The purposes, legal bases and period of personal data processing are indicated separately for each purpose of data processing (see the description of the individual purposes of processing personal data below).

Permissions. GDPR (RODO) grants customers the following potential rights related to the processing of their personal data:

The regulations related to the implementation of the indicated rights are described in detail in art. 16 – 21 GDPR (RODO). We encourage you to read these regulations. It should be emphasized that the abovementioned rights are not absolute and will not be entitled to the client in relation to all processing of his personal data. We have made every effort to indicate, as part of the description of individual data processing operations, the rights to which the client is entitled as part of these operations.

One of the rights indicated above, which is always available to the customer is the possibility of lodging a complaint to the supervisory body (the President of the Office for the Protection of Personal Data).

The customer may also always ask the Administrator to provide him with information about what data he has about him and for what purposes he processes it. All you need to do is send a message to customerservice@samarite.eu. However, we have made every effort to ensure that all information is comprehensively presented in this privacy policy. The e-mail address given above can also be used for any questions related to the processing of personal data.

Security. We guarantee the confidentiality of all personal data provided to the Administrator. We ensure that all security measures and personal data protection required by the personal data protection regulations are taken.

All entities entrusted with the processing of personal data guarantee the use of appropriate security measures and the security of personal data required by law.

Objectives and processing activities

User’s account. By creating a user account in our store, the customer must provide his/her e-mail address and define the password for the account. Providing this data is voluntary, but necessary to create an account. As part of editing the user’s profile, you can provide further data about yourself, ie your name, billing address and shipping address. Providing this data is completely voluntary. You can have an account without providing these additional data. In this situation, when placing an order, you will need to enter the data manually each time.

The data entered by the customer in the user’s account is processed solely to maintain the account and ensure the possibility of using it. Providing data in the user’s account is to facilitate placing orders in the store by automatically substituting data for the order form.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data of the customer within the user’s account is the implementation of the account agreement, which is concluded on the basis of the store regulations.

The data collected in the user’s account is processed as part of the WordPress system and stored on the server.

The user’s data will be processed as part of the account as long as he/she has an account on the website. After removing the account, the data will be removed from the database, except for data regarding submitted orders.

At any time, the user may access their personal data processed under the account by logging in to their user account. After logging in to the account, you can modify your data at any time, as well as delete it (except for data regarding submitted orders). You can also decide to delete your account at any time.

In relation to the data collected in the user’s account, the customer also has the right to transfer data.

Orders. When placing an order, the customer must provide the data necessary to execute the order, i.e. name and surname, billing address, delivery address, e-mail address, telephone number. Providing data is voluntary, but necessary for the order to be processed.

The data provided when placing an order are processed in order to fulfill the purchase, issue an invoice, include the invoice in the accounting documentation and for archival and statistical purposes.

The data contained in the order placed via the store are processed as part of the WordPress system and stored on the server.

If the customer has a user account in the store and the order has been placed via the store, then the order will be visible within the order history of the account.

Each order is documented with a receipt or invoice.

Orders are also registered in the internal database for archival and statistical purposes.

Data on orders will be processed for the time necessary to perform the contract, and then until the expiry of the period of limitation of claims under the contract. In addition, after this date, the data can still be processed for statistical purposes. It should also be mentioned that the Store has the obligation to store invoices with personal data of the customer for a period of 5 years from the end of the tax year in which the tax obligation arose.

In the case of order data, it is not possible to rectify this data after the order has been processed. You also cannot object to the processing of data and require the deletion of data until the expiry of the period of limitation of claims under the contract. Similarly, you cannot object to the processing of data and request removal of data contained in invoices. After the expiry of the limitation period for claims under the concluded contract, one may object to the processing of data by the Store for statistical purposes, as well as to demand removal of data from the Store’s database.

In relation to the order data, the customer also has the right to transfer data.

Complaints and withdrawal from the contract. When the customer submits a complaint or withdraws from the contract, he provides the Store with personal data contained in the content of the complaint or a statement of withdrawal, which includes the name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, bank account number.

The data provided in regards with the submission of a complaint or contract withdrawal are used to implement the complaint procedure or the procedure for withdrawing from the contract.

The data will be processed for the time necessary to carry out the complaint procedure or the withdrawal procedure. Complaints and contract withdrawals may also be archived for statistical purposes.

The customer cannot rectify the data enclosed in complaints and declarations of contract withdrawals. He/she also cannot object to the processing of such data and demand the deletion of data until the expiry of the period of limitation of claims under the concluded contract. After the expiry of the limitation period for claims under the contract concluded, the customer may, however, object to the processing of the data by the Store for statistical purposes, as well as demand the removal of his/her data from our database.

E-mail contact. The customer, by contacting the store via e-mail, naturally provides his e-mail address as the sender’s address. In addition, the content of the message may also include other personal data.

The data is processed in this case in order to contact the customer, and the basis for processing is his consent resulting from initiating contact with the store. The legal basis for post-contact processing is the legitimate purpose of archiving correspondence for internal needs.

The content of the correspondence can be archived and it is not possible to clearly determine when it will be deleted. The customer has the right to demand a history of correspondence that he kept with the store (if it was subject to archiving), as well as request its removal, unless its archiving is justified due to overriding interests of the store, such as defense against potential claims by the customer.
