the full security of transmission over the Internet. Therefore, all events affecting the security of information transfer, including, for example, the suspicion of sharing files containing viruses and other files of a similar nature, should be reported to the following e-mail address: office@atmoterm.pl.
