What information about users do the Services collect and how do they use it?

The Services limit the collection and use of information about their users to the minimum necessary to provide them with services at the desired level, pursuant to Article 18 of the Act on Providing Electronic Services. In particular, when collecting personal data, we distinguish those which are actually necessary to provide the service by electronic means. Providing other personal data (i.e. data which are not necessary to provide the service by electronic means) is not obligatory, it is at the discretion of the person to whom the data refer and their processing by PowerBad depends on their consent.

We emphasize that only in some cases, e.g. when subscribing to free newsletters, surveys or order forms we collect more detailed information about users, such as e-mail addresses or other personal data (see also answer to the next question).

We ensure that any personal information, if collected as part of the Services, is mainly used to fulfil PowerBad's obligations to its customers (e.g. delivery service and subscribed messages). This information is not shared with third parties unless:

  • with the prior express consent of the persons concerned to do so


  • if the obligation to provide these data results (will result) from legal regulations.

How does PowerBad use information from order forms for free newsletters, purchase forms, other forms and surveys conducted on the Services?

The Services include order forms that allow customers to place orders for products and services offered by PowerBad. The data collected in this way is used mainly to fulfil obligations to them (to complete this statement read also the answer to the previous question).

The data obtained in this way is added to the mailing list. The e-mail address is necessary in order to be able to send the user the newsletter ordered by the user.

Customer contact information is also used to contact them when necessary (e.g. in case of order confirmation). At any time, users of the Services who have ordered a newsletter have the possibility to unsubscribe from receiving it; see below the answer to the question: "How to unsubscribe from our selected services?
