  • Requirement to provide personal data.
  • The provision of personal data is voluntary in most cases, however, the lack of the consent to the processing of the personal data in whole or some of them may prevent or hinder the purpose for which the persons providing the data intended to support the activities of the Foundation, initiate contact or cooperation.
  • Given the above, in order to pursue the goals specified in item III, the necessary data specified therein should be provided. Not always these will be all the data listed in item III, and their scope will be limited by the principle of minimalism and the need for the Foundation to have the particular personal data.
  • Personal data retention period and rights.
  • The personal data will be stored for the period consistent with the provisions of the binding law.
  • The persons providing personal data always have the right to request the following from the Controller:

  •  rectify the personal data, 
  • remove the personal data,
  • restrict the processing thereof,
  • submit an objection against the processing thereof or

  • Automated personal data processing and profiling.
  • Personal data can be used for automated data processing, also for profiling, namely building analyses and forecasts concerning the data subject on the basis of the collected personal data.
  • Profiling involves the activity of the persons providing the data under the Foundation’s statutory operations and can be applied in its each possible aspect. It allows effective and purposeful actions to be taken, directly focused on the scope of activity of the persons providing the data, minimizing the interaction
    in the areas outside their interest.
  • Automated personal data processing can rely on customization of any delivered content as well as, in some cases, assignment of a personal category to the user’s profile.
  • Transferring personal data to third parties.
